Hmmm. Make of that what you will. Moving on now from the shadow psychobabble to the Shadow Gallery collages! I created two more this week using some of the super shots from participants. I’m constantly amazed by the clever and diverse range of beautiful photos I see each week from everybody. You're all so inspiring! Sandra from Bubble Babble has been uploading the collages into her blog sidebar, so go take a look. Onya Sandra for spreading the SSS love and featuring everybody’s photos in cute miniture versions! They look fantastic! If you’d like to participate, shoot a shadow, post it on your blog, add your link to Mr Linky found at the bottom of this post & visit other players. Have fun!
The following collages I made while listening to the latest Portishead CD. How good is this CD!?! I’ve been playing it to death for the last month. A haunting collection of gloomy and grainy film noir atmospherics that just seems to get better & better with each listen. The amazingly affecting voice of Beth Gibbons is just as captivating now as it was on their debut Dummy CD from over a decade ago. An incredible release, years in the making but oh boy was it well worth the wait! Sure, it’s hardly happy-go-lucky sunshiny, slurping on strawberry ice cream kind of music, but still very beautiful in an unconventional & spooky kind of way. Everybody should rush out & buy this CD. Seriously!

Here's my Shadow Shot Sunday #7
“Ducks don’t need satellites / They don’t need satellites / They most likely think the sky ends blue / Don’t you wish you did too?” – lyrics from “Ducks Don’t Need Satellites” by Kate Miller-Heidke
Oh & while you're all rushing out to buy the latest Portishead CD, I also recommend that you pick up a copy of Kate Miller-Heidke's Little Eve CD. It's also brilliant! And, if you can manage to track down a copy that includes the limited edition bonus disc, all the better. On the bonus disc Kate does a wacky and highly entertaining operatic version of the classic Talking Heads song Psycho Killer. Your life will be all the more richer after having heard this song. I swear it will! Happy Sunday.
