Tumbler

Stairwell, Parking Garage, Charleston, SC  © Doug Hickok  All Rights Reserved


Oops... bumble, stumble, tumble,
Down the stairs I go,
Head over heels.
Hello 3rd floor.
Hello 2nd floor.
Hello Ground floor.
Whump!

Head spinning...
Stars swirling...
Seeing my world
Purple and bruised.
Ouch!

  12. A great image, Doug. It's giving me vertigo, though... Or is that High Anxiety? -- as in the Mel Brooks film of the same name!

  13. Vertiginous perspective and nice process in purple. Unusual and beautiful.
    Have a nice day.

  14. though it's monochrome, it leaves me with a very psychedelic feeling ... my head starts turning, i lose my focus, ... i'm reeling ... and falling .... what a nightmare! i shouldn't have read your words ... ;-)))

  15. Doug, this is really a good-feeling-foto. And the text - I was smiling a lot when I read it.
