Mayor Hazel McCallion at CLM 2011 tribute to Jack Prazeres
Portuguese singer Hernani
90 years old and still a great speaker. And at 90, when she talks about the history of Mississauga it comes from having lived it.

I finally got a great shot of Mayor Hazel McCallion at the Community Living Mississauga fund raising tribute to Jack Prazeres. At 90 years old, the mayor is still going strong. But the lines on her face make it a chalenge to get a flattering photo. This one shot with a Canon 5D MkII and a 70-200 2.8 lens and a flash is as nice as I have been able to get.

A stage spotlight provided the ultimate hair light for Portugese singer Hernani performing at th eevent. Had to get down on teh floor to get the right angle. And man, what a wonderful voice.
