Posts Tagged ‘Matty P Sunshine’

I now realize that by taking photos of strangers while wearing a big old camera, makes one rather conspicuous. In addition, I have a bit of a reputation for taking these portraits. So it was almost too easy to get Matty to pose for me because he knows some of my ‘strangers’. Turns out Matt was also volunteering at the ball hockey tournament and is a long time Hillside Festival summer volunteer. Seven years with the summer festival and four years with the Hillside Inside.

I asked him if I would have seen him around the summer festival and he mentioned that it was him who always wears the paper mache sun head. That makes sense now! I had always wondered who that was…..this is Matty P Sunshine!!! It’s nice to know that even though 1,000’s of people attend the Hillside Festival, there are lots and lots of lovely, fun people who make it such a treat.

This picture is #69 in my 100 strangers project. Find out more about the project and see pictures taken by other photographers at www.100Strangers.com
