A few days ago on my Twitter timeline, I mentioned that I was going to start a photo “project” for a local theatre where I work part time. Nothing major, just some computer wallpaper and screensaver images. Going into it, I knew that I didn’t have the equipment or the room to get an entire frame of the complete subject matter in many cases, so in order to create a comprehensive theme I decided to shoot only fragments of each image, showing enough to capture the location and the sense of fun and drama, but not showing the entirety of anything.
I puttered around the place for a couple of hours maybe, trying to stay out of the way of workmen who had unexpectedly appeared on the morning of Super Bowl Sunday to pull network cable through the place in a minor upgrade of the IT equipment. Some of my shots were decent, some not so much. Some of the ideas I can execute better, some of the ideas were pretty much awful to begin with. Over the next few days I’ll be posting some of the results of my efforts.
Above is kind of a neat sign that hangs over the box office window. It is an almost perfect replica of the tickets we actually sell at the Palace. I thought is was a pretty good photo, and a good way to kick off the theme. I won’t be posting Palace pics every day…I’ll scatter them around between some of my non-projects works, but here’s where it starts.
