Today started at 4:35 AM. Aaaand then again at 4:40 AM, since my first alarm was not sufficient. At least I know myself well enough to plan ahead and set the second alarm because today was definitely one I did not want to sleep through.
Arriving at the airport made me wish I had woken up even earlier, as lineups were practically out the door. By the time my friend and I made it through security we were on the run as the intercom blared a final boarding call for Gate 16 with service to Winnipeg.
Tomorrow is Beyonce and Jay Z. Bey and Jay. Yonce and Hov. Sasha Fierce and Jigga. Call them what you want but there is no denying that this power couple is going to put on the show of my year, possibly even my life.
It has been a while since I have photographed a significant event entirely on film but this weekend I am taking that risk. It is exhilarating. And it only adds to the overall feeling of the weekend, which is entirely anticipation.
But if I absolutely must have instant gratification from my photos then at least I still have Instagram. #beyandjay2014
