The silver slug

By mrswoolybill
The silver slug, who living had no note,
When death approached, unlocked her silent throat;
Leaning her breast against the reedy shore,
Thus sang her first and last, and sang no more...


With apologies to Orlando Gibbons and his swan; Gateshead's Sage music centre is locally known as the silver slug.
Thanks for looking,
Moira

Love it, especially the top part that looks like it's slowly disintegrating and floating off into... somewhere.

Orlando Gibbon's verse - albeit 'modified' - and shimmering reflections of glittering Gateshead; what could be better? SmileSmileSmile A cracking image Moira!

Excellent Moira, Very nicely captured.
Looks great downside up as well.
Going for a lie down now, trying to stand on my head has made
me go all giddy and discombobulated. SmileSmile
