Back to the University of Regina

Since 2008 I've randomly found my way back to my former film school at the University of Regina in Saskatchewan for the odd refresh. It's fun to see what's new, check out my old dorms in College West again, and wander around the practically unchanged hallways in the film department. I'll spare you the drawn out personal trip down memory lane, but here's a post that goes into more detail about my last few years in film school if you're interested. 

In the meantime, here are a few snapshots from my latest return to the U of R.

A Few Days of Exploring in Saskatchewan

It's been a few years since I was last in Saskatchewan to do some dedicated exploring. The motivation this time was to catch up with friends, which actually opened the door to play tourist for a change. From staying at some iconic hotels to checking out the new Remai Modern in Saskatoon to retracing my past steps at the University of Regina, the visit turned into a series of completely new experiences in a place that I had previously thought had become too familiar. 

What better excuse to explore and put some extra time on my Canada Day long weekend to use? Stay tuned as the new images debut in the Hey, Canada photo series.

Southport Light Station in Kenosha, Wisconsin

The Old Kenosha Lighthouse (also known as the Southport Light Station) in Kenosha, Wisconsin is a historic Lake Michigan lighthouse that was built in 1866. While it's a beautifully restored structure, I was admittedly just as impressed by a vintage Porsche parked out front.

RCA Studio B in Nashville, Tennessee

You can explore Elvis' home at Graceland, you can hold the microphone he used at Sun Studio in Memphis, and at RCA Studio B in Nashville, Tennessee you can sit at the piano where he recorded some of his biggest hits. In fact, Elvis Presley recorded over 200 songs here.

RCA Studio B Nashville TennesseeRCA Studio B is one of those humble spaces where incredible things happened. It wasn't just Elvis either - Dolly Parton, Roy Orbison, Willie Nelson, Charley Pride, Hank Snow, the Everly Brothers, and numerous other big names recorded music here since Studio B opened in the late 1950s.

Today you can visit RCA Studio B in Nashville by booking a tour through the Country Music Hall of Fame. One of the absolute highlights, time permitting, is sitting in the studio as the lights are dimmed and listening as a raw recording of Elvis singing Are You Lonesome Tonight echos through the space. The experience will transport you back in time.
