Bagman, Butler and I are sitting in the B&B office scratching out heads and trying to figure out how to shoot next Friday's theme, so creatively picked by Nan -- "The Sounds of My Town." Butler has already given up because he is a rather concrete thinker and has simply declared it an impossible theme. Bagman is trying to get into the spirit by wearing a Debbie Reynolds wig, a bright dress, and spinning around singing, "The hills are alive with the sound of music."
I'm just mulling.
We could shoot the Charleston Symphony Orchestra. If they were playing this week. I went for a walk earlier and I saw things and I heard things...but they weren't the same things.
I could just shoot anything that makes sound and post it and get off easy. But I appreciate Nan's creativity and intelligence too much not to try and figure out something of interest.
And, on top of that, I've recently made a semi-promise to myself to try and shoot more things and spend less time pouring through my archives.
