Illustration Friday: Foggy -

"Foggy"
digital collage by Mick Mather
There are two old doo wop songs that I was humming while working on this piece. The more popular, "Silhouettes", recorded by a huge number of recording artists, such as The Rays and Herman's Hermits, takes the perspective of one on the outside looking in at lost love, as shown here. The lesser known but equally popular hit, "Silhouette", takes the opposite position of someone looking out as his lost love passes by. In both cases, the memories are ever present, even if a bit foggy, and thus suited to this theme at Illustration Friday.

We all have some of those memories. I had a hard time choosing a song for my post.
I like the feel of this one, Mick.
I thought you'd do one about a "drinking fog!"

ROFLMAO! The drinking fog comes after the wistful memories and the unrequited love have turned sour! Wait a minute! That was last week! :D

I like this, it's soft and cuddly.

The song that came into my mind when I saw the word foggy, was the old "a foggy day, in London town, it had me low, it had me down" sung by Fred Astaire among others.
