Instagram is my jam! Until this past winter, I worked as my papaw’s daily care giver and we made many music videos for Instagram together. Sadly, he suffered a stroke late 2017 and moved into long term care, but you can still visit instagram to see those old videos and I’m still posting new ones solo.

I’m just now putting the finishing touches on my new website at mirandapenningtonmusic.com. I’m keeping my old domain, mirandapennington.com attached to the old site for a year.
The new platform and system I’m working with is a lot easier to use and offers a lot more features. I hope you like it. 🙂
I have been meaning to write this journal post for a month now and I’m just now getting around to it. My creative life, however, has not been suffering much as I’ve written three other songs and am working on a fourth. Two of the ones I’ve finished I really like and neither have been recorded yet. The third I posted to YouTube about a month ago, (“If I’m really Being Honest”,) and that one might never get polished because I think it might be a song mostly for my own self.
At any rate, that’s enough rambling about where I’m at creatively. Lets talk about this song, “Abstract.” This one came together so fast. Continue reading “Abstract – Notes on production and songwriting process”
I made a new song. I’m not 100% sure if I’m finished with it, but I’m feeling pretty happy with it for the time being. This one kind of made itself, for the most part. I just showed up and did the work the song told me to do. 😉
More to come later…
Testing out my new (old) Minolta 28-70 2.8. I’m not too sure if I like it though. I recently lost my very similar Tamron 28-75 2.8 and wanted to try something different when I replaced it because though the Tammy was a very good lens in many respects, I was also kind of bored with it compared to my vintage lenses. This Minolta lens was a high end pro lens released in 1993 and manufactured until sometime in the early 2000s, so I suppose that’s technically vintage but it’s still the youngest lens in my small but growing collection.
