Seeing Red...

Another delightful find of 'roadkill' upon a stretch of the double black lines, particularly so given the presence of a named colour imprinted upon the surface of the object & thus that of the picture plane, another serendipitous nod, of course, to the work of Mr Jasper Johns - in a way, these little coincidences are getting to be almost ridiculous in their fecundity, but gloriously so...



No soundtrack to accompany the process of taking photographs out in the 'field' (never having owned/used a Walkman, even, back in the day, let alone an iPod or whatever, for the purposes of music-on-the-go, the enjoyment & consideration of which being, rather, more of a sedentary pleasure), but note also the lightning bolt graphic amongst the branded design upon the can, accompanying the 'thunder' of its name, redolent as it is, somewhat, to those music-&-artily-inclined, of Mr D Bowie's 'Aladdin Sane' facial flash.
Further to the subject, those discerning few of us partial to the enduring charms of Galaxie 500 prefer our thunder 'Blue', of course...
