This last Tuesday night was a full moon. The full moon is perfect for night photography. Ever since I saw lostamerica.com I have wanted to do some long exposure times by moon light. Here is a shot of an old peach packing truck that was abandon in a gully by my cousin Adam's old house. Who knows how long this truck had been there. This shot was taken in the dark. It looks like daytime because I (we) held the shutter open for about 40 seconds. I took a nikon sb 800 and blew of a few flashes inside the cab and under the chassis While my cousin carefully held his finger on the shutter button of my Nikon D-50. Ghetto photography but fun none the less! I got bitten some type of bug... about 10 times... I hate to think of what it might have been. I felt sick for a few days but now I am fine and the bites have gone away...And hey... I got this cool pic of that old truck! Photo: Kevin Decker and Adam Wolfe. Photo ©Kevin Decker 2007

Autumns Chase had a meeting last night. For ruffly 8 months we have enjoyed a relatively relaxed approach to the band. Now it has reached that point where everyone is either wanting to quit or get serious. I enjoy playing in Autumns Chase. I have more than my share of other musical projects going on and I have to turn down offers weekly. So, going into the meeting I was to be happy either way. Everyone seems to want to take Autumns Chase to the next level. Cool! It will be interesting to see what this great group of guys accomplishes together. You can check out older stuff from Autumns Chase at myspace.com/autumnschase We should have some new stuff up in a week or two.

There is no substitute for a Gibson Les Paul Standard! A Les paul custom, classic or studio will simply not do. Here is a shot of my two lp standards. The black is a '98 and the Honey Burst is a 2001. They are not vintage but they still do it for me. The black has PRS Dragon 1 pick-ups. I like the dragon 1's but I would trade them for a set of PAF pro's in a heart beat. The honey burst has Alnico 498 and 490T's. I dig these pickups! They are not as hot as the burst bucker pros that come with the new lp's but I like the tone better. There is nothing like a Les Paul through a Marshall JCM 900 on eleven. I am a Rocker at heart!
