Otto Appreciation Thread

Otto needs some love...we use his wonderful pictures all the time and I know we all love him a lot. And I must say that the man is a concert photo genius imo. He has taken the best pictures of U2 concerts that I have ever seen!

Recently, while avoiding doing homework, I looked through his Elevation Tour galleries and was completely blown away...and so I swiped some of them and decided to start this thread...here are my favorites...bear with me there are a few posts filled with these...so hold on till I get all mine posted



------------------
And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make.

Thanks to Otto, we each feel as if we were at all of the 20-trazillion shows he photographed - and THAT is something to be eternally grateful for! Many thanks, Otto!

Thanks everybody, much appreciated. It's been sort of rough going around here recently and this cheered me up.

There's something new on the site for you that won't be publicly reported for a day or two... enjoy...

((((Otto))))

You are simply the best U2 concert photographer out there! Without you, most of our PLEBA fun would never happen!

Is this surprise for us up already? Or are you going to tell us when it comes? Hehe...going through your site is just like Christmas...there's something new and exciting everytime!

Some more Otto love...

If you guys have not yet read this incredible piece of writing and you need a heart-lifting experience that makes you remember the goodtimes of the Elevation tour...I would suggest reading Otto's "Letter from 3am". He posted it here a long time ago but this is the link for it if you missed it...absolutely incredible!

Otto...if you're listening, I can't wait for you to do some more writing! You write as well as you take pictures!

Otto, you're one of the coolest guys...

At LA3, the young girl who was pulled up on stage during Wild Honey, Faith, was trying to find out if anyone was able to get any pictures of her up with Bono and Edge. I ended up talking to her briefly after the show and introduced her and her family to you. You were gracious and pleasant.

Even after such grueling schedules, you still manage to be such a cool person to talk to. You probably don't remember me from Adam (if it helps any, I was walking around with what my friends deemed a "walking billboard t-shirt" heh. - let's just say it was very sparkly... and I had an American Flag bandana tied to my head), but we all remember you and how much of an impact you have made on the U2 community.

You totally rock. Also, congratulations on getting one of your pictures into Rolling Stone. It goes to show... they recognized true talent.
