Today is a day off and currently noon. Everyone is still sleeping and I’m just relaxing and reading. Sometimes days off can be good, to get a break from driving around. You also tend to sleep longer and take it slow. I talked with the person that we are staying with about photography and social media. She is a photographer herself and I was seeing if she had pointers. Social media is an interesting concept. I am not one to sit and post statuses all day, but now a days it’s the only way to get your photos or name out there. I am still trying to figure out the science to it. I think it comes down to, what is my goal with all this? I have an MBA, and a great job, photography is just a side thing. I’d like to see it go far, but at the same time I want to photograph other things besides music and see other places. I guess its healthy to think about life and where to go. Others just let it all pass by or have their hand-held through life. I’ll figured out my spot in the photography world, but for now I’ll enjoy just promoting the bands I like. Days off make you think.
We walked the streets of Chicago on our day off. We got some good tacos at a place called Big Star, then walked to a record shop, followed by getting Chicago style pizza. I’m a thin crust guy, but Chicago pizza is pretty darn good. I may have eaten one too many. From there we went back to the house to watch St. Vincent, which was very good. Then we ended the night by going to a studio owned by one of the kids whose family owned Cornerstone Festival. We sat around a fire pit and talked music until about midnight and then headed back to sleep. Chicago seems like a fun city and I will have to come back. On tour you don’t get to see a lot of a city, but you do see some things you’d never expect to see.
