All Of This And Nothing

Shot Of The Day: April 24, 2017





QOTD:
A heavy rain, a holiday
A painting of the wall
A knife a fork and memories
A light to see it all
You didn’t leave me anything
That I can understand

Little Red Corvette
Baby, you’re much too fast

— Prince
[click here to view full size image]

Backstory: In 1983 I would sit on my second story porch – reclining in a hammock, a blender set up on a small table, next to a cassette player. I’d sip Pina Coladas and listen to 1999. Those were days – they disappeared into my rear view far too quickly. RIP Prince, thanks for the amazing music. — TAG

Locale: White Street, Key West (1983) – Stapleton Heights (2017).

Equipment: Nikon D5500 / AF-S DX Zoom-NIKKOR 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5G IF-ED
