Great title for an unusual piece...a beautiful strong monotone! The T. S. Eliot quote is thought-provoking.

@k@: Thank you K! I disagree with T.S. Eliot too...but I thought it fit the image :)

( actually I am a vegetarian, but I liked the pun...)
24 Jun 2009 2:12pm
@Ken: ...you you rhymed as well :)
I disagree with Eliot. Totally. No use to be schizo to be effective (whatever the job). But of course, it's again a great image. Perfectly illustrating this quote.
24 Jun 2009 2:57pm
Excellent composition of lights... Great Job!!
24 Jun 2009 3:00pm

A strong, evocative image with a great title and quote! Superb light, composition and contrast!
24 Jun 2009 6:44pm
Love the image and a very suitable quote. I can agree with the first part of it, though the second could be argued. Drained yes, extinction more likely not. Though I think that this can`t be generalized.
24 Jun 2009 6:51pm
Interesting post between the great image and the interesting quote.
24 Jun 2009 6:57pm
Love the weathered-look of this aged split face, really evocative!
