Event Description

During a recent visit to the aquarium in Sidney I discovered that the Salish Sea is full of surprise and delight.  The variation in colours, textures, creatures and their behaviours invited the imagination to take over.   It is amazing what is under the surface of our seas.

On viewing my shots of the day it struck me that there was a sense of theatre and performance reminiscent to the overstated performances of Old Hollywood…. The flaming red hair of the screen siren, the flowing white boas and satins of Mae West…   Even some of the facial expressions reminded me of actors of old like Peter Lorre or the cameo’s of Alfred Hitchcock….

Ah, I wondered where the title had come from. Good juxtaposition, and I'm looking forward to seeing it today!

Margaret (Our Hollywood star) meets the Underworld.  The show is exceptional.  Creative, colorful imagery.

Wonderful, Margaret! Love the titles. You must have watched a lot of old movies in your time.
