Photography – Railway Yards

Hi all,

Besides making music, one of my passions is photography. It’s not something I get to do that often these days, but when I do it gives me great joy. Not just the taking of the shot, but also in editing it into something that pleases my artistic eye. I normally work in sepia and black and white as I love the use of tone, but I will occasionally throw in an odd colour shot or two if the photo demands it.

This morning I passed the old tower at my local rail yards, and thought that I better grab the camera and finally get that photo of it, instead of thinking “next time” 🙂

So, I spent a bit of time snapping shots and then editing them when I got home. I hope you enjoy the results. It should appeal to both photography and train buffs 🙂

You can view the full size photo just by clicking on it 🙂

Hello all and welcome to my blog. I thought that as many a good friend has come over to WordPress, in order to put a face to the comments I leave, I would  join up myself. And, while I am here, use the opportunity to leave the occasional post as to what is happening in my world of songwriting, composing, recording and any other big events.

So, as this is really more of a welcome to you all and a big HERE I AM, this will not be much of a post.

But, rest assured there will be a post on its way. The big news is that behind the scenes I have been working on my first CD release. This has been an all-consuming passion and has seemed to have overrun my life. So, I won’t go into any great detail, except that the release date should be sometime in October (fingers crossed). I am very excited that it is so near after two years of hard work, and even more excited that two very talented artists and people who are very dear to me will be working on the visual elements of the CD. One is the very talented photographer Jeremy Watson and the other is artist (and love of my life) Tikarma Vodicka. So, with these two brilliant visual artists in my corner, it should look fantastic!

Also, to coincide with the release, there will be a new website at www.jamiemcpherson.com.au , but this will not be up and running until the CD release. In the meantime, it will just have a link to my MySpace page where you can catch up to the latest news or listen to my music.

Alas, that is it for me at the moment, but I will post once again when the CD is ready to be unleashed onto an unsuspecting world. In the meantime, I will be busy behind the scenes and taking some time to get everything up and running and visiting a few dear friends in WordPress.

Thank you for dropping by, and I look forward to this new adventure.

Yours in music and verse,

Jamie
