Big Songs Of Hope And Cheer

The chapel and the sign of Roy's Motel & Café respectively, Amboy, California. June 2009.

For some reason it only occured to me today to try and find out how some of my photographs from this summer's road trip looked in sepia. And I'm quite happy with them. You may wonder why I'm posting pictures now that I took a few months ago... well, that's what I always do, reviewing the pictures, and occasionally I'll crop a picture differently or retouch a few things.

Next monday (October 12th, the day after my 21st birthday) marks the beginning of the university period in my life. This might consume something between three and seven years... but I'll always be taking pictures... archaeology is a field of interest, photography though is my greatest passion, even if I'm just browsing through someone else's photographs if they're good enough.

Those who are familiar with the kind of music I listen to most of the time might may have noticed that almost every blog post so far has been given, and future ones will be given, the title of a song either by Bruce Springsteen, Creedence Clearwater Revival, the Eagles, Runrig, or Ryan Adams. They're some of the artists that inspire me most while editing pictures, and their songs always cheer me up or make me feel even better. Just in case one of you has ever wondered where I get the titles from.
Have a great week everyone!

- Dom

I love CCR. I've listened to them since I was little because they are one of my dad's favorite bands.

Awesome... they're one of my favourite bands too.

Danke sehr Manfred! Ich bin ja schon gespannt, auf welchem Berufsweg ich es zuerst in eine Ausgabe von National Geographic schaffe ;-)

these look nice - i am not normally fond of sepia on bright sunny days but it works well for you - good luck with your archaeology course, i very much enjoyed mine - opens up lots of new ideas

Thanks - well, I need to visit Scotland for sepia photos on cloudy days ;-)
Thanks a lot... yeah, I'll find out soon what it's gonna be like over here.
