“Kind of Blue”
Winter provides opportunities to a photographer. You can shoot stark winter scenes, enjoying the black and white landscape and some days there is sunshine to provide color.
This is a one where the setting sun kisses the sky and the blue hues radiate across the snow-covered landscape. Blues and highlights of the warm setting sun. Kind of Blue.
As I was growing up, I wanted to learn to play guitar. My parents provided the opportunity, bought me one and I took lessons for five years at Levis Music Shop in Rochester, my instructor was Don Ames, he was a Jazz Guitarist, played a Gibson 335, we sat in a small studio the size of a closet. He had a style of Wes Montgomery. I couldn’t wait for my lessons every week, mostly to hear him play. That’s where I found my love for Jazz.
I love all styles of music, but Jazz is my favorite. One of my favorite Jazz artists is Miles Davis. His album “Kind of Blue” has been regarded by many critics as the greatest jazz record, Davis's masterpiece, and one of the best albums of all time.
Many of you who know me know that as I “see” photographs I relate them to my love for music and specific songs. As I compose the shot through the viewfinder, I often have specific song come to mind.
As I was looking out the back window this evening, I couldn’t help but think of “Kind of Blue”.
