Rolling Stones, Superdome, Dec. 1981
I went with some friends to New Orleans from Monroe, Louisiana in 1981. I took my camera apart and tried to hide the lenses, body, etc., under my coat in my armpits and other places to sneak in my camera.
I needn't have bothered. They searched everyone because it was winter, cold, and everyone had on coats. They found my camera and lenses, but didn't care at all. They were looking for folks trying to bring in their own alcohol.
They didn't care that I had a camera, they just didn't want people to have their own booze, so that the beer concession would ring up more sales.
The fastest film one could buy in 1981 was ASA 400. So my pics are just a hair blurry, but I still ended up with some shots that look good a t 4x6 or 5x7.
