It is only now and only slowly, that I find the time to enjoy some of the books that came out of SoFoBoMo. One that particularly inspires me because of its wonderful fresh look on details “in between”, is Esther Emma Jongste’s “Colorful Daily Details“. I’m loving it and it influences the way I see. Yesterday’s telephone receiver (which is currently on Fine Art Photoblog) came out of that, and in a way today’s image as well. After two weeks of fisheye images I enjoy being back to small details.
It’s early in the morning now, I was too tired to post yesterday. Work is tough at the moment. When I left, light was already failing. I probably should have asked two guys, who were practicing bicycle jumps, if I could take some images. I would even have had my flash with me, but after 11 hours of work I could not muster the energy. Pretty silly though. I guess I could have gone away with some first class action shots.
Anyway. I decided for the slow route, and on my way home I took a series of images of the usual things, cars, street corners, graffiti and such. This closeup image of a car back light is what I liked most.
The Song of the Day is “Shiny Things“, again from the great Tom Waits’ Opus Magnum “Orphans“. Take the time and hear into the sound sample on Amazon’s site. The only thing I’ve found on YouTube was an arrangement for ukulele, but – hey, why not? It’s a pretty little melody.
Bill Birtch and I are playing ping pong with these songs from Orphans, every once in a while he chooses one and then I do, but they are really that good. Oh, by the way, Bill has a pretty nice image of a bicycle over there. You know, I love bicycles 🙂
