Twisted
Lens: D FA 15-30/2.8 Camera: K-1 Photo Location: Brazosport College 
Posted By: Sailor, 10-04-2020, 03:26 PM

Back in the '50s, Annie Ross - then a member of the BeBop vocal trio, Lambert, Hendrix and Ross - belted out the tune, "Twisted". It was not until I was in high school in the '60s did I discover LHR, and I was enthralled with vocalise - an approach to jazz in which singers apply their voices to tunes with horn-like improvisations. In more recent times (i.e. over the last 3 decades), a number of groups - notably Manhattan Transfer - have followed the same path, and I recall that a pop singer (Joni Mitchell ??) did a pop version of "Twisted."

At any rate, I thought of "Twisted" this afternoon when I photographed this sculpture of a helix with my recently acquired D FA 15-30 - not the first time I've photographed this thing.

I agree with EM! Your story really adds to the images, which are very well done I have to say.

I like it...the picture and also the mention of the word 'bebop'. Haven't heard that for awhile. Takes me back to late '40's, 1950's movies.

My friend, I really appreciate the nice words. I love Manhattan - we saw them live about two years ago; they're getting long in the tooth, but they're still smokin'!

I like those shots very much. Sunbursts definitely adds to the picture. Black and white as well. Thanks for sharing!

Nice photos! Did you use any special filters to create these sunbursts?

Thank you! I didn't use a filter; I simply stopped down, and the D FA 15-30, like other wide angle lenses, produces them.
