"narrow streets of cobblestone, 'neath the halo of a street lamp."
for my new favorite group ever: Musically Challenged.
i loved taking the photo prior to this. actually grabbing inspiration from a specific song, singling out a lyric or two, and then creating an image to be paired with it.
this photo, though, was not intended for any song. this image is one of my favorite ones from Seattle. it's in Pike Place Market. this gorgeous, sloped, cobblestone street that leads down to an even more interesting alley.
so i selected a song amidst the ten to choose from per week and matched the song to the photo. not as gratifying, but i miss this little cobblestone street, dammit!
"The Sound of Silence", by Simon and Garfunkel
Hello darkness, my old friend
I've come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Within the sound of silence
In restless dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone
'Neath the halo of a street lamp
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
That split the night
And touched the sound of silence
