The Mind of Hambone Episode 2

May 8th, 2013

Have you ever seen a photo and thought of a song? I think many people would say I remember a movie or an event in my life, but probably not a photo. A photo would invoke the cliche thousand words. Since a majority of the photos I took while traveling involved an open car door while the radio cranked out a tune, I feel the music influenced the shot composition of the photo. There are photos of tall ships I took while in Hobart, Australia while I was listening to "Come Sail Away" by Styx that some how make me think of them as pirate ships from a young boy's imagination. Then there are photos of cabins in Cade's Cove, Tennessee in the snow while I was listening to "Winter" by Tori Amos that invoke a thought of father and daughter exploring the snowy wonderland.

Hopefully you have a soundtrack to your life, whether it be classic or punk rock or a combination of many genres. I believe music can be an inspiration not only for movies or events in your life, but also the photos we take. If you haven't tried this, build a playlist in your IPod or burn a CD before you head out with camera in hand. See if you gain new perspective as you try to capture the music in your photography. Until then...

The Mind of Hambone Episode 1

May 7th, 2013

Today I have decided to start blogging on this site. I know this site is all about artwork of all types and it is pretty cool there are so many interestingly creative people all around us. Be that as it may, I doubt I will always be writing about artwork or photography. I am an amateur in this field, but love to take photos of the places I visit. Many of the photos you see on my site are from my travels as I worked training television stations across the United States. I found the people I worked with as interesting as the places they live.

Within the past few years I have married a wonderful woman who shares my love of nature and photography. Although I no longer travel for work, I still like to get out and look for the interesting photographic moments. What makes is better is now my wife and I can share in the experience together.

I hope you find some enjoyment in the photos I have posted. More will be coming soon. Until then...
