Some light from somewhere

The Lens-Artists Challenge #166: Artificial Light

I wondered if I would include a song with this post.

Sometimes words come into my head, sometimes they are mine and they will find their way onto the post. Other times someone elses words just drift in and need to drop into the post. This is one such song. I love Robin Gibbs voice and the brothers harmonies are wonderful. Have a listen as you scroll.

“Alons, viens encore, cherie.
J’attendrai patiemment sous la lampe dans la vieille avenue.”
