1053 – Proud Mary

As I always say: some days are better than others. Yesterday was particularly good.

I post no more than three images, because I am one day behind, but I have tagged three more as TODO, meaning they will very likely turn up on some meager day.

Today I have two half/half compositions for you. One, the torn advertising on a lamp mast, is obviously a straight photography, the other, the Image of the Day, is as well, although in that case you simply have to believe me πŸ™‚

There was a lot of glass involved, I was standing in the entrance of a shop, the woman is an advertising poster behind glass, the dark edge in the center is where two sheets of glass meet. I can’t remember the exact configuration. In any case, this is the same shop that brought us “362 – Fashion Victim“.

Along with the third image, the furniture on a balcony, these could all be from my SoFoBoMo book “Urban Dreams II”. Obviously I am not yet done with that series πŸ™‚

The Song of the Day is “Proud Mary” by Tina Turner. In March, when I used “River Deep Mountain High” as a Song of the Day, I bought Tina Turner’s 3 CD “Platinum Collection”. That’s what I’ve linked to. See a fantastic live performance on YouTube.

1004 – Sick ‘n’ Tired

OK, here’s the missing images of Monday, and then I’ll only have to make one for today and post it πŸ™‚

Sorry for the inconsistent posting, but yesterday I was still sick, tired and completely unmotivated. We would have had tickets for another concert in Graz, but due to my condition, we skipped that.

The image with the tractor was taken from out of the window of my study, in the morning, when I saw that the wonderful flowers were brutally murdered.

The second image is from the same window, late in the afternoon. I liked what the shadows and the clouds did.

Actually I really love these images from my study. It’s always the same landscape, but light, clouds and perspective change enough to make it interesting over and again. Who knows, I may end up with a book of those πŸ™‚

The Image of the Day was taken later. The sun had gone down, I tried to sleep a little on a camping bed on the balcony, and suddenly I felt the urge to get the camera and try to make some images from my perspective. Over the years I’ve learned to always follow such impulses, and so I did. Thus: never go to sleep without your camera πŸ™‚

The Song of the Day is “Sick ‘n’ Tired” from the 2002 Ms. Dynamite album “A Little Deeper”. Hear it on YouTube.
