Award Shortlist   

In the middle of the road of my life I awoke in a dark wood where the true way was wholly lost

By Diana
So Nick (RipRap) created an image in a series of images with a Dante quote that touched a nerve with me, so in passing I was telling one of my artist pals about it, so he went down to Southsea Beach and painted the quote on a load of stones for touched I am...he photographed them and sent them to me (donít know what he used to shoot them, cos the images are not that great, but thatís not the point) so I made a little comp of them, its rubbish of course Ďcos I done it on my little lap top and I donít do Photoshop that well but...

... this is an image for Nick (Rip Rap) and for anyone else who is touched by the quote!
I am going down the beach with him later, (the artist) in the dark to light paint them, if they are still there, some will be washed out to sea of course, but together we will write on some more, in the dark and shoot them...and let the sea wash the words away with it into the deep...under the moon of course ....
Hope the quote touches you too even if the comp is crap.

Shore leave for the lost of mood

Nice bit of composing there, Diana. Well done. And must be the longest ever title on EPZ!

thanks, the real image will be forthcoming when I shoot it at night, so I might just add that to the title ...blah blah blah -at night !
make it even longer ......Wink

this was just to show Nick really, but it needs to be shot in the dark, after all thats what its about....that dark place !
