Welcome to my new and improved Blog.


I decided it was time for a change!

I write this Blog for me, no one else, just me. It is a way to think outloud, and to share my experiences with the world. Maybe some will be interested and some will not, and who knows, I might figure something out myself. I will talk about whatever comes to my mind, and sometimes it is hard for me to do, but I will do it anyway.

I enjoy photography so you will see a lot of my work. I love to read and you will see quotes from my favorite authors. Generally follow my life as try to obtain my undergrad in Art History and English at Carleton University.

Please read, enjoy and comment, open disscussion is welcome.

Concerts

I absolutley LOVE going to Concerts!
I love it as much as going to plays, only I can take pictures at concerts, well some of them.

I love the music...I love seeing the preformers...I love seeing how the crowd reacts to certain songs and sings along and I LOVE LOVE taking pictures at concerts. I could easily do this for a living.
Think of it! Flying all over being in the front row of any concert and shooting pictures of these amazing, talented people and get paid!

Bluesfest here in Ottawa is one of my most favorite music festivals and I just wish I had more MONEY and TIME to shoot these things.

This year I seen one of my all time favorite bands STYX!

I was supposed to see them over a year ago but canelations and scheduling made me wait. And I now know it was for a reason, TO be able to see them here and get so close to be able to shoot some amazing photos.

I also heard a smaller band called Concession23, which a former teacher of Miranda's is part of. It's Bluegrass but it is very good.

And of course I went seen one of the most favorite Bands of Bluesfest...Bluerodeo.

Lawerence Gowan, he is one interesting and agile man on stage.
What amazed me the most is how much they interacted with the crowd in gestures and thing to throw out at us and just plain nice guys and appericate the fans...and let's face it...with out us there is NO band.

Concession 23...A great local band.

Sharon! How awesome you got to see Styx finally. Your photos are awesome. I always think it would be great to shoot concerts and remember when I used to work at them how jealous I was of all the guys with Press Passes, I don't have any contacts anymore to get me one :( .
