For all those who missed out on this year’s Pune Oktoberfest, here are a few snaps clicked on the three day event. The snaps are of two days as I was there only on Saturday and Sunday.
As usual the beer counter was always full with no elbow room.
The difference I found (when compared to last year) was that the band was a wee bit better and they came up with a variety of songs played perfectly by the group. It was sad that I could not get a perfect ‘group photo’ of the band. The nearest I could get was this:
Now who is missing in this? Oh yes the drummer boy, so here you have one of him
And another one of the crooner:
The guy on the key board was multi-tasking (without missing a note) You can actually see it in the video on YouTube
This year I had more video footage than still pictures. Will keep adding more videos as and when they are edited and processed.The second video is on Mamma Mia by Abba
Meanwhile our beer counter is still full
For a change I found many Germans who had turned up and they were really enjoying the evening
The food was good and I found that the service at the counter was very pretty fast and efficient:
On the down side, space was a problem. I mean in a crowd like this how do you expect people to dance.
But still I found many making room for themselves and enjoying the day
It was difficult manoeuvring through the crowd to get some good shots, but I managed to get a few
These two (above) were really having some fun. Later on while adding the watermark on the pic I realised that the figure on his Tee shirt had some significance as it was the year when I landed in Pune.
The scramble is still going on at the Beer counter. I think the design of the counter opening was too small, or was it that they were not expecting such a big crowd?
This guy just saw me clicking as he was singing along, and I caught him with his full energy.
Later there was a repeat, this time along with his friends. Each one with a different pose, but it clearly sends across the message – they were enjoying.
I think I ended up clicking many pictures with their mouth open, a good indication of participation.
