Photos from The Gathering of the Fellowship, Toronto - 2006!
Here are photos from The Gathering - all except the ones at the banquet, which I'll try to post later this week. (ETA: link to later post regarding photos of banquet - http://rosamundeb.livejournal.com/279761.html)

The Gathering 2006 Hobbits and Gandalf - photos of a group of hobbits and an excellent Gandalf: http://share.shutterfly.com/action/welcome?sid=9AbsWjFy1aqI9Q¬ag=1



The Gathering 2006 Centerpiece Panel - photos from a gathering of writers, artists, musicians, actors, etc. on how Tolkien inspired them: http://share.shutterfly.com/action/welcome?sid=9AbsWjFy1aqJCw¬ag=1



The Gathering 2006 Signings - largely photos of Craig Parker and Bruce Hopkins, but also the first two fans in line, and a patient man holding his female friends' bags: http://share.shutterfly.com/action/welcome?sid=9AbsWjFy1aqI_Y¬ag=1



The Gathering 2006 Awards - photos taken during the presentation of the Unquenchable Flame (?) awards; yes, that's Amy Sturgis being helped up on a chair to reach the microphone, which is being held by Bruce Hopkins, while Craig Parker holds the flame, using his Asbestos Thumb! There's also Bruce Hopkins standing next to Anthony Burdge (of Heren Istarion), and Ed Rodriguez (not shown here): http://share.shutterfly.com/action/welcome?sid=9AbsWjFy1aqJA4¬ag=1

Awesome photos! I love the faces :) The ones from the awards are hilarious... how long did he have that lighter lit? That's crazy!

Excellent! Bruce was one of my fave LOTR actors that I met - he's got an adorable smile :) Very cool guy. And Craig looks handsome there :)

*G* I'm not sure I put up the best of the two of Bruce with the hobbits, unfortunately - but he's a sweetie. And hilarious around Craig. They did a little entertainment for the people who didn't go to the LOTR musical that I'm sure was hilarious - I wish I could have been in two places at once!

That darn Craig... he IS cute! *L*!

Sadly, these are not as good as your pics, but I'm trying not to be too down on myself. The lighting was pretty poor - no extra lights on the people on stage; it was in a ballroom setting. Which is also why they're all flash rather than ambient!

Oh, perfect!

*LOL*!!! Well, those two beers were pressies from Ms. Abandonada - well-enjoyed pressies, I might add. I can't get them out of Merry and Pip's hands! *G*

Great pics! :) Say, would you give me permission to put the ones of Craig up on my site (www.parker-blue.net)? They are awesome, and I bet people would love to see them. I will of course credit, and link to you as well if you wish. :)

Actually... Anthony is the guy w/the pony tail w/the feather... Ed is the darker complexion man with the mustache, and Jessica (also on organizational committee) is the blonde chick in some of the photos from the awards.

(I know... it's just a list - not in order. But I did wonder... I see a Jessica Burke on the program, but I thought she was married to Anthony, so her last name would be Burdge. Or is her name really Burke?)

Great pics! Many of my photos, especially in the ballrooms, came out dark.
Loved seeing Craig & Bruce again. I hope they do this again in 3 years - maybe Denver next time??

The ballrooms were very tough to photograph in; it's so much easier when there's some kind of stronger lighting aimed at the guests, such as when they're on a stage. They were great! *G* I'm guessing you're from Denver... - *L*!

Thanks!!

These are awesome pics!

Do you mind if I post or link these at the yahoos I own/moderate? (Includes Bruce Craig and Mark Fans, as well as Fans of Bruce Hopkins...)

I was supposed to go, but had to bow out at the last minute... (new job on the coast, like it was a hard decision!)

Your photos are gorgeous! I did buy a few of them, I do hope that's okay. Most of my pictures didn't come out right, mostly because the rooms were too dark when I took them. They will go perfectly in my scrapbook!

I love hearing that - thanks! And they definitely WERE dark rooms. If you're interested, check back when I put up the banquet/costume/band photos from Monday.

(you know, that's the first "Over the Hedge" icon I've ever seen... was it a good movie?)

Eeeeeee! I didn't know you went. I see Debbie/Primmie there too! I'm glad they went ahead and held it again. Is it OK if I link in my journal?

Thanks for all the pictures, Rosa. I love how the men posed with the little hobbit figures. So cute.

Please do! Were you there? (I'm assuming "Primmie" is a different Primula - *G*)

Thank you! And Craig was great about posing; only he and Sala and Lawrence wanted to pose twice!

Came here from a friend's link, and just wanted to say your photos are just beautiful!

I love Bruce he's so fun! But I've never seen Craig outside LOTR...and WOW he looks so different! The only reason I knew it was him was by his eyes and eyebrows lol. And I've gotta say...I like him much better with the dark hair!

Sooo sweet of him to do that... it was his idea and you have no idea how long it took him to balance Merry (who apparently had had too much to drink!). Thanks!

I know... it looks like the flash was just a little too weak on yours; there's only so much you can do unless you get really close or have a more expensive flash. So you got to see the Craig 'n Bruce show, eh? *L*! Looks great! Good pics of "Bilbo" with the wizard - at least I think he was dressed as Bilbo (don't know his name, though). I thought he looked more like a Frodo. Then again, I kept calling poor "Frodo of the Grey Havens" Bilbo! *G* Hard to tell sometimes.

What? No pics of that amazing performer "Thoth" that I've heard so much about? LOL

Nice to see Bruce again, clean shaven and handsome as ever!

And Craig! *sigh*

Awesome pics as always!!!

Did you happen to get any photos of Mike Foster? I know him and would like to forward any pics you may have of him, if you have any.

Thanks!

Mike Foster... darn, no I don't think so! I sort of remember who he is... If he's in any of them, he would be in the "awards" album, since I think he might have gotten one as being a helper, but I don't think I got pics of that part. Sorry!

Nope - I slept in during the Thoth part - *L*! But one of the folks who commented above included a link to their album, and they got some nice ones.

Thank you, and good to hear from you, "Blue Eyes"! *S*

Craig and My Lil' Bear

(Link)
Hey!!! I love the pix from Gathering!!! I worked the Con and had a blast!! Everyone was really awesome. I saw these pix and I was like "MY FRIENDS!!"lol And when I saw the little bear and Craig pic I got all excited! The bear thing is a running joke between Craig and I since the 1st Gathering in 2003. So to see that pic was really nice. So if anyone sees Craig anytoime soon, give him a bear and tell him the Bear Killer says hi! lol Also, I am attending Ring*Con in Germany this upcoming year and wondered if anyone else was going to attend. I have never been and I am trying to find people to chill with while there. Drop a line:OrliChic83@aol.com or if you have MySpace, www.myspace.com/gawani_parelli
Thanks,
Leighann
