today. 5.30 am blur. with a strange bird……!

This little bird looks a bit of a peach as picked up by the camera in the morning glow earlier. The tiny white feathered  bird was simply sitting there facing the sun, all on his(her) own. So just three bleary shots!  and then it flew away; no time for anything clearer or any more shots. It simply disappeared. I would love to identify him(her). I have never seen anything like him(her) round here before although it could be the visitor who fleetingly visited our bird bath a day or two ago.

passenger …. nothing compares

sung by Passenger. The Once & Stu Larsen

“Nothing Compares 2 U”

It’s been seven hours and fifteen days
Since u took your love away
I go out every night and sleep all day
Since u took your love away

Since u been gone I can do whatever I want
I can see whomever I choose
I can eat my dinner in a fancy restaurant
But nothing
I said nothing can take away these blues

`Cause nothing compares
Nothing compares 2 u

It’s been so lonely without u here
Like a bird without a song
Nothing can stop these lonely tears from falling
Tell me baby where did I go wrong

I could put my arms around every boy I see
But they’d only remind me of you
I went to the doctor and guess what he told me
Guess what he told me
He said, “Girl, you better try to have fun no matter what you do.”
But he’s a fool

`Cause nothing compares
Nothing compares 2 u

All the flowers that u planted, mama
In the back yard
All died when u went away
I know that living with u baby was sometimes hard
But I’m willing to give it another try

Nothing compares
Nothing compares 2 u
Nothing compares
Nothing compares 2 u
Nothing compares
Nothing compares 2 u

day ends

So where does the day end~
In the evening with the flying things
or in morning brown shadow?

Enveloped: A Bike

The entire street scene is really a reflection on a very dark shop window; it’s frame defined by the long brown column. The bike is enveloped between this column and a woman dressed pink.(and she in turn is enveloped by the black lamp post and the bike!)
