Tonight I finally made it out to Nashville, hoping to catch some action since the CMAs were in town. It wasn’t too busy or crazy when we were there, but I did have a good time, saw some live music, and shot some stuff. It’s late here, so here is a few shots, mostly straight from the camera:
Tonight on my way home I passed through foggy Waterford, CT, and thought a shot of something in the fog would be cool. But when I pulled into a parking lot, I saw this music store right next to a music themed pizza restaurant. I thought it was kind of cool, esp w/ the neon in the window.
I also stopped at a small pond to try some stuff out. The last one is just light painting with a flash light, then using split toning to change it from white to colors. I dedicate the last one to my awesome gf 🙂
This evening I didn’t have a subject in mind for today’s photo/blog post, so I started rummaging through drawers looking for interesting objects to shoot. I came across my fist iPod from about 10 years ago. It is the one w/ the four touch buttons under the screen, black and white, and a 15 GB hard drive. I remember thinking how tiny it was to hold so much music. It was great to have with me on deployments on my submarine while I was in the navy. As you can imagine space is a premium and I was used to packing a Diskman, batteries, a battery charger, and two cases of CDs. Replacing all that with something the size of a deck of cards was amazing!
But anyway, it had died about 5 years ago. Being a pack-rat, I held onto it for some reason, i’m sure. But today I decided I wanted to see the inside. So I took it apart carefully (mostly) and took some shots to share.
The third shot I wanted to have a little fun with, so I tried playing with split toning. I didn’t really know what it did, but I’ve got a great idea how it works now 🙂
