Architecture and its related heavy geometric content have always fascinated me. Lately I've been experimenting with manipulating that some. More of a musical or dance flavored effect. That's just my personality-get bored so respond with eclecticism. What do you think?
John Lee Hooker-Shake it Baby
Had the urge to listen to the Jesus and Mary Chain earlier...While listening was reminded how much they sound like the Beach Boys meet the Velvet Underground...or the Beach Boys on heroin or... When I first moved to Taiwan they were a regular favorite along with New Order and Echo and the Bunnymen. The cassette tapes (yes I said cassettes) were only about $3 new. Random thought with a photo for the day...
Jesus and Mary Chain-Taste the Floor
Someone made the comment that in social media and the internet space everybody is shouting for attention, trying to be noticed. Signs are no different. Which one will get your attention?
Ornette Coleman-Lonely Woman
Sometimes life can be surreal. Usually when we expect it the least. Hopefully for some of those surreal or possibly dreamlike moments we have camera in hand at the ready.
Thelonious Monk-Monk's Dream
Sometimes in life especially always on hyper-connected life we can feel a sense of human touch deprivation due to all the technological filters we rely on and utilize to make contact with each other. Kind of like being in a cocoon and seeing the light through this web of silk skin...
Geometry and composition. Is it something I think about a lot? Definitely-more and more. The human eye understands it and feels comfortable with it. It's telling the eye in a split second that you'll like it here... When I was composing the shot I didn't see all the geometric elements-probably just the triangles of the stairs and the lead line of the banister. I trust that my mind also saw the rectangles of the upper tiles and diamonds of the lower tiles as well as the circle the runner is running around.
Ho, ho, ho it's that time of year again...ooops. Hey what do we identify with Halloween. Guess they don't have a character/icon like Santa Claus for Christmas? Jack O'Lantern perhaps but has anybody heard him talk, or want to for that matter? So because this is such a theatrical holdiay it's only fitting to include some dramatic music:
