Thanks, Alf. I walked out the door to go to work last week, saw the sky, and had to duck back in to get a camera.
Or maybe a full skyscape shot?
In any case I love the simplicity, almost abstract in it's nature.
Oh I did enjoy the link to "Because" too, a welcome interlude and a favourite old Beatles track, brilliant Harpsichord and Harmonies.
Nice one Mate!
That's it. Thanks. Now I can sleep.
There's a Beatles' song bouncing around in my head when I look at this photo, but I can't quite find the words.
Thanks, Stephen. You are absolutely right, and it is noted above at the outset. The song ("Because") inspired the title, but the lyrics "because the sky is blue" are buried further along in the song:
Little Angels... Lannie This reminds me of little angels flying carefree across the sky looking down upon us and smiling. Thanks for this lovely image that allows my mind to think such wonderful thoughts. These words were just created by my thoughts... "Blue is the road they travel, high above my thought filled head - looking down upon me - whispering of forever and forgiveness. They fly to remind me of what's beyond my world - their arms reach out to guide me of my future pathway in the sky". This image gives me such comfort. Thanks for this gift Lannie! deb
Thanks, Deb. They were nice little cirrus clouds for me, but I am glad that you can see more.
Here is another version of "Because" as heard in the soundtrack for American Beauty:
Because the Sky Is Blue--Test Shot (hand-held) of Sony NEX-3 I think of it as half of a landscape shot. I was standing in my front yard. . . .
