A melancholy one, this pic.

I wonder if the dark, b&w treatment makes it so. Here's a peek at the original (thanks to John Mora).

When I saw this one I wondered if John Mora had been the inspiration and from your above comment I see the connection-- love it.

John has surely been an inspiration to me in more than just the two of his works I've manipulated further at this point. There's so much more that I could be doing but, too much of a good thing and all that. Neither do I want to abuse the blanket-permission I've received to press forward with the images that thrill me.

Umm, I really enjoy the depth and darkness of this one Mick. Great combination with the lyrics.

Leslie Avon Miller:
Thank you, Leslie. The song was on my mind as I worked on it ... a no brainer considering where John takes so many of his marvelous photographs.

Mick, thank you for the compliments, you are most kind - I like how you have transformed a BB into an MM.

Unlike Cecilia, you are not shaking my confidence daily.

My best.

Yes, that darned 'Celia! Thanks again, John.

Nice to see this collaboration of sorts with John. Funny to read that because I thought it looked a little John Mora! I like the soft hues you used, quite phantom like!

I seem to be back in a dark, fuzzy, hazy and phantom-like mode these days.
