Memory lane was open today in Huntington Beach for two reasons.
One reason was I recently met at WPPI last week and am becoming good friends with a fantastic photographer on the East Coast. If you ever and I mean ever wondered if I had a “separated at birth” person out there on this planet, I would have to say with a resounding yessssss. Her name is Valerie Schooling and she works with a team of fantastic photographers at Charleston Wedding Photographers.
Our similarities are literally so freaky that other friends of mine at WPPI were asking us how long we’ve known each other & because we met at the end of the trip – we were saying; “like 2 days ago.” LOL!
So when she told me about how she named her car Dolores after Dolores O’Riordan from The Cranberries after I told her that I named my car; Rio after the song & album by Duran Duran, I about tripped out. Because just a few weeks ago I shared with you Linger with both Dolores O’Riordan from the Cranberries and Simon Le Bon from Duran as the West Coast Wednesday Videos Of The Week.
The other reason for memory lane is that back when The Cranberries came out, I was up in Portland shooting and working with various bands as a drummer. Along with enjoying some of the best beers, food, movies and clubbing in the Northwest. So I guess it seemed only fitting to share a Cranberries song with you for this week’s West Coast Wednesday Video Of The Week.
The song is Dreams by The Cranberries – which is one of those songs that I don’t seem to ever get tired of. Dolores’ ethereal voice is haunting and beautiful – reminiscent of Justine Suissa from Oceanlab; an absolutely amazing vocal trance group from London. Which I’m sure Valerie will disagree with as she favours; Berlin – but, IMO London is the most amazing and creative city in the world, but that’s just me. I love the culture, architecture, and history.
But before I present you with this week’s feature of my West Coast Wednesday Video Of The Week and you’re thinking… Hey – I’d really like to get to know this eclectic Orange County Wedding Photographer in Huntington Beach, California, feel free to Contact Me or send me an email direct at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also stay in touch with me in “real time” on Twitter, Facebook and my Facebook Fan Page too.
So without further ado, I give you Dreams by The Cranberries for this week’s West Coast Wednesday Video Of The Week. And, don’t just have an awesome West Coast Wednesday, but make it a positive one for someone else too – cheers!
