Mourning


Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

This one is actually creepier in long shot, and especially from behind, with those big holes in her back. Those shots are up at Flickr.

Bellefontaine, Ohio

Radio spot for Halloween

Donovan - Season of the Witch

Lou Rawls (yes that's right) - Season of the Witch

And this has nothing to do with Halloween, but I just got back from a great show and the thing that makes it even vaguely relevant here is that it was such a treat for the ears, and the eyes provided it. You see, I won my ticket to the show through a photography contest sponsored by the Columbus Association for the Performing Arts; and the fun of it is that I spent the show sitting directly under the subject of my winning shot.

So let me share a little something from the groups that performed:

Blind Boys of Alabama - Take My Hand

and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band (who really blew me away) - Bourbon Street Parade

cool, a fallen angel.I wonder how she lost her wings.

Karswell said...

Well, if everytime a bell rings an angel gets his wings, it's not impossible that an angel loses them whenever a bell ceases to be. Um, that is if you believe in angels. This one would look better with a pair of horns anyway.

Love the weathered texture and streaks in his sad, sad face.

I heard that Lou Rawls version of Season of the Witch a while back and was pleasantly surprised. You've got some great photos on your blog.

Dane said...

Floyd: hubris, no doubt.

Steve: don't you think everybody would look better with horns, though? :)

sailormom: thanks for coming by, and for your kind comment. I was surprised Lou even did a cover of that particular song, but yeah, it's not bad. It loses the autumnal feel of Donovan's, but it's not as odd as one might think.

Dane said...

Aw, thank you, Ally - very kind of you. I'm glad you liked Lou. :)

What a great shot...I really like the contrast of her melancholy expression with the bright blue sky behind her.

Actually, this angle reminds me of the last few seconds of the opening titles of "Angels in America"...did you watch closely to make sure she didn't move?

Dane said...

Oh, I see what you mean ... no, she must have waited till I turned my back. :)

Disclaimer:

Music is posted for a short time, and while I use it in part to (hopefully, though not always) go along with the theme of the photo, I also post it in hopes someone will give it a try and fall in love with it as I have. Perhaps they will then seek out more by the artist and buy more cds. That's how it works with me, anyway. If you like it, pick it up at the store; support the artists you love.
