Illustration Friday: Excess -

"Jamaica on Sunday"
digital collage by Mick Mather
In addition to being my contribution to this week's Illustration Friday - the theme is excess - the image is also something NEW from The Papers Series. It's a collage of some of the news items that appeared during hurricane season this year. As I was looking at it again I thought, what better sums up the idea of excess than the sight of your car floating down the street. Yup, excess wind, excess rain and excess destruction!

Some things are just too much.

Kind of cool this pic, plain and yet tells so much. Effective!

Thanks, Susu. I've been right at the bottom of the well much of this past week and I wasn't really sure about this one. Your words are always a comfort to me. :)

Si it's you down here, Mick...yes, I know the feeling.

But up we go, some day?

There is no doubt, up we go someday. Pure physics provides the ruling: for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.

I don't suppose you have a lock on below sea level after our disaster in New Orleans when a hurricane ruined the levees and the floods occurred. Reclaiming land that way is always a great risk.

LOL @ no swimming cars. I saw the photograph you posted yesterday - or was it early today? - very stormy and gray for sure.
