Tales of Brave Ulysses. A return visit to the Sirens of Jeddore Harbour.
During my binge online music purchase this past summer, I was downloading some of my old favorite classic 60s albums from iTunes when I came to this classic by Cream. I’d just done another photoshoot over at East Jeddore, trying to catch the sunset of the view down toward the west side points, which I call ‘the sirens,’ so this seemed like the perfect track for a follow up video.
I’ll leave it to my readers to try to understand why I titled it The Sun Also Sets. I like to mix up my cultural references…for one thing. LOL.
I usually title the shoot as I start to make the video, and before I select the music, although sometimes the process reverses and I have a song in my mind as I shoot, or one comes to mind as I review the images, although I don’t try to illustrate it. The photos I capture are selected by whatever catches my eye and interests me as I look around, (or am pulled around by George. LOL.) Part of the main purpose of putting whole shoots into a video in order, without edits (usually) is to share that experience of creative inspiration and infatuation and the learning and seeing and fascination and all the rest that happens instinctively and on a semi-conscious level. Much of which I’m not fully cognizant of until I review the images, make the video, or finally watch it in playback.
