at the last minute i decided to take my girl to see taylor swift. it was her first concert and really, as far as singing idols go, there aren’t many you’d be happy to take your nine year old to. lady gaga, katy perry, kesha… not so much.
We had to have a whole new outfit apparently, so we went shopping last week whilst alex was away on camp. There were new jeans but yesterday was so warm she decided on shorts.
the night she found out i’d got tickets, she made this sign. then she decided she didn’t want to take it with her so we left it in the car but i asked her for a shot with it first.

The concert was awesome and worth every one of the many cents it cost. Taylor changed nine times and phoebe counted each one with delight. We were lucky with our tickets, seven rows from the front centred directly in front of the stage, which sounds close but of course there was the mosh pit between us.
I only took my 50mm lens for fear of having the zoom confiscated as a professional grade camera. I wish I’d taken it because bags weren’t even checked, but you just never know!
And then she moved to the second stage, which was directly in front of our seven rows. These two photos are barely cropped, that’s just how close she was.
Anyway the sets were divine, phoebe wants every one of her nine dresses, plus a few that the dancers and band wore. Even her guitars were amazing. I’m so glad we went.
