Dancing With The Moonlit Knight



Northern Germany.
June 2011.


I was on my way home from a friend's birthday party when I stopped to take these pictures... I'd been listening to Genesis while driving along country roads with the windows down... it had been the first sunny day after a week of rain.

Yesterday evening the Big Man passed away. Never again will a saxophone be played so beautifully.


Goodnight.

It's funny how your fields and country roads in Germany look the same as the ones where I'm from in Virginia. Not so different.

I like to do this as well, stop anywhere and take a photo of the "moment". I particular like the trail of the clouds in the first photo pointing towards the centre of the image and giving it depth...a touch of "infinity"...DeeBee

Rachel: Indeed, you're right: This part of Germany has the same climate as Virginia... the summers are long and warm, the winters are long and cold. :-)

DeeBee: Thanks very much!

I often thought that parts of Europe looked like parts of the US, but then I'd see some house or building and the architecture of it would blow that idea away - thankfully - I really don't want to picture America when I'm in Europe!
Nice shots!

The rural parts of Europe do look a lot like some parts of the U.S. indeed. Fortunately, you're right about the architecture, too - over here, houses are built to last. You're not gonna find one house here that could be blown away by a storm.

yeah i know, my mum told me this mornin. it's so depressing, have listened to the e street band all day. it's so sad.. :(

I've been listening to them all day, too. I've also been wondering what's going to happen to the E Street Band... They can't just hire a new saxophone player.
If they're going to continue playing together, and I do hope they will, they should reinvent their sound... Probably rearrange the songs Clarence played saxophone on - it's worked before with the Sessions Band when they played acoustic versions of some classic Springsteen songs.

It's one of Genesis's greatest hits.
