Lucida

Shot Of The Day: October 9, 2017





QOTD:
Enclosed in a shrine
Locked away inside my mind
I walk in the darkness and neon lights
Delirium will take me away

Backstory: This gate mural (part of the 100 Gates project) reminds me of Lucida Mansi. According to Wikipedia, “Lucida, the daughter of Lucchese nobles, was said to be very beautiful and very vain. She was so cruel and concerned with the pleasures of the flesh that she killed her husband in order to be free to enjoy her many lovers. The legend states that she killed her lovers after sleeping with them by throwing them down a ditch covered in sharp blades.” This image depicts a figure that struck me as a kind of Flying Dutchman harbinger of doom. Hence Lucida, who had a very beautiful garden, very lush and green.

Locale: Stapleton or perhaps Lucca, Italia – the art work is by Terry Lee Chandler, aka #zionlineal, as part of the #100GatesProject.

Equipment: Nikon D5500 / Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR (top), LG G5 (bottom)
