My latest dreams of going out and doing street photography have been dashed by reality – what used to be safe is no longer. There are muggings, robberies right in plain daylight in (once nice) cities like San Francisco. Also, if you like people constantly looking at their phone, tablet or laptop at cafes then that’s what you’ll get now.
I can only thank God that my street photography was done pre cell phone and even pre laptop. People on the street and in cafes, restaurants and bars actually talked to each other and it was much easier to find interesting characters.
Today’s song uses the lap steel and cello and it was a lot of fun. I’m trying to write songs that evoke mood but also texture. I’m doing a lot of little experiments, and I like what’s happening.
