I am not sure how or when, but posting on this blog has become my most accurate platform for creative expression. It's so inspiring to browse through other blogs and every comment is very appreciated!

Tony from United Kingdom

Excellent photograph. I love the colouring and the empty space, with the subject matter at the bottom of the frame. It puts the lorry into context.

@Tony: Yes, thanks! Everything else fades into the abyss

Gee, what a contrast in the weather ! This has a rainy feel to it and the lyrics of the song are genius, it helps create that perfect moodiness here that I love, it's expressive. and the image is just great !
