Fade out

By MediumSizeUnavailable
Rows of houses, all bearing down on me
I can feel their blue hands touching me
All these things into position
All these things we'll one day swallow whole

And fade out again and fade out

This machine will, will not communicate
These thoughts and the strain I am under
Be a world child, form a circle
Before we all go under

And fade out again and fade out again

Cracked eggs, dead birds
Scream as they fight for life
I can feel death, can see its beady eyes
All these things into position
All these things we'll one day swallow whole

And fade out again and fade out again

Immerse your soul in love
Immerse your soul in love

Street Spirit (fade out) by Radiohead

Probably best seen large, on black. Sorry about the banding. Noticed it too late Blush

It is a shame about the banding but this is a lovely soft, gentle image, I would have got rid of the logo on her hat though just to make it cleaner to the eye.

Honestly I couldn't care less about the banding: this is simply a beautiful photograph. The downcast gaze, the angle of the head, express a lot of the helplessness that we all feel at the moment; the sun may be shining for the future but there is no joy, no exuberance, in the present.
Cheer up!

fair enough point about the logo Janet. Also gives a bit too much the impression it's about fashion, which it's not. it detracts from what I intended to show.

Banding on my screen only seen vaguely...hardly an issue unless you want to niggle about something.

I can understand the discussion about the logo. It does attract attention, whereas if it had not been there we would not have wanted to see one. Which implies that it is not the main subject of the image.... as we all can see.

However for young people, and at the risk of me showing my age, logo's are part of their identity. Note that it is placed central on her forehead with the hat folded in such a way that you cannot not see the logo. Given that it is important for her the logo should stay.
as a whole it is a stunning portrait, with great toning and mood.
i like that one strain of hair that is drifting in the sunlight. (I mean the photographer could have removed it but chose not to.. great..)

Cheers Robert, and Leonid (also for the UA Smile ). the photos were just taken during a walk Robert. Quite unprepared, quick shots without paying much attention to details I would normally pay a little more attention to.
