Cloud catcher -

"A Gentle Slope"
manipulated digital photograph & digital drawing by Mick Mather
"... there is something in October
sets the gypsy blood astir,
we must rise and follow her;
when from every hill of flame,
she calls and calls
each vagabond by name ..."

It'll be here soon, Hélène. Tell Susu to come quick with her snow shovel!

You do the shoveling, Mick, I sit inside and keep me warm.

That sure looks like a cottage on the Alps!

Sure, sure, and when the shoveling is done you'll want me to keep you warm too! Pick some coal, chop some wood, make you soup ... in those Alps!

Dream a little dream, catching clouds and chasing rainbows.

Love the title of your piece and the poetry to go with it. I love the thin structural lines and the grey on greys.

I was really just playing around with a recently taken photograph when things began to take shape all by themselves ... I love it when that happens. :)

This is so peaceful and calm. And yet so empty. Beautiful.
