#FrameItFriday (week 24 season 5)


#FrameItFriday (week 24 season 5)

Is this not a quintessential Canadian scene? To make it extra special, just so you know, the photographer and the paddlers were all wearing hoodies because it was chill-eeeeee. Anyhow, this was up in Kawartha Highlands Provincial Park on Wolf Lake last week.

The weather wasn't particularly epic this past week which meant being indoors with plastic moving totes still sitting stacked in the corner of my bedroom....it's been well over a year that they've rested there so with the rain teeming down outside I set about to sift through them and deal with what was inside them. One bin in particular had contents that sidelined me for a few hours. Doing what?? Some of you are new followers to my page and perhaps do not know that pre-covid I did a lot of event photography. I didn't run around the province shooting shows, I spent a good 3 years shooting at the beautiful Sanderson Centre in Brantford, also at least 8 or 9 times at the Brantford International Jazz Festival, 2 WTFest events, 3 mayor's galas and a plethora of hockey, football, rugby, craft sales, fundraisers etc etc. (weddings, headshots, houses, baby shoots, engagements, etc) I found my stash of show tickets, programs, media passes crammed into a huge ripped manila envelope. So I sorted through it, not including my stints shooting for a couple of local publications I organized my ticket stubs in chronological order and placed them somewhat craftily in a memories book I found. I have stubs for 78 shows shot at the Sanderson Centre alone! Here's a list of who I've "shot" at the Sanderson (this is not a confession, lol, I'm just want to share it with you because I'm kind of proud of myself and am tooting my own horn lol) ok: Steven Wright (comedian),Frank Sinatra Jr., Jann Arden (3xs), Glen Miller Orchestra, Blue Rodeo (3xs), The Tea Party (loudest show EVER), Brent Butt, Pavlo, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Gerry Dee, John McDermott, Dean Brody, Downchild, Irish Mythen Music, Logan Staats, George Canyon, Red Green, The Barra MacNeils, Michelle Wright, Dr. Jane Goodall, Classic Albums Live (EXCELLENT artists!) @Robert Bateman, @Murray McLauchlan, @I Mother Earth, @Finger 11, Carl Dixon, Matthew Good, Jully Black, Jesse Cook (3xs), Ashley MacIsaac, Chubby Checker, George Canyon, Howie Mandel, The Abrams, Men of the Deeps, Burton Cummings, Nutcracker, The Tenors, Martina Ortiz Luis, The Ennis Sisters, Leahy, Valdy, Colin Mochrie, KIM MITCHELL, Meghan Patrick to name a few. What can I say, I felt like writing about this on my blog this week because it was SUCH fun to shoot (maybe not so much for my feet). I'm hoping to shoot some more shows in my new hood once in a while but I'm the newbie to town, it could take a bit. Whatever, I've certainly had fun and have met a lot of fine folks. Time for a paddle. Have a great weekend! Rock on!

Peace, love and kumbaya,

Heather
