Legos


Drinking a nice cup o’ joe, windows open, bit of cleaning done and now listening to some music while working on some pics….

Looking at these, I realize I must have looked pretty crazy when touring in Asia. Snapping pics every other minute. Constantly looking around taking in as much as possible. The enormous amount of architecture differences there compared to here in the states is pretty mind blowing. Engineers who constantly push the boundaries to create some of the craziest structures. Places like Germany and several countries in Asia throw my OCD (of order) needle into the red. I can’t help that I like angles. It’s not as bad as it used to be mind you. I’ve learned to embrace it and I still do like my rounds. Just look at my logo : ).

I blame it solely on my extensive experience as a child having a large collection of those Danish delights known as Legos.

Lego /ˈlegō/

n

a construction toy consisting of plastic bricks and other standardized components that fit together with studs

[from Danish leg godt play well]
It is an abbreviation of “leg godt”, which means “play well”

Coincidentally, “Lego” is also a Latin verb which means, “I assemble”.

I guess you could say [I] “Lego” audio systems as well, considering that’s about half of my job. The other half consists of designing them, making them sound good each show, and making sure I or other engineers have a good show with said systems. I guess that’s where the “play well” part comes in, but I digress…

Back to my other love. Photography. Here’s a few I’ve been working on:

Taipei 101

Taipei 101

Incheon Trip

Bridge nearing Incheon

Great Wall 1

The Great Wall – very photogenic…

I’ll be working on more European and stateside photos in the coming days. We’ll see what I can find in my toy box of pics. Hope you had a good weekend! Godnat alle!

More shows down…


Once again the days have been flying by here on Planet Monk. Many concerts and I’m heading fast towards taking some time off. Need to go somewhere and get my mind off things me thinks! By the way, if you don’t follow Leanne Cole’s site, you should. Some great photo editing ideas on there. Need to incorporate some of them soon. Here’s a few pics from the past week or so…

Couple days of shows here featuring ZZ Top, Kenny Wayne Shepard, Reo Speedwagon, and Night Ranger.     Holy 80s Batman.

Private party at the Asia Society. Jennifer Hudson sang.

Just one of the neat things to see at the Asia Society of Texas… (don’t tell the building photo police though)

Time to go for a jog and contemplate buying a new iPhone… ah stupid gadgets. I love thee so.
