Day 240: Like a Whisper

30/30 of 30 Days of Music

Inspired by Tracey Chapman’s “Talkin’ Bout a Revolution” –

And just like that, 30 days of music is over. [sniffle] I’m sad! This theme was a blast. Today’s shot ended up being a modification of what I had planned because the weather wasn’t cooperative. The original idea was to have a gang of kids lined up as silhouettes in the background with cowboy hats, guns, stick ponies, but with the same foreground. To make it work space wise, though, I needed to shoot outside. Rain this afternoon…so no dice. I’m happy with how it turned out. It’s probably more true to life. ;-)

Don’t be surprised if you see more music themed shots in the future! I’ve got a few more ideas up my sleeve.
