The Palace, Bad Boy Blues Band

I have been wanting to get out and take public pictures. I've taken the first step. Thursday July 14th, The Palace Theater in Greensburg, Pennsylvania had a free concert. (They are doing a series of free concerts through July and August. Cool, right!) So I took the opportunity to scoop up my camera and venture out for music and atmosphere.

I think usually these concerts are in the courtyard outside The Palace Theater, but this night it was inside with the threat of rain. But that was perfectly fine in my book. I took some pictures of the amazing theater and sharing those here with you today.


Entering!

I had to take a picture of these lovelies. I noticed above the board of movie posters there was a little family of doves. Mom sat watching as the babies were cleaning up for the crowd visiting.

I felt like the open doors were inviting and I was a special guest to the theater.

The marble! Oh my! It's magnificent. The banister and steps were gorgeous. 

Upstairs was a beautiful balcony equipped with tables, small bars, and a great view of the entrance. The chandelier sparkled it's beauty across the room.



In to the concert! The band this evening was Bad Boy Blues Band. They had a blues-y feel mixed with classic rock. They were relaxing to listen to. There were chairs and tables set up on and below stage to give a personal feel to the evening. There was food and drinks being served as well! Nice way to relax on a Thursday.






Then I left, feeling relaxed and with some beautiful pictures of The Palace. I look forward to making another trip to listen to the bands and take more pictures.


All the pictures are done with the resident lighting inside. No flash was used. Next time I go, I would like to take pictures inside with a flash, to see the difference.

  2. Oh I like these and those action shots on the post before this one. Beautiful! Only criticism? Make the pics bigger in the post. You rock and I may have to take photo lessons from you. I've done the darkroom thing once, but don't think I can do the chemical thing again. Thank goodness for digital! LOL

    1. Hi Melissa (B&T) Oh thank you! I wondered if I should make the images bigger here. I might play with the sizing of the columns to see what I can work out. I know there are a lot of pictures but I *think* (don't hold me to it) that if we click on them they will be bigger. I'll have to see what I can do. :) And thank you for the kind words. I wasn't 100% thrilled with these as they could have been better, but I'll get there. :)

      I would have loved to have done the darkroom thing, but now all I have are digital cameras. ;)
