Guitars & Cadillacs

Being a musician, a visit to the historic Sun Studio was a must-see tour on a recent trip to Memphis, Tennessee. I selected black and white on my Nikon D300 to capture an authentic feel of the 1950s era inside and outside. Upon leaving the building, a 1955 Cadillac pulled up to drop something off. I had just a minute to get set, compose, and snap off a couple of shots. This classic car under an historic landmark reminded me of one of my favorite country songs, “Guitars, Cadillacs.”

I must say that you've really got 1950's era on that shot. Great! Oh, before i forget, Cadillac has declared a brand new safety feature for a lot of its line that is targeted at cutting down on distracted driving. Consumers can choose seats that will vibrate, just like a cellular phone, when proximity sensors recognize nearby vehicles. With a short term loan, you can afford an extra option on your car.

It is really wonderful for all. It affects your souls and minds from the unfathomable. The communicator shows the persecution and lie of your hardwork.

To my mind the high point of Memphis is Sun Studios. It is still possible to book recording time there which if I recall was about $75 an hour. Very tempting.
