Comfortably Numb

Hello. Is there anybody in there? Just nod if you can hear me. Is there anyone home?

Come on, now. I hear you're feeling down. Well I can ease your pain, Get you on your feet again.

Relax. I need some information first. Just the basic facts: Can you show me where it hurts?

There is no pain, you are receding. A distant ship's smoke on the horizon.
You are only coming through in waves. Your lips move but I can't hear what you're sayin'.
When I was a child I had a fever. My hands felt just like two balloons.
Now I got that feeling once again. I can't explain, you would not understand.
This is not how I am. I have become comfortably numb.

Ok. Just a little pinprick. There'll be no more --Aaaaaahhhhh! But you may feel a little sick.

Can you stand up? I do believe it's working. Good.
That'll keep you going for the show. Come on it's time to go.

Gilmour/Waters

Another impressive shot Mal. I actually have a few like this but never actually had the courage to post them.
Mal: Have a lovely vacation Jide. Mal

Superb. The strokes of light on the top left actually seem like a continuation of her eyelashes. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Mal: Samira, thank you very much, I appreciate it. Mal
Cool...not a massive fan of the Floyd... I have been known to sample alternative smoking materials...then again, great guitar solo...smile
Mal: I shant tell the authorities Dave! wink Mal

I love pink floyd - they've got to be one of my all time favourite bands . Brilliant words and great shot - surreal.
Mal: Hey Jessie, thank you very much. I listen to Floyd so often. Mal

Love the tones and the processing mal. The bands of smoke are great. Just imagine what a prime would do here. smile Whilst i was never a real floyd devotee i do appreciate their contribution to music production techniques with things like stereo panning on the animals album. When i hear some of their stuff it reminds me fondly of the the time i jumped out of a plane. The national broadcaster in OZ http://abc.net.au/myfavouritealbum/top100.htm recently recorded australias favourite album as dark side of the moon and it is easy to see why their ascending guitars are favourites with people.
Mal: Thank you Neal, yes, I'm waiting for that toy!

Just checked that link, they are a fav across the world it seems

You've captured an awful lot of emotion and atmosphere in the shot, well done.
Mal: Thank you Simon. All the best. Mal

You even take your camera to the dentist? Actually quite an idea - if he knows his work is going to get recorded, he may be carefull.

Here, in a dramatic moment he is pointing the drill at you. What a moment to capture and lucky you have some comforting words to think of smile

A great blog and all
Mal: Thank you Louis. Looking forward to your post on Friday! mal
I am from the anti smoking commission, this shot has to be erased !!!! smoking kills, not good to smoke,...

Roswell, New Mexico 1947: The alien "George" enjoys a last cigarette before his own autopsy..

What a fab shot Mal. This is just trippy in th extreme. I can't guess at the PP that's been going on here. 10/10
Mal: Today SL, i Feel that I was born in 1947! Thank you. Mal

nice cool tones...
like this shot,
every note in the first solo of comfortably numb is soooo err,spine-chilling to say the least,one of my all time favourite songs to play live..(easy keyboard parts,leaves a lot of room for stage antics hehe)
Mal: I did not know you were in a band! Tell me more Shiv! Mal

Mal: Thank you very much, exactly what I was trying to do. But it does not always turn out that way. Mal

Suby thinks there's some similarity between yours and my current work. Regret, all in all, yours leaves mine for dead. I don't see the similarity myself, though.
Mal: No similarity at all Colin, in todays images! But hey, we both got good ones today! Mal
Very cool.
Mal: Hey Josie, thank you. Mal
i can just see pink at the doctor's...excellent correlation...lovely shot...just one complaint - i think its unfair not to put waters' name at the bottom along with gilmour's...
Mal: Point taken, I shall ammend the info Master. Mal
I must have been living under a rock up until now, but I haven't seen much of this style of photography before. It is lovely!
Mal: Hey Martin, just join me under my rock! wink Mal
p.s. smoking kills wink...
Mal: I wasn't smoking Master, I was mearly observing! wink Mal

Last minute comments scores out of 10= Compostion 14/10 Lighting 9/10 idea 15/10 Merri Xmas and A happy blogging new year
Mal: Have a lovely time Abi, merry chrimbo. Mal
I remember Jide put up an image not dissimilar to this a few weeks back, and I said then that the making of the image was the glowing embers ash of the cigarette. I think this is quite similar in that respect. Not to sure you needed to give us ALL the lyrics to Comfortably Numb, but seeing as they're so good WHO CARES! smile
I hope you are not the smoker....
Mal: Not these days Andrew! God I miss them though! wink Mal
I'm old enough to be a Floyd fan Mal wink and I've still got my original vinyl too tongue
Mal: I still love hearing the crackles of vinyl Chris. Mal
S#*t Mal, and you are on about me and Pink!! Who's the dodgy one around here?! Man, you need some serious therapy or a damn good optician. Between you and Neal, you've buggered my eyes up so much the last couple of days, that my opthalmist has had to order extra strength lenses for me, so that I can once again sing with conviction; "I can see clearly now..."!! Seriously though, this is a great image Neal, sorry Suby, um no, Jide, oh yes that's it Mal!!
Kind regards, Inspector Clouseau and the Pink panther!
Mal: I'm certainly not finished with your eyes yet Mr Cad in Lilac, but I will be very gentle with you tomorrow! Just wait till Thursday!!!! wink Mal
I love that album. Great song too. The Wall is the best album I've ever heard. A little bit sad but...
Mal: Thank you Florence. I return to that album over and over again! Mal
very cool shot mal.
Mal: You made me smile the other day with your reply to Rabby!
