tedxbg swag

 
After the second and the fourth TEDxBG editions in 2011 and 2013, I was one of the photographers of this year’s fifth conference again 🙂 As always, it’s a (long) day of great people, inspirational ideas, beautiful music and a good bit of fun.

 
The auditorium awaits.

What a stage this year!

Clever little signs. You need those with 1000+ people roaming around 😉

tedxbg2014_003

 
Boom!

People were excited despite the early hour on a Sunday…

… and were queuing up outside the doors.

From the operations “room” the show was ready to start. For some reason this is my favorite shot of the day.

Imagine how the speakers feel when the clock starts ticking down and the crowd is silently looking at your every step… a bit daunting 🙂

The organizers. Good job guys!

tedxbg2014_012

 
Our host was quite entertaining, per usual.

Ok, the talks are starting.

tedxbg2014_007

 
A poignant question indeed…

tedxbg2014_016

 
Backstage action.

tedxbg2014_008

 
Is it?

The super useful bags people get every year.

One of the smaller halls had this guy play classical music for the people, great idea.

The dark void of the main stage can be scary.

tedxbg2014_015

 
This is how things looked from up top… full house!

tedxbg2014_022

 
Some lecturers had flown from abroad for this.

A good bit of dark comedy intertwined with some serious food for thought in this talk.

tedxbg2014_023

 
People seemed to be enjoying themselves… or were just mental 😉

tedxbg2014_017

 
Soup in the break, made by some of the participants on the previous day. Delicious 🙂

You can’t have a TED conference without music.

tedxbg2014_024

 
Samuel Barber’s Adagio for Strings as performed by the philharmonic orchestra… just beautiful.

tedxbg2014_029

 
Stealing a moment.

tedxbg2014_028

 
Agreed.

tedxbg2014_030

 
As far as responses go, this is excellent 🙂

tedxbg2014_021

 
Fun outside.

tedxbg2014_026

 
Intently listening.

tedxbg2014_027

 
It’s a long day indeed, some just can’t handle it all 😉

tedxbg2014_031

 
An important talk about food waste.

tedxbg2014_032

 
Not sure what this was about (bees & pollination?), but loved the image.

tedxbg2014_033

 
TED, always better with friends around 😉

tedxbg2014_034

 
Happy audience.

tedxbg2014_014

 
Well, onto next year then 🙂
