Wish you were here

Panasonic DMC-LX3
So, so you think you can tell Heaven from Hell,
blue skies from pain.
Can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell? (Pink Floyd)

One of my fave Pink Floyd songs. I suppose it has nothing to do with the image… but I thought it would make a great title. In the meantime, Rob is still hibernating in the sunshine of his mind.

I think the reason the image works for me is the apparent contrast between the ominous clouds and the serene water.  In hindsight, I’m reminded of Rembrandt’s Jesus Calms the Storm… heh not that my art is in the same league… but in the way the approach was taken… “do you think you can tell, heaven from hell…
