Sometimes I have no problem finding a suitable image, sometimes I have to make one. Yesterday was of the latter category.
I tried to process an image that had quite interesting lines, but then nothing more. Light was garbage, tonal distribution was garbage, colors as well, and after I had finished a B&W version this morning, I decided to try another one.
Well, I just did, and although the image had some merits, it just wouldn’t work. Finally I remembered my friend Bill Birtch and his motion blur experiments, and – what can I say – I found the result strangely satisfying.
The Song of the Day is “Keep On Movin’“, originally from Pino Daniele’s 1984 album “Musicante”. This album is regrettably unavailable via Amazon, thus I link to the 2CD collection “I Grandi Successi”, probably a good idea because for many it would be their first Pino Daniele album anyway. Hear the song on YouTube.
