The Downtown Lights From Afar – Stuck in Customs

The Downtown Lights From Afar

The Dark Knight Rises Soundtrack from Hans Zimmer!

I was excited when I saw The Dark Knight Rises Soundtrack (iTunes link) was available for pre-order on iTunes. Not much longer now! I’ve got a few special photos set aside to edit while I listen… it will be a great evening!

I was in his studio when he was recording part of it. You would not have believed the electronics and machinery that filled his studio to produce the sounds. It looked like he had filled every space with ENIACs and Big Iron sound-mixing machines to create tones that had never before been produced. Here is an article about one of my trips to his studio before the dark knight rose to take over his “little boudoir” as he calls it. 🙂


Daily Photo – The Downtown Lights From Afar

Tom and I drove up to the top of a dormant volcano to look down on Waikiki late one night. It was a rather long day of being out in the rain and muck — and it was still raining when we arrived here. By this time, my D3X was in serious malfunction mode! I could only get Live View to work, and I had to use that to take photos…. not exactly ideal conditions!
