For the events assignment I attended the opening of Trinity Leeds, a new shopping centre in the city housing over 120 shops and restaurants. Over 130,000 people attended the two opening ceremonies on the 21st March 2013. The ceremony involved a Aerial Silk Acrobatic performance from Colette Morrow followed by a display of the world’s longest designer dress created by Henry Holland.
This is the photograph I chose as an overall shot describing what was happening during the event. I think it sums it up well as it shows the shopping centre itself, which was clearly the main purpose of my visit there. The image also reflects the amount of people that attended the ceremony.
This is the photograph I chose that sums up my experience of the event. Not only does the image include the main acrobatic performance, but also reflects the amount of people that were there which summarises my experience- a huge number of people eager to get to the front of the crowd.
