Last Shot: Shake the Disease

Seeing that Depeche Mode was playing three nights at Staples Center, I took a couple of days off to rest and photographed the band again for This time around I had a significant amount more help, and at the conclusion of shooting the songs I didn't feel as winded. I attribute it to the large amounts of adrenaline coursing through my veins and my desire to give cancer the finger.

Another challenge lies ahead. Nearly four months ago, I bought a ticket, booked a flight and hotel to see Depeche Mode in Las Vegas. While I have some support of friends who are going to the show, It brings back memories of making the last-minute decision to fly to San Francisco to see Nine Inch Nails. Do I have enough gas in the tank to make the flight and carry my camera gear? It will be a last-minute decision, as always.
