Sometimes its just a matter of timing...Batman Rises

posted on 17th of july, 2012

They say timing is everything and that is certainly the case of this shot of the Batmobile I took recently at the Six Flag's New England amusement park.

One view one sale! The opening of the latest Batman movie "Batman The Dark Knight Rises" this coming weekend certainly had to be a factor behind this sale.

The Batmobile is on display in the parks Justice League area with DC Comics themed roller coasters and interactive area with costumed figures. Unfortunately the Superman based Bizaro rollercoaster lauded as one of the best in the world was not working at the time we wanted to ride it but we did ride the Batman roller coaster and the Mind Eraser.

According to Warner Bros. "The Dark Knight Rises" takes place eight years on from the previous Batman movie and a new terrorist leader, Bane, overwhelms Gotham's finest, and the Dark Knight resurfaces to protect a city that has branded him an enemy.

I grew up on the campy Batman TV series with Adam West and still love all of the sillyness of that series. After college I really enjoyed the Tim Burton, Michael Keaton version of Batman. It was quirky, harder edged and strange in a comic book way. Unfortunately the sequels did not stand up to the first one.

Then came the reboot of the film franchise in 2005 with Batman Begins, directed by Christopher Nolan and starring Christian Bale. I was completely blown away. It was so dark, so serious, so cool. Batman had grown up just like I had.

I certainly wasn't hauling around a full camera bag of lens and trying to get on the rides - had my trusty Lumix LX5. That thing was huge. I did shoot a few angles but was hampered by the barricade. Its in the line for a ride.

Quality, would be great to shoot from lots of different perspectives, cut them out in photoshop and add them to some creative comic style backgrounds or city scapes :-)
