Bill Phillips: You are most kind Peter
I like the light and shadows right at the window
Bill Phillips: This picture would have been better cut in half
Just enough light to guess what is inside Bill! Fine image.
Bill Phillips: I don't like to make it too easy all the time Richard

I don't know what to say about this -
Bill Phillips: Then don't say anything
What thou sayeth is verily the truth, Sir William.
Bill Phillips: Would I lie to you Ginnie?

a wonderful atmospheric photograph. This room could be the studio of the alchemist and philosopher Dr. Faustus.
Bill Phillips: Ah that had not crossed my mind....

Ah, me! this dungeon still I see.
This drear, accursed masonry,
Where even the welcome daylight strains
But duskly through the painted panes.
Hemmed in by many a toppling heap
Of books worm-eaten, gray with dust,
Which to the vaulted ceiling creep,
Against the smoky paper thrust,—
With glasses, boxes, round me stacked,
And instruments together hurled,
Ancestral lumber, stuffed and packed—
Such is my world: and what a world!

And do I ask, wherefore my heart
Falters, oppressed with unknown needs?
Why some inexplicable smart
All movement of my life impedes?
Alas! in living Nature's stead,
Where God His human creature set,
In smoke and mould the fleshless dead
And bones of beasts surround me yet!

Fly! Up, and seek the broad, free land!
(Goethe, Faust)
Bill Phillips: ...but I see what you mean

I love people who state the obvious ....
Bill Phillips: It has become very popular to have an expert from the school of the blindingly obvious pontificate on most events that some plonker in power has only just discovered.
I wouldn't have cut it in half as you suggest to Elizabeth but with that excellent window I might have tried to draw out a bit more detail in the shadows.
Bill Phillips: I have gone for gloom here Brian.

Ooo very atmospheric
Bill Phillips: I am pleased you think so Anne
And the light shineth in darkness and the darkness comprehended it not. ie it remained dark like here.
Bill Phillips: Very true Martin. The dark side winneth grin
