Day 162 – The Last Wave

Words are only painted fire; a look is the fire itself. – Mark Twain

I’ve been having lots of fun manipulating my photographs and changing their perspectives! This includes today’s mystery “what is it?!?” picture. Can you tell? Do you know?

What Is It?!?

What Was That?!? Yesterday’s Picture (Day 161)

Yesterday’s photograph was one I took many, many months ago when I first started this blog; a new perspective and some color tweaking produced a different look. And many guesses it generated!

Was it a vinyl record (LP)? No, but it looked like that! Was it wood? Not wood. It looked like paint marks left by a brush. But it wasn’t a brush. How about stained glass? Not that either. Blue glazed ceramic vase? No. “That looks like an old record. An upside down distance shot of a wagon train crossing the tundra. An interesting shot of Saturn’s rings.” None of the above. The arm of an old Adirondack chair? Nope. Varnish streaks in an old table? Nope. Lake water, dusk? Not that either. Is it hair? It is not hair.

So what was it?!? It’s the inside of a metal mixing bowl. 😉

And we have another story by Terry. 🙂

The Last Wave

They didn’t hear the warnings so they never knew what hit them.
They had been together for nearly four years and living by the sea was something they had to do.
Their sanity depended on it.
They both found it hard to hold down a job and consequently their existence was tenuous.
They didn’t care; they had each other. When things got bad and the voices were loud they would look out for each other until it passed; and it always passed, even though, at times it seemed like it might not.
They were lying in each other’s arms when the wave hit; washed away, never to be found.
Apart from a few friends there was no one to mourn their passing. They were just two more names on a frighteningly long list.
