Chanteuse extraordinaire encore..



I've always said dynamite comes in small packages, being slightly height challenged at 159cm it's become a bit of a mantra :) Petit singer/song writer/actress and so much more Michaela Burger
is dynamite in black velvet in Exposing Edith. Performed with multi talented guitarist Greg Wain the Fringe World cabaret show takes us on a journey through the highs and lows of Paris's iconic chanteuse Edith Piaf's life. Oh la what a life she had, much of it a mystery even today. As if the lighting wasn't difficile enough, Michaela's show closing, standing ovation rendition of  Non, je ne regrette rien brought tears to my eyes.. in a good way :) I took too many photos to put on the blog but I would love you to have a look at my album from the show here. Happy Friday, take care and stay safe...

  10. Your first photograph is magnificent...the lighting is perfect! I read Edith's history, quite interesting and very edgy, apparently tragedy ran rampant through her life. Thank you for sharing your beautiful photography :)

  11. Stunning photos both here and in your album. You've really captured the show very well. It makes we wish I could have seen it too.

  12. Great lighting and images, Grace. When I get to shows like this, I'm usually in the back about a football field's length away. You'd need a telescope to get images like this. :-)

  20. Oh Gracie... I know you were so sad to see her retire, but thank goodness you were there for that concert with your camera. The portraits you took are awesome. They make me feel like I was there with you. Hope all is well in Australia. I am freezing here in VA with more snow on its way. UGH!

  21. Wonderful photos, Grace. You seem so much taller than 159 cm, really you do. But I'm 157 cm so maybe that's why we see eye to eye on so many things. lol

  23. I'm doing a little catch up and had to stop here to comment on your top shot. Album cover image, I would say! Actually, it would be 'CD' these days, wouldn't it :).

  24. I missed this one originally also. Remember Joan Jett? 5 ft (152cm) powerhouse singer for the Blackhearts? Good things come in small packages. Great exposure on the photos.
