The Big Apple Circus: Luminocity

We have attended the Big Apple Circus at Lincoln Center for years now. On Friday evening we saw this year's show "Luminocity" which has the general theme of a visit to Times Square. I personally don't feel the circus needs to have a unifying New York theme every year, but it generally does and that's just the way it is.

Anyway, it was announced before the performance that flash photography and the recording of videos was prohibited, but intriguingly there was no restriction on the taking of those difficult low-light photos that are so often the bane of my existence. Armed only with my iPhone 5S, I'm not exactly ideally equipped for this activity, although I am I suppose a little better off than I was with the 4S. You will recall that not all that long ago I got myself a Samsung Galaxy S4 which itself has a great camera, but I could not tolerate it as a phone and couldn't get rid of it soon enough. So, where does that leave us?
