Photographing cemeteries is like photographing homeless people (but that's street photography!), low hanging fruit. While I AM a little late to the cliche (rite of passage?) of shooting in cemeteries, my intention wasn't to make a haunting portrayal of the circle of life or something like that. The light was running out fast, I had to shoot to get out of my slump, plus mausoleums are interesting structures.
This one especially. It reminds me of Stargate.
I saw Tycho play yesterday and it was a pretty fun show. We managed to get a nice spot by the stage and had pretty good view of the performance. I took a couple shots of the show but since they were all from the same angle they aren't too different from each other.
The show was really cool, it had a video component with nostalgic west coast/Jacques Cousteau clips looping and overlapping on a screen behind the band. It was also really refreshing to see a live band play too, as many electronic artists just pretend to do shit while they play stuff off their laptops and occasionally jiggle a MPC.
Funny story is I know Tycho (Scott Hansen) from his graphics design days and blog ISO50 which has been pretty much the only blog I've followed for more than 3 years (I think that's saying alot, considering how tastes change). It's got a mid-century modern, futurist leanings to it which I subscribe to, and it's heavy on electronic music which I can dig as well.
In other news I've amended my hypocritical ways and embraced editing pictures on my phone as well. As a person who uses photoshop frequently, I have no high ground hating on hipstamatic users.
