Amazon pictures is the problem. Every time that I open it up I find more and more “lost” pictures. It doesn’t help that I’m a little lost myself.
You’d think that I want to travel. I don’t.
Although some big news about travel happened yesterday via Live Nations’ president Michael Rapino. He’s booked the three major festivals in the UK. He believes that touring in the United States is a little more difficult because of individual state restrictions, but that by late summer the mid-sized music halls could be in play.
Music. Work. Money. Tour buses. Hotels. Catered food. Bad food. Gallons of coffee. People messing with you 16 hours a day.
Funny. Even my last line sounds good to me right now.
With that will start to come photo jobs. Pictures. Work. Money. The rest is not applicable.
Of course this all depends on the people in the country. I was reading something on Facebook about local venues starting to open up. A woman said just to break the law. Since I always want to know who is going to fight with me I went to her page. A lawyer. Can you believe it? A lawyer.
She graduated from Loyola New Orleans Law School. As I recall from my days at the university, three kinds of lawyers came out of there. Very good and moral lawyers. Ambulance chasers and liars.
What can I say? She doesn’t come from the first group. And, she and her ilk are going to be what delays everything.
I saw it a little yesterday when I went to get injected. The hospital is in an active area of the city. Little cafes, bars and restaurants line the streets. I didn’t see much social distancing. For sure, I saw no masks.
Everybody looked like they were having a good time. Come on folks. Think.
The sky and other stuff, namely balloons.
I like to try to make unusual photographs. At the balloon fiesta that’s not easy. Working photographers like me are all trying to do the same thing. Make a lot of different kinds of pictures.
There’s a lot of good to that. If we do our jobs we will make pictures that you haven’t seen. And, we won’t get into each other’s way doing it.
This is one of those pictures. I made it from an overlook near I-25.
I’d like to say that it’s a little gauzy and soft because I wanted the picture to look that way. In truth, the sky had a lot of noise in it so I had to correct it.
I don’t know why. That’s not the usual place for noise to appear.
No matter. I like the outcome.
Stay safe. Stay mighty. Do all the rest. And, get injected. Enjoy all the outcomes.
