#1 - Allow Me to Re-introduce Myself...

I took this photo on December 9, 2011 at the Jay-Z and Kanye West Watch the Throne tour in Las Vegas.  I was fortunate to capture this moment as Jay-Z was stepping on to the floor stage (as opposed to the main stage on the two stage set-up) getting ready to perform H.A.M. 

The silhouette of Jay-Z with his hat, microphone and walk are unmistakable.  The lighting and camera shake from my friends screaming next to me ended up producing an interesting half moon light effect from others cameras and phones.

I had taken many photos before and many photos after this one, but the uniqueness of this moment has made it one of my favourite photographs that I have been fortunate to capture. 

Respect to my homie Chet D for the ticket link. 

They don’t paint pictures, they just trace me...
