It’s funny. I initially gave this image the quite matching title “Tangled Up in Blue”, but then I decided to post another image in my “Electric Ladyland” series instead. It had been quite a while and I had to search my own blog to find out what was the last post. Turns out it was “3040 – Electric Ladyland XX“, and it has the exactly same subject 🙂
At the time you see this, I’ll be working again. I’ve no idea though, when I’ll have the next photo opportunity. I guess I won’t be walking outside the first days, because just that the fever is gone, does not mean I’m rid of the cough 🙂
I have not taken anything that I could show here today. It doesn’t matter though, I have plenty of images that you have not yet seen. Here’s one from early March, another addition to my “Electric Ladyland” series.
Here’s the fourth post for Thursday, and this is a continuation of my long-neglected “Electric Ladyland” series.
And somehow they remind me of my childhood, of a time when those things actually WERE hand-made.
The Song of the Day is of course “(Have You Ever Been To) Electric Ladyland” by jimi Hendrix. For some odd reason the original album does not seem to be available at the moment, thus I have linked to a collection.
Hear the album version on YouTube.
I made a couple of images this afternoon, some are plagued by dust bunnies (LX5! How I miss ya!) and one of them, this one, is an HDR image. That’s one more trick a DSLR’s has in its sleeves. I gave it a mild treatment based on Photomatix Pro’s Dynamic Range Compression tone mapping method. This is particularly well suited to soft sky gradients. Due to the subject matter we are clearly again in Electric Ladyland.
I missed the train yesterday night, thus I took the first one in the morning, a pleasure at this time of the year. This image could easily have been “Fast Train III”, because it was taken from the moving train, but without motion blur and with this particular subject, it is clear that it must be part of my Electric Ladyland series.
You may notice that there is no white border. The reason is simple: I like the image well enough to use it as wallpaper, and a wallpaper with a white border is unthinkable 🙂
If you’re interested: here is the original size.
