A Day Of Contemplation

Today is a funny day, I mean funny strange funny rather than funny Ha Ha.

I got up early today and took the dogs to the beach in the hopes of a spectacular sunrise.  Meh, flat calm sea, flat grey clouds that the sun only poked through for a minute or two.  It did not make for impressive pictures I am afraid.

Shortly after I got home the rain arrived and boy did it rain.  It has been coming down horizontal all day.  Pretty grim really.   So lunchtime arrived, feet up and watched the football (soccer) on TV.  Well it was o TV but I wasn’t really watching it as I was a little lost in thought.  Having just spent 7 weeks blogging about my list of 75  albums that everyone should own I couldn’t stop thinking about what to do next on my blog and I finally came to a decision.

Boxing day dawn-2

From 01 January 2015 I am going to post one of my photographs each day.  I am keen to improve my photography so where possible I will look to explore things away from my usual subject – gig photography – so I will be looking for interesting subjects and hopefully interesting people.  It should be fun and I hope I will learn a lot along the way. 🙂

About The Sound of Summer

Hi, I am Alan. I live in Broadstone, Dorset with my wife, Shirley, my son, Ryan and two dogs called Bailey and Jasper. I have recently retired after working in the Armed Forces and in Public Service since 1977 so I now have a bit more time to do the things I love. Music is a huge part of my life and always has been. I have a broad taste in music and can find something to enjoy in most styles of music. I have always been attracted to music which has something to say, is outside the mainstream and is perhaps a bit rebellious. I guess my early influences were late 1970's Punk and new wave bands, especially those who came out of Northern Ireland where I grew up. I loved Stiff Little Fingers, The Undertones, Rudi, Starjets etc but also bands like The Ramones, The Clash, The Jam and so on. I like singer songwriters including Van Morrison, Springsteen, Neil Young & Bob Dylan and in recent years I have become more interested in folk and acoustic music but I also love the sort of high drive energetic Folk/Punk music delivered by bands like The Levellers, Leatherat, Ferocious Dog and many others who frequent the UK Festival scene. I have long since lost the desire to spend my holidays laying around in the sun and these days am much more likely to be found in a muddy field somewhere in the UK during the festival season.
