Cacti

Rochester is not associated with cactus, but in an adequately controlled greenhouse, they seem to thrive... at least at the Lamberton Conservatory.

Into the stadium

No, I am not suddenly a sports fan... I am on my way to a seat at a concert by the Irish rock band U2. It is taking place at the New Era Field, home of the NFL Buffalo Bills.

Concerts of this scale are not only a sound explosion, but also a visual extravaganza. The staging is massive and the size of the video screen is almost beyond belief. The spectacle was so much more than the typical i-mag (image magnification) but rather a carefully crafted visual journey; at times intense, and at others hypnotic, and always elegantly stylish.

Needless to say it was a wonderful experience both musically and visually... even if it was in a NFL stadium.
