Of Gods and Rockers

By woolybill1
Actually it's probably a Roman-style goddess . . .
One of four elaborate heads adorning a recently re-painted iron lamp-post adjacent to a Newcastle guitar shop, with the other side of Dean Street reflected in the background. The window display only includes a single rocker but I needed the plural for my word-play Blush
No digital manipulation involved here, just a bit of burning-in.

Special thanks today to Ollie bliba , Nezih nonur , Sue SUE118 and Trevor TrevBatWCC for their generous User Awards on yesterday's offering.

Very well composed Bill. It's always what comes first, the idea or the find. Maybe a little of both.

Quite an artistic way of seeing things, Bill. Another super image. May sound too pedantic but may be because of the grimace of the god and the red colour and the way everything is combined brought up to my mind the title of a book on ancient Greek drama: The Eating of the Gods by Jan Kott.
"In The Eating of the Gods the distinguished Polish critic Jan Kott reexamines Greek tragedy from the modern perspective. As in his earlier acclaimed Shakespeare Our Contemporary, Kott provides startling insights and intuitive leaps which link our world to that of the ancient Greeks. The title refers to the Bacchae of Euripides, that tragedy of lust, revenge, murder, and "the joy of eating raw flesh" which Kott finds paradigmatic in its violence and bloodshed."

I am gobsmacked, Bill. This is tremendously well seen. I bow to your photographic eye and brain.
