"Two species separated by 65 million years of evolution"
Anna, Kara, Matt A., Adam & I all went to see the live Walking with Dinosaurs stage show at the Blue Cross Arena. It was dino-tastic, with a really cool mix of robotics and puppetry (and I'm always in the mood for puppets), but I think my absolute favorite part was the enormous mix of inflating plant-life. From the single blades of grassy-fern-things to the boob flowers to the palm trees, I freakin' loved 'em. The smaller ones ringed the stage, providing something for the dinosaurs to much on, and a bit of color to contrast the flat planes of grass or dirt. So simple in idea, but what a great touch.
I used my CITY press credentials, so I got to shoot the first half of the 96-minute-long show.
Anna and I also spent our lunch breaks on Tuesday with a dinosaur. The RMSC (Rochester Museum and the Science Center) hosted a "Meet the Baby T-Rex from Walking with Dinosaurs" event, so we went and watched the dino both terrorize and endear itself to children. It was alternately snap and charge at them, and then bend down and let them pet its head. For a quick 15-minute event, it was pretty great, and was packed with kids... most of whom were jealous of Anna's hat.
