SIMPLER TIMES

Nothin' too much to talk about here. This was shot at one of the first places I ever shot a photography assignment. Back in high school. Had to revisit the site. It was typically cold and muddy. Thanks Colorado.

Andy took this photo evoking the pre-20th century era, but his title got me thinking in a slightly different direction: the wonderful times of the 50's which, at least in retrospect, seem so innocent and simple. Songs of that era, captured here, have such soul and warmth, but also seem to completely lack the overtones of the Cold War which were so dominant elsewhere. Opportunities like this to soak myself in the musical vocabulary of those are songs are pretty rare, so a little over-indulgence should be forgiven ...
