Miles from nowhere

"Miles from nowhere
I guess I'll take my time
Oh yeah, to reach there ...

Miles from nowhere
Not a soul in sight
Oh yeah, but it's alright"

Rick great to see a post from you, thanks for the wonderful comments on my blog.

Your photo here immediately reminded me of... here's the lyrics, I'm sure you'll recognize this song.

"Help, I'm stepping into the Twilight Zone
The place is a mad-house, feels like being cloned
My beacon's been moved under moon and star
Where am I to go now that I've gone too far"

Here's the song if you can get it to download.

And a wonderful Friday to you as well! :-) Have a great weekend.

This photo is like from an old film
I agree that the lyrics from the old Cat Stevens song are matching!
Wishes for a good weekend!

Soraia Brito said...

He was tired, he was always running :p
Thank you for the comments!

This photo is cool, I like it :D

Elizabeth Grimes said...

You always come up with a great soundtrack to go with your photos. You should add a player widget to your blog. :)

Leslie said...

that album was (and still is) one of my all-time favorites. (fave song is "morning has broken")

imac said...

Bet you enjoyed changing this shot into a B/W negative my friend, I know I did with some of mine.

Top shot Rick.

Fábio Martins said...

An interesting idea! You don't like this photo with the natural colors?
I prefer, or in b&w


Saz said...

What an amazing photo Rick! The song you've put with it is certainly well matched too!

Betty Manousos@ Cut and Dry said...

hi Rick,
brilliant B&W!

well done :)
those lyrics match perfectly with the photo.

have a great long weekend!

Evanir said...

Viva a vida com muito amor.
Mate saudades,enquanto é tempo.
Peça perdão ,mesmo que seja você o ofendido.
Recupere o tempo perdido ,procurando ser feliz nas coisas de Deus.
Faça um carinho,alegrando alguém que esta triste.
A todo instante,fale uma palavra especial para
quem necessita ouvir.
Com seu amor podera fazer mudanças em muitas vidas.
Creia você pode não mudar tudo nesse Mundo.
Mais poderá fezer no coração de muitos.
A morada de Deus.
Um Domingo na paz e na luz de Jesus.
Bjs no coração.

The picture and the words are in complete harmony, Rick ;)



BlueShell said...

I like it here....
Thank you...


perfect photo

Here I Am/Carrie said...

A perfect combination of words and photo. I see you are having a bit of fun. Have a wonderful week.

lisa said...

Just beautiful Rick!
It looks like IR (?)

teca said...

Loved, honey!

The link's music, the beautiful image and the highlighted verses from the music.
You're special! :))
Beijos and warm hug.

Jeanne Klaver said...

Perfect visual for Cat! Love the perspective. It's so...surreal...

Rick said...

Thank you Dawn ! Glad you enjoyed the song.

Thanks, Laura !

Bedankt, Riet. (I'm sure you remembered that song too !).

Merci, Marty ! Yes, the road is long and sometimes negative, but sometimes negative can also have its positives ! I wish you a wonderful weekend, with positive bisous !

Rick said...

Thanks, Darlene, and thanks for the link to the song - I can see how that reminded you. My internet saga continues - tough to tell if there's progress. I'm trying to get visits in when the connection works reasonably well - 'see' you soon ! In the meantime, hope your weekend is going well.

Hi Monika - thank you. It's nice to play with photos to see another view of them. Glad you liked the song. Have a great weekend !

Obrigado, Soraia !

Thank you, Elizabeth. Sometimes viewing a certain shot triggers a song (and sometimes vice versa !).

Rick said...

Yes, one of mine too, Leslie (and love THAT song too !).

Thanks, Stewart - I find it fun to play around with some shots to see how it would look with a different treatment - like seeing the world from another perspective.

Thank you Fábio. Yes, I liked the original too, but thought I'd experiment a little for a different effect. I think it adds to the sense of being 'miles from nowhere'.

Thank you, Saz ! That whole album is a favourite of mine. Hope you're enjoying a lovely weekend.

Rick said...

Thank you very much Betty ! That song (and album) - a blast from the past - glad you enjoyed it). Have a great weekend !

Very lovely words, Evanir - thank you for your visit and nice comments. I wish you a peaceful weekend !

Thank you, Joseph ! I hope you're doing well. I shall be over for a visit soon.

Obrigado, BlueShell !

Rick said...

Thanks for visiting, and your nice comment, Dé !

Thank you, Carrie, and yes I was ;-)

Thanks, Lisa (no - negative and b&w).

Obrigado, teca ! The song struck me as I played with the image. Hugs and beijos, and thank you for your visits and nice words. A wonderful week to you, teca !

Rick said...

Thank you, Jeanne ! Nice to hear from you again. (hopefully my internet cooperates tonight so I can come for a visit).
