ArtSparker Challenge #3

I've enjoyed other people's responses to ArtSparker's Challenges - so I thought I ought to have a go myself...

Dominic, that's so simple and so brilliant! The expressions on the faces are priceless put into this context.

And how very Copenhagen.

ArtSparker said...

Deep stuff - I am glad you could join this time.

The Weaver of Grass said...

Very good. I would love to join but I think the computer skill needed to do that is way beyond me.

Coffee Messiah said...

I don't understand, this will never happen, some people keep telling us

and Not Even A Paddle Between Them!

Susan at Stony River said...

That is too good! We're flooded everywhere here in the west of Ireland, so maybe I shouldn't like it *quite* so much LOL... but after the recent climate summit, I love t!

Rachel Fox said...

I'm not playing this game yet. Excellent work from you though!

Titus: Thank you. They are, aren't they?

ArtSparker: Can't wait for the next one.

WG: You can always print out the picture, do it the old-fashioned way, and scan the results, like I assumeBirdwoman does.

Coffee Messiah: Thank you. Like your Thomas Merton quote, by the way.

Tony: I think you rightly deduced their location :)

Susan: We try to be nothing if not topical :)

RF: (a) And whyever not? (b) Thank you!

Poetikat said...

Very good, Dominic. Now that I know what this is all about, I just may have to jump on the bandwagon.

Elisabeth said...

I'm new to your blog. I find this a brilliant piece of work, like a visual haiku, layered and deeply meaningful. Like anything that reminds us of climate change it's scary.

Dominic Rivron said...

Poetikat: Yes, do!

Elisabeth: Hi, there. Thank you. Pleased you like it.

Genius! And what's more, so relevant to what's happening in Copenhagen now.

Thanks for your comment on my Sunday post. I agree 100% and it's not only the English who indulge in the same peccadillo of adopting writers of other nationalities - though English-speakers, too - in their 'Best of...' lists, but also undergraduate students. When I was in fourth year of my degree in English, I had to do a dissertation on a piece of work by an English writer for my literature course. The author I chose? Oscar Wilde. Neither my lecturer, nor her companions on the examination board noticed the error and I got maximum points. :-)

Great post. Many thanks.

Good choice Dominic and the unflustered look on the sinking people only adds to the surreal hilarity.

Dominic Rivron said...

Cuban in London: Thanks. Great story. I have several friends who'll think that's hilarious.

TFE: Thanks for the comment. I'm off to look for a snow widget...

I think there's something wrong with my eyes. I keep seeing white spots.

Dominic Rivron said...

I know what you mean. It's that time of year.
