Oh hey! It is Friday!
Who has time to take photos when you work all night and sleep all day? I’ve worked one evening (shelter), one day (optometry), and two overnights (shelter) so far this week… and am about to head off to overnight number three (though at a different shelter than the other shifts this week). This hasn’t left me much time for wandering around town or for taking pictures this week. Instead, today we’re flashing back to 2007 because of the opera that I went to last night before work: The Flying Dutchman. While I’m sure that the tropical seas of the Pacific near Hawaii are a slightly different hue than the North Atlantic of Wagner’s opera, this production opened with some footage of rolling swells and breaking seas that brought me right back to many times on Offshore.
How was the Flying Dutchman?? I’ll be going on Wednesday & am really excited 😀
It was good… I enjoyed the music more than the acting. It is quite long!
The opening bit during the prelude is fun and reminded me of offshore. Be prepared to be frustrated at the sailors’ lack of seamanship though! 🙂
