Picture This!


It's that time again for everyone to show your literary translations in photographs, the analogue style!

Play me a sad song, ’Cause that’s what I want to hear, I want you to make me cry, I want to remember the places that we left, Lost to the mists of time… – “Sad Song” by Au Revoir Simone

Sorry if I dampened anyone’s mood a bit, I am just curious to see how sentimental you guys are. If you have shots you think that best describe this verse of the song, no hesitations please and upload it now!

But it is his ice skating pictures that I am most fascinated with. Using my own lens, I give him a modern tribute.
