Heritage Week - The Drummer


While MadlySnapping the beautiful drum, the drummer picked it up and gave me a few rat-a-tat-tats.


I turned and there was the Baynews 9 Photographer aimed at us. OMG.. I backed up quickly and the pretty lady said. Are you from here? I said yes, and she said may we interview you on camera?


I said no thanks, and took a few snaps of the news guy taking a video of the drum.. I am thinking mine is just as good.... I hope MadSnapper doesn't show up snapping pics of the drummer..

Neat photos of the drum and I like the video, too. Years ago, my hometown got a new GoodWill thrift store. I was happy as could be shopping when I realized a newspaper photographer had captured me! Sure enough, the photo was in the local paper, but thankfully it was hard to recognize me!

Cameras pointed at me are not safe.

More wonderful pictures by you.

I have a friend who is only in her 30's. She and her fiends took drum lessons with a group. So if she was interviewed she would not hesitate.
To play.

I never watched the video. I just came over to your site to see what you had up today. The drum is a beauty.

Have a nice day Sandra.

Isn't it interesting that we photographer snappy types (including myself)would much rather stay behind the camera??

Love the detail on the drum!

Interesting Sandra, it may have been fun to have been interviewed for your local paper. :)

That first picture is gorgeous. Thank you, Sandra, for all your support, for caring, for reading my long posts about my huband's illness. I am so glad for the friendship we have developed on the blogs.

Hmmm. I think I would have declined being interviewed too. :) The drum is a great photo, though, and I like that you photos of the photographer. ;)

Love the drums - my son and daughter both played the drums in school!

Ginny said...

You would have done really good on an interview! Love this drum and I want to make an end table out of it. His playing, it is like a cadence and makes me think of an old time funeral walking down the street behind the horse drawn carriage. SO that means he is doing his job well. I did love watching him play.

Rose said...

That is a pretty drum....I would have said no, thanks, too. If I see a news vehicle I will go out of my way to avoid being near it. I don't even want to be in the background!

Ruth Hiebert said...

Once they see your pictures,you may get a job with the news team. :)

Lois said...

What a beautiful drum. Love the video!

SweetMarie said...

I can't believe you declined an interview. You are the perfect person to be interviewed! You know so much about the area and always have something interesting to say. :)
