My vinyl collection has begun, though I have yet to find a proper turntable. None the less, I found it fun to photograph what I've collected so far, enjoying the LPs as objects. Here is one of the albums acquired, Blues Brothers - Briefcase Full of Blues.
I love the details in the photograph on the front cover, the catch-light in Elwood's (Dan Aykroyd) eye behind his shades, and the smoke rising from Jake's (John Belushi) cigarette and curling past his tie and lapel.

With any luck the collecting of vinyl records will keep my blog posts more frequent, records being cheap and plentiful enough to purchase regularly, providing subjects for more photographs.
