A Photo a Week Challenge: Crowd

Crowd at the Globe

While in London, we caught a performance of The Comedy of Errors at the Globe Theatre. The show was sold out, but I was still surprised at how many people were willing to stand through the whole performance in the “groundling” area (our seats were under the covered area on the first level — amazing!). In most theaters in America, the groundling area is filled with seats and called “the orchestra section” and a seat there costs as much as in the first two rows of the balcony, known as the dress circle or lodge (depending on how posh-posh the theater is). If you’re willing to stand (albeit a few feet or sometimes merely inches away from the action on stage), the price of your ticket drops dramatically. However, this production was 2-1/2 hours long. Not for my feet. I snapped this photo during the interval (aka as intermission). The audience was well behaved and enthusiastic throughout the performance.


Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Each week, I’ll come up with a theme and post a photo that I think fits. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Thursday, when the next photo theme will be announced.
  2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “A Photo a Week Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ and “Photo a Week” tags.
  3. Come back here and post a link to your image in the comments for this challenge.
  4. Follow nancy merrill photography so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements.

    1. All of the seats were sold out for the show, and I don’t know what their capacity is for the standing area, but it was a huge crowd. It was very fun to experience both the show and the amazing feeling of sharing it with all of these people.
