“City” inspired

Now I’m not usually one for wildlife themes, but I could get inspired to design an entire room around one of these Nick Brandt photos.

Clark and I are in two weddings this weekend in two different cities in two different states with our two dear children in tow….. Lord have mercy. We were preparing the music for one of them last night when we came across some of these Brandt slides set to the Sufjan Stevens’ version of Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing on YouTube. Perhaps it is a bit unusual to pair wildlife photography with an 18th century hymn, but that is our Sufjan… unusual. We were curious and stumbled on this re-edited version of the ” Stranger in Moscow” video directed by Nick Brandt. He removes Michael Jackson from the footage and follows the story line of the other characters set to Gorecki’s Symphony No. 3. Beautiful. I encourage you to spend five minutes with this and become inspired today.
