I have collected dozens and dozens of paperback and hardcover books since the 90s. Many of them in very good condition. Mostly they were stored away, collecting dust. Some of my favorites I have been repurchasing in Kindle format to read on my iPhone. Being short on physical storage space, I wanted to donate the physical books. The thought of throwing them in the trash nearly put me in a state of grief.
I was born just a few months before the passing of Led Zeppelin drummer John "Bonzo" Bonham in 1980. Still I grew up hearing the sounds of this legendary rock band on the radio. I've never heard them live, except for live albums like The Song Remains The Same or How The West Was Won. I was browsing Ticketmaster for Bay Area concerts and I discovered Zepparella, an all female Led Zeppelin cover band.
After compositing a set of fireworks photos together, I was struck by the notion of just how much color was there. Fireworks are pretty colorful and that's one reason why we love them. Why not turn that on its head. Break the rules. Fuck the King. Black & White? No, monochrome blue because I was freezing at the waterfront after the sun went down.
