no strange fruit but...

By estonian    
walking our guest dog this afternoon just around the corner from our road along the golf course in Woodford...
Epping Forest it is but brought to mind Billie Holiday's wondrous rendition of Abel Meeropol's classic...
perhaps more appropriate today than at the time this was written as we all should have learned lessons from the past but things are getting worse for more and more people...
sombre note but there it is...

I like your interpretation of the scene in your main image, really rich use of colour to go with your thoughts.

Very sombre indeed Richard, given what the "Strange Fruit" actually was.
A different interpretation of "Saturday Shadows" but very interesting imagery.
Nice work.
