I pulled into Nazareth, I was feelin' about half past dead;
I just need some place where I can lay my head.
"Hey, mister, can you tell me where a man might find a bed?"
He just grinned and shook my hand, and "No!", was all he said.
Take a load off Annie, take a load for free;
Take a load off Annie, And (and) (and) you can put the load right on me.
I picked up my bag, I went lookin' for a place to hide;
When I saw Carmen and the Devil walkin' side by side.
I said, "Hey, Carmen, come on, let's go downtown."
She said, "I gotta go, but m'friend can stick around."
Go down, Miss Moses, there's nothin' you can say
It's just ol' Luke, and Luke's waitin' on the Judgement Day.
"Well, Luke, my friend, what about young Anna Lee?"
He said, "Do me a favor, son, woncha stay an' keep Anna Lee company?"
Crazy Chester followed me, and he caught me in the fog.
He said, "I will fix your rags, if you'll take Jack, my dog."
I said, "Wait a minute, Chester, you know I'm a peaceful man."
He said, "That's okay, boy, won't you feed him when you can."
Catch a Cannonball, now, t'take me down the line
My bag is sinkin' low and I do believe it's time.
To get back to Miss Annie, you know she's the only one.
Who sent me here with her regards for everyone.

une photo toute simple qui invite au repos et au délassement, une vue imprnable sur cette crique semi sauvage. Un horizon qui penche un peu à gauche.

A perfect place to sit and watch the boats coming and going. I like the way the three chairs are matched by the three boats; also the way the boats are strung out along the inlet. The lighting is very agreeable and the image has good colours and clarity.

Hey! you found really a great place where to sit and relax!
humm, I can smell the salty and fresh air... that sea is inviting but I guess the water temperature should be cold!
Better take a trip by boat!
A lovely composition, so brilliant and so clear.

This is a great shot of this tranquil scene. The chairs in the foreground add depth and interest for the shot. The line of boats lead the eye through the shot perfectly. The lighting and colors are great as is the photo's sharpness.

A beautiful invitation to be slackened here, especially with this splendid sight and certainly a good sea air vivifying. A pretty panorama on this resting bay, the natural colors are very pleasant and arises by a good estival luminosity, thank you Tom.
With all my friendships and with soon,
danos (99734) 2011-04-12 8:04
the white chairs are place perfect on the ground as look at the bay.I like the panoramic view that have someone from over there as the at the same time can watch his boat. Excellent the light and the colour management.

Hi,there is humor in this shot of 3 empty chairs watching 3 empty boats.It's a well done and inviting scene.Greetings Wolf.

Goos Morning Tom,
Three chairs, three boats ... it appears that the inanimate chairs are chosing the inanimate boats, or have the owners disappeared to do that!
A lovely pov, taking best advantage of the land and the water.
There are definitely two orientations: one from the chairs to the boats and then turning at right angles to follow the direction of the boats' prows.
Fine thirds composition and lovely colour saturation.
My warm reagrds,
rodgerg (55767) 2011-04-13 2:52

Three chairs, three boats...a single capture with very good perspective and depth.
The chairs are strategically located to enjoy the scenery.
pablominto (53746) 2011-04-15 22:58
Two dominating "threes" in this composition!
The three empty chairs are waiting for someone to sit down and enjoy the view of the three boats...
A creative composition and a fine depiction of the maritime scene!

Excellent point of view from the chairs. They form a good composition together with the boats, good work, congratulations!

This shot could be used for a travel advertisement. It is an inviting scene. The simplicity is appealing and the contrast of colors and clarity are splendid.
batalay (39249) 2011-04-20 21:31
The three chairs, one for each boat in the cove. There is an appealing symbolism here, intended or inadvertent. Wonderful composition and execution.
Didi (60588) 2011-04-23 2:40
Interesting dominant POV, nice place for holidays rest sitting on the chair. Nice perspective of the three boats.
Juntas (7960) 2011-04-27 2:22
Hi Tom. Very interesting composition. The rows of chairs and boats make a nice effect and provide a well balanced composition. Colors are great, sharpness is very good and sense of depth is also good. A fine work my friend.
Not only that, You made remember The Band, Levon Helm and his ugly faces while singing on their Last Waltz concert which is one of the best concerts I saw in my life :)
Have a nice day.

In two ways, the principle of three is well represented here and it conveys a most attractive setup!
fotka (4515) 2011-11-01 11:47
Three boats, three chairs. It looks like you invite people to seat there and enjoy beautful view.
Great composition with these chairs in the foregroud. Nice catch, good colors, light and lovely poem.
