Winter of Discontent by DougNZ Winter of Discontent by DougNZ
Now is the winter of our discontent
Made glorious summer by this son of York;
And all the clouds that low'r'd upon our house
In the deep bosom of the ocean buried.


This was taken during the 'Winter of Discontent' in England in 1978 [link] so the sombre mood suits what was the mood of the country at that time.

I don't want to hurt your feelings Doug, but in 1978 I wasn't even an idea in my parents mind :P
The photo is great... I think it could be a wonderful cover for music album of a band which plays blues or jazz!

Today you decided to give me an heartattack !!
What's great inside this pic ? All is great. The little light-window at the end of the tunnel (I suppose it's a tunnel), the minimalism of the subject(s): a man and a supermarket trolley inside a total black composition, the position "out-of- center" of them (rule of third ;) ), what else ? My poor heart is exhaust so I stop here the comment to this other BEAUTIFUL photo !!

Looking to your last pics you submitted to TheStreetFactor, you gave me about an hour of real, strong enjoy.

Thank you D.

Riccardo
