January 8, 2007 HDR Thriller (slip)

Boat Row. Uploaded into Flickr by worldwidewandering. CLick on pic to see it in Flickr.

Sat down to blog tonight, and in listening to The Slip's Eisenhower CD (a really super CD by the way) I suddenly knew what to use as a search word. This pic came up and stopped me in my tracks. Pretty darn neat, this one (TERRIFIC IN LARGE ON BLACK). Takes me right back to my youth, and fishing with my father in Southport, NC. He painted scenes like this in oils. I miss him. And now I'll remember him fondly whenever I listen to The Slip. That's pretty neat, too.

From The Slip's
If One Of Us Should Fall
I will always carry
the words of your prediction with me
Even though they harbour
some grave obscurity
They haunt me like some willows do

And nothing has revealed itself to me
The half of the world that I can see
is just a memory

And I will
be here
to respond
so clear
to that word, that sound,
that I have found
in you, in me, in us....
