the boy...plugged inthe boy…plugged in

all of my recent shots have been of birdies…and turtles…and alligators…and otters…well, you get it…so i decided to look to my massive library of neglected images for a change of scene…sometimes i think it’s good to wait a bit and revisit images after awhile, to give a different perspective on what works and what doesn’t…of course, this philosophy only works if you aren’t shooting tons and tons of pictures…which i do…so many awesome images get lost in the shuffle…i definitely need to figure out a better workflow…sigh…anyway, this one is of the boy, playing his new electric guitar, which he got as a birthday gift back in january…i like it processed this way…it sort of captures his spirit, at least in my eyes…i think he’ll like it, too…

dylan’s 11th birthday

IMG_4107yes, the boy can wail!

my boy’s 11th birthday was on sunday…his birthday gift was a new-to-him electric guitar, which he chose a week earlier at the guitar center in winter park…given a budget, the boy chose quite well, a used paul reed smith with a pretty sunburst finish and excellent sound…however, when you purchase used gear at guitar center, there’s a ‘police hold’ on it if it’s been recently traded in…so you can’t pick up your purchase until so many days have passed, in case it turns out to be stolen…anyway, the police hold ended the day after his birthday, and since his dad was in orlando anyway, he swung by to pick it up, and the boy’s celebration rocked on yesterday…he so loves his new guitar…he sounds awesome playing it, too…happy birthday, my young rockstar xo
