Giving titles. Even (or because of) my habit of using song titles, it can be really hard.

Sometimes it takes me as long as working on the image. Here I had three of them to choose, none of them a clear winner.

In the end I decided for the one that gave me a Song of the Day. Actually I would have rather taken this one: a damaged bicycle with an infinitely twisted wheel, but really, among 34000 songs, there is exactly not a single one called “Infinity”.

Or the other one. I would have expected “Obscure” (at least that’s what I read: “Obskur”) to be a word that occurs at least once in 34000 song titles. Nothing.

Of course “Blue” was the cheap way out. 1557 songs, most of them Blues 🙂

The Song of the Day is “Perfect Blue Buildings” from the 1993 Counting Crows album “August and Everything After”. Hear it on YouTube.

  1. missing the green apple sea 🙂

    in stead i find a perfect sand colored walking zone
    besides a perfect blue building
    it’s a special color combination i always admire
    blue and sand
    but where can one find such in a building and sidewalk next to each other

    have a nice day, andreas 🙂

  2. You have a weird method of selecting your picture of the day… 🙂

    Anyway, I really like the very-much-off-center strong diagonal tha builds that small triangle of opposite color. The end of that line, however, seems to look a bit fuzzy around the edges, so to say. I really can’t make out what the graffiti is supposed to say – but the shot has an almost Japanese feeling to it. Not like an original ink drawing, more like a modern reflection of an ink drawing. Nice…

  3. You gotta have a method huh? I mean, really, it’s not always easy to find one title a day. Thanks 🙂

  4. How about “Let’s Get Twisted”?

    This could apply to the bicycle’s twisted rear wheel – I like this image very much.
