Lonely Cliffs and Waterfalls by catch---22 Lonely Cliffs and Waterfalls by catch---22
Lonely cliffs and waterfalls,
If no one sees me, I'm not here at all.
You could be the one to liberate me from the sun.
So please, give the moon to me.

And so I thank you dearly
For letting me see clearly.
Open up, she said
Be you, be true...

I don't have much to write as far as improvements go, but I did want to write a critique as I absolutely love this photo. I loved watching the waterfalls of CO in the spring and love seeing great photos of them. I enjoy how you caught the misty-ness and flow of the waterfall itself in contrast to the sharpness of the rock its pouring over. I suppose if I had to say one thing I wished was there I would like to see a bit higher on the waterfall. At the top it looks like it has branches of the water that are coming together which is an impressive sight, but perhaps that's just because I always want to know what's just around the corner or outside the frame, and perhaps you have those photos as I just stumbled on this and wanted to say more. I think it's a fabulous photo and it really brings me back to wandering CO in the springtime. I think the contrast and the overall composition are great. To me it's subtle and breathtaking, it makes me feel what I felt when actually living in Colorado and seeing this in person. Good work!

For some reason, it looks far and close all at once
unreachable, and yet at the tips of one's fingers.

Outstanding work, Dennis. :blackrose:

Tickets To Water Falls


I bought you tickets for the waterfalls
and you poured away all the change
Trained your bicycle to dance
told it tales of window boxes and people with locks
While you filed away the time
and lost the place in the river

Couldn't do anything about the days
But I helped with some of the nights
You worked my blisters to the bone
playing songs of tiny men and bridges in wine
While you led the time astray
and lost your head in the rainbow

You never saw anything glittering
but you had to melt it down
I made your rivers all run dry
soaked them up with train timetables and carpets of lies
And I listened to your smile
and found my place in the morning

~ jack bruce from songs for a tailor

In tribute to Jeannie Franklyn ("Genie the Tailor"), a clothing designer who designed wardrobes for Cream and was also the girlfriend of Fairport Convention guitarist Richard Thompson (and, according to Bruce's 2010 biography Composing Himself, an ex-lover of Bruce's).

In 1969, Franklyn wrote Bruce a letter requesting that he "sing some high notes for me," a letter that reached him on May 14, 1969, the day she was killed in a motor vehicle accident in Fairport Convention's touring van. Franklyn died—and Bruce received the letter from her—on his 26th birthday.

ric Clapton may have been "God," but many feel Jack Bruce was the true heart and soul of Cream, widely held to be rock's first supergroup and power trio. John Symon Asher Bruce, a jazz bassist since the 1950s, went to the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama, but left when asked to stop playing jazz (his axe at school was the cello). After stints in Alex Korner's Blues Incorporated and its splinter group the Graham Bond Organisation, where Bruce met his future Cream bandmate Ginger Baker and during which time he switched from standup to electric bass, Bruce landed in John Mayall's Bluesbreakers, featuring the other third of Cream, Eric Clapton. His tenure didn't last long, however, as he went on to replace Mike Vickers in Manfred Mann--Mayall chalks this up entirely to the Manfreds' higher likelihood of commercial success. In 1966, however, Bruce reunited with Clapton and Baker in Cream, where he was the principal songwriter and lead vocalist. The group didn't last long, but two years were all they needed to produce such classics as "Sunshine of Your Love," "I Feel Free," "White Room," and "N.S.U." Since 1968, Bruce has kept active, releasing numerous albums as a solo act; as part of Lifetime and West, Bruce & Lang; and in collaborations with Robin Trower and--for the third time--Ginger Baker. Bruce toured as part of Ringo Starr's All-Star Band in 2000 with Peter Frampton, and played a series of reunion concerts with Cream at London's Royal Albert Hall in 2005. He nearly died in 2003 after being diagnosed with liver cancer and receiving a transplant, but has since recovered.

"Gloom, despair and agony on me-e!
Deep dark depression, excessive misery-y!
If it weren't for bad luck I'd have no luck at all!
Gloom, despair and agony on me-e-e!"

Buck and his life-long friend and co-guitarist, fiddler and Buckaroo, Don Rich, were the Mick and Keith of Country Music (I mean in the sense of the tight musical partnership not in decadence). I’m sure Gram Parsons, of the Flying Burrito Brothers and the Byrds, who introduced Mick and Keith to Country Music, got the idea of wearing flamboyant Nudie Suits from his hero Buck Owens.
