Eric Burdon and the Animals sing their 1964 hit song The House of the Rising Sun. Who could forget this memorable tale of a life gone bad (spent in sin & misery). Turns out, people have been singing this song for a few hundred years, in one version or another, and the origin & author of the song are lost to history. Hmmm, it must tell a story that still resonates today! Mothers, tell your children, not to do what I have done!
Feeling guilty for my last post (see punishing strobe video below), I thought I would counter with a mellow sunrise (from yesterday) along the Sausalito (California) waterfront. San Francisco can be viewed in the distance. Lots of seagulls & a fishing boat indicate that the herring are still running. Peace.
Repeating patterns occur in a single frame matrix of mainly pavement textures. Can induce headaches, or spiritual revelations. Yes, I like this sort of thing.
