When the bird has flown
Got no-one to call your own
Got no place to call your home
When the bird has flown.
– Nick Drake

The first one reminds me of a huge birdhouse. Did you intend that? Beautiful, as ever.

Not really, no, but now that you mention it…
Thanks a lot, glad you liked it.

Intriguing as always. I see captivity and freedom ~ both at once. I love the look of the sky in image #1

Yes, I think that was the idea behind these shots, but I don’t like to over analyze (yeah right!) and maybe I just thought they looked cool, LOL. Thanks, Marina.

Ahhh, it’s all about compromise isn’t it?

“Broke my heart to leave the city / I mean it broke what wasn’t broken in there already / Thought of all my great reasons for leaving / Now I can’t think of any / It’s true it was a hard time that I’ve come through / It’s made me thankful for the blues” (Magnolia Electric Co.)
And everythimng that happens happens at the side of the road. Tied to a trailer just to free our minds. Facing a fence just to get over it. Seeling the souls to the devil just to keep on running. Nick Drake to go along with these beauties of yours is just a killer combination, Jean-Pierre. Breaks a heart & puts it back together.
All the best & safe travels, Fritsch.

Oh yes, that’s so it brother! Always right there, on the side of the road where it all happens…
Thanks again for the sublime words, and for the encouragement, it brings such tremendous joy to hear them.

I love these blue-beige tones you use – so moody and dreamy. Lyrics from Nick Drake are always welcome.

That first one is very experimental in nature, but I’m glad you liked it! And yes, Drake is such an inspiration…

Sublime Nostalgia. (Love Nick Drake too.)

I’m overjoyed to hear that there’s so many Drake fans out there!
Thanks, Karen, glad you liked them.

Heavy stuff, JP – and very good indeed! The words say it all, and am I right in thinking that the top shows the caravan, while the bottom shot shows the view from the caravan? Adrian
