Welcome to my blog! I created this site in 2008 to provide a place for showcasing my photos and to provide information or links helpful to other photographers. As time has passed, I've added music videos and information as well. I will occasionally make comments, but will not preach or keep anyone from making comments of their own. Everyone is entitled to an opinion and I love the feedback! My goal is to make this website a regular destination for anyone who loves photography and music and wants to see what I've been up to.

I discovered a beautiful song called "Emmanuel" and linked it to this blog in an earlier post.  That's when I also discovered Lucia Micarelli, a master violinist who was traveling with Josh Groban on his concert tour. She performed and recorded the song with trumpeter Chris Botti. 

I remembered the song when I was trying to decide what music to use for a slide show of my landscape photos. Since it's copyrighted, I needed to get permission to use it and needed the name of the composer as well. In that search for information, I found that a Frenchman named Michel Colombier composed it.  I decided to use the version with Lucia Micarelli and Chris Botti as background music to my slide show mainly because it's more dramatic and a longer version.

YouTube has several different artists performing Emmanuel, including guitarist Antonio Onorato and harmonicas Toots Thielemans.  Here's the link to Onorato's version for your enjoyment :  http://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=Michel+Colombier%2Fyoutube%2FEmmanuel&qs=n&form=QBVR&pq=michel+colombier%2Fyoutube%2Femmanuel&sc=0-0&sp=-1&sk=#view=detail&mid=113115303FD9F3018D31113115303FD9F3018D31
