Avril Lavigne in London, Ontario

April 13th, 2003


After much thought I decided to buy a pair of tickets to see Avril Lavigne on April 13th, 2003 in London, Ontario through her fan club, Back Bone. Well, it was a good thing, because I hear all her Ontario dates sold out in less than an hour through TicketMaster.

I eventually found somebody to relieve me of the extra ticket, not that I was total concerned.

In fact my big concern was being able to get up close and to be able to take pictures of her.

As it was the venue did allow cameras, just not ones with detachable lenses. Had I known, I would've probably have packed my Canon Powershot S20...and had less problems. But, instead I packed a bunch of different cameras that I wasn't too worried about having confiscated.

The first set were taken with a refurbished Olympus Stylus Infinity that I got off of eBay. It was loaded with a 36 exposure roll of 1600 ASA Fuji Film that I found in my refrigerator. I have a couple of fresher rolls in there from a press pack, but I decided not to bring them all. Only had my film X-rayed 3 times during the flight. And, no point having film I didn't get to use X-rayed.

The second set were taken with a refurbished Fuji Endeavor 3500ix APS camera that I also got off of eBay. It was loaded with a 25 exposure roll of 800 ASA Fuji Film. Which was left over from the last time I saw Avril perform. So, it had seen a bit more X-ray exposure....

Unfortunately, my filmscanner seems to be on the blink....so it might be a while before I get the APS images up. But because, I had the film processed at Best Buy, the 35mm negatives are glued into a special sleeve which prevents me from putting them in my film scanner...the images are tweaked from a Kodak PhotoCD.

I also had a Logitech Pocket Digital camera (also a refurbished camera that I got off of eBay), but I never got to pulling it out. Because the show ended before I ran out of film.

Pretty good results overall, I guess, considering I was shooting blind and all the cameras I got from eBay were untested.
