On the navigation bar to this site between Videos and Members is Photos. Outside of occasionally filling in for Kim and Kyla as an admin, and having to approve them for publication, I must admit I don't pay them much mind. There are a few people whose work I admire and gravitate to from time to time, but all in all, I take them for granted. This morning I paused for a moment on the front page, and watched the slide show. A lot of hats. And of course guitars. And I wondered just how many photos have been uploaded since the site went live...over 30,000. The first was the cover to the short-lived ND book-a-zine in late 2008 at the left here. I've always liked that shot.
Most of the pics are from bands looking for a little love, or from fans who've taken pictures at shows and festivals. Some of them are from professionals and others are ripped from other sites or publications. I imagine I could spend days going through and picking out the best of the best, but that seems like too much work. So I thought I'd just sort of stroll through the 1500 plus pages this morning, and randomly select some shots that might catch my attention. Might inspire you to take some time and wander through the galleries yourself, or add your own.
