You are so kind girl, and for that I am very grateful.
(My PC keyboard might think otherwise from all that abuse of wearing its keys down by those recent typing sprees.)


I promise you that Iíll keep it hort (Iím knackered tonight, and thatís a pretty good thing).

One word that popped into my mind as I opened up your imageÖ.
No, actually two words Ö
Alfred Hitchcock


Yea, you read right, I was mentioning that well known legend of cinematography there, Alfred Hitchcock!

His trademark style and ďartĒ is to portrait and make use of strange angles, wired POVís of which the camera was mostly somewhere above like a fly on the wall perspective. Mirrors and windows where used to shock the audience by showing the present buy still hidden threat in its reflections.
It is a stunning and utterly simple technique, but works like a charm!
The reflection of the shiny and ridiculously sharp kitchen knife in the steam covered bathroom mirror, which is unseen to the eyes of the underpaid supporting actor, humming a cheerful little tune to himself while he is very carefully combing his just washed, and slowly showing of grey in his otherwise black middle aged hairline. The whole audience already figured out by now that that poor sod is about to get mulched and is about to die a very bloody, painful and gruesome death when that knife slits into his only just shaven throat. A fountain of red blood sprays all across the bathroom, making sure, as it leeks gallons of its sticky substance, to not miss any wall or surface in that tiny but surprisingly clutter free bathroom,Öand that all for the entertainment of the on watchers in the dark and gloomy cinema.
Oh, just love those moments, do we?

Donít get me wrong here, and please donít try to re-enact that above scene (itís pretty messy and is only my vivid imagination anyway) but your image has this kind of haunting qualities that Alfred Hitchcock mastered so very well. Bless his cotton socks!
Another priceless picture that you uploaded here for us.

I think itís time for bed for me
By the wind of inspiration
