the finale by summerfield

the finale

i had a few ideas how to end the month of black and white but they all required a great deal of work and i've had a long week, and my body refused to cooperate with my brain. and this time, no matter how bitchy my brain was, my body was even more bitchy. and since today is the last day for the album cover challenge, this would do for the penultimate flashofred 2021.

artist: Jason Diamond (no relation to neil diamond)

album: wherever you may be

Jared Mason Diamond (born September 10, 1937) is an American geographer, historian, anthropologist, ornithologist, and author best known for his popular science books, among them The Third Chimpanzee.

quote:
The grass is not, in fact, always greener on the other side of the fence. Fences have nothing to do with it. The grass is greenest where it is watered. When crossing over fences, carry water with you and tend the grass wherever you may be. - Robert Fulghum

thank you, ann @olivetreeann for yet another spectacular edition of the flashofred in the time of covid. little did we know when we started this in 2013 that it would be one of the more popular annual challenges on 365. kudos to your hard work, my friend. by the way, where is alia now?

also: a heartfelt thanks for those who commented and faved my photos this month, especially my little red hat, making my only third appearance on the top twenty. keep on snapping!
I think this is great! Wonderful album cover.

LOVE me some Fulghum! Quoted him heavily in the speech I gave last year at the beginning of school.

This is a spectacular album cover but then I have never known you to do anything less when it comes to this challeng! Perfect the way you combined it with FOR

This is pretty cool and congrats on your TT, so awesome. I think you and all of you are very creative and brave to do all these challenges. It is maybe in my future, but for know as you described perfectly also my brain can't handle it, so I just shoot what I see.

Ooh I like it, love the quote too, but I don't think it will encourage me to carry water for the grass on either side of the fence :)
