Day 153: Electric
I dunno what it is about guitars. I don’t play them. They’re not necessarily my *favorite* instrument to listen to. And yet, I keep coming back to them. Maybe it’s their varying shapes and gadgets. Maybe it’s the mix of elements, metal and wood. But whatever the reason, I find them photogenic. I got a little crazy in post today. This was a fine shot as it was, with a lovely silhouetting running down the right side. I was just feeling punchy while editing, so I applied a “glowing edges” filter. It *may* have been all those previous comments from the Spinal Tap crew driving this train. We’ll see if they approve.
