All Of This And Nothing

Shot Of The Day: April 24, 2017





QOTD:
A heavy rain, a holiday
A painting of the wall
A knife a fork and memories
A light to see it all
You didn’t leave me anything
That I can understand

— Psychedelic Furs

Drivin’ Sister

Shot Of The Day: April 23, 2017





QOTD:
Drivin’ sister rock’n’roll
She’s got feel on the wheel
Drivin’ sister rock’n’roll
She don’t make with no brakes

Drivin’ sister rock’n’roll
She’s an automobeat on the street
Drivin’ sister rock’n’roll
She’s much too much on the clutch

— Ian Hunter
[click here to view full size image]


Backstory: I met Ian Hunter in 1979. We talked about a new singer he had produced – a guy named Billy Idol whom Ian thought had ‘star potential’ – and about feeling old. The touring was wearing Ian down. It’s 2017 and he’s still touring. When you’ve got petrol in your bloodline you can’t slow down. This one is for Holly – my absolute favourite automobeat on the street. We rode many a mile in my old Mustang, from River Road, along the Anthony Wayne Trail, to Blairmont Avenue. — TAG

Locale: Inside a Memory – a pack of Marlboro reds, a six of Little Kings, and an eight-track playing Mott the Hoople.

Equipment: Nikon AW120 (top/colour) – Nikon D5500 / Sigma 18~200mm f3.5-6.3 DC (bottom/monochrome).

Little Red Corvette

Shot Of The Day: April 20, 2017





QOTD:
Little Red Corvette
Baby, you’re much too fast
Little Red Corvette
You need a love that’s gonna last.

— Prince
[click here to view full size image]

Backstory: In 1983 I would sit on my second story porch – reclining in a hammock, a blender set up on a small table, next to a cassette player. I’d sip Pina Coladas and listen to 1999. Those were days – they disappeared into my rear view far too quickly. RIP Prince, thanks for the amazing music. — TAG

Locale: White Street, Key West (1983) – Stapleton Heights (2017).

Equipment: Nikon D5500 / AF-S DX Zoom-NIKKOR 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5G IF-ED
