Purple Rain -

"Far Afield With Storm Approaching"
digital collage by Mick Mather
For the last month my work has taken a slight turn as I continue working with a new filter. The key word here is, for sure, slight. There isn't a lot more to say beyond the mysterious reference to an old children's fable, The Three Little Pigs. Houses made of straw is the operative concept, although this is something in my own head as opposed to anything one should attempt to figure out from tonight's post. Forgive me for rushing off, I think I've just burned the hamburgers! :O

An intriquing post. I look forward to seeing what else is in your head! The purples here are fantastic.

Fingers crossed this will publish....

Hmmm, you're the second person to tell me that blogger is getting fussy these days. Sorry, and many thanks for the comment. As is often the case when I get a new filter, it gets used with a number of the old ones too, just for fun ... glad you like it.

the charm school dropout:
It's funny you say so, Sarah. I've been working with a lot of fashion images recently, but not this one. The fact that you see it that way is very interesting. :)

You're in a colorful music box for the moment, mellow yellow, purple rain. What next?

I did notice that I used another music title. Even so, "Mellow Yellow" was aural while "Purple Rain" was visual for me. "What's next", you ask? "They're Coming To Take Me Away, Ha Ha"! Get a note to Susu, I'll need her to smuggle some bourbon into the "White Room". :D

Did I hear someone mention bourbon street....

You're welcoming spring with these colours, I believe.

I've been messing around with fashion also! Put up a new blog, my umptieth, but this is a co-blog, and Elegia is also writing into it, as well many others.
We try to put fashion into some order, that is telling people that the only way to get happy is not to buy a bag costing 1000 euros(as many dollars), so we are introducing all kind of ghastly outfits we just adore.
It's fun and it's supposed to be humour:))
We've been a minor success, people seem to be in good humour nowadays.

If you're interested in Finnish fashion, pop in.

What? There's bourbon flowing in the street? Where's that box of straws I've been hiding all these years?

I'm interested in Finnish Women ... if that means Finnish Fashion too, well, alrightee then, I'm in.! That's a nice overcoat you're modeling, Susu. :D

Oh, that's not me, that's my friend Saara.
I don't have a dog, so I won't be needing an outfit for dog walking in rain and mud:)

Please, do try to find those straws!

No dog? Hmmm, then you can't be Sister Existence I guess; she has a dog, walks it too! Straws, straws! Now, where did I put those darned things! :D

Purple rain in her head. Looks a bit like Bill Clinton, I think...
