Behind These Eyes

Eyes III

(1/320, F7.1, ISO100, 25mm)

This is one of my favorite pieces from graffiti-artist El Niño de las Pinturas from Granada. This is a slightly reworked version of an almost year old photo/post.

Normally I keep my love for music separate from the photos I post here, but after the unfortunate death at 39 (just two days younger than me!) of my favorite songwriter Jason Molina (in bands like Songs:ohia, Magnolia Electric Co and under his own moniker), who´s been soundtracking half my life so far and will so for the rest of it, I had to show my gratitude…
His family decided to open up his treasurous discography for the time being at http://live.magnoliaelectricco.com/.

I’m saying everything is fine
By the look in my eye
But you know darling
Half of what a man says is a lie

It’s your last chance to forget me now
That it’s done for good
You always said I’d make it out
Somehow darling I knew I never would

Here´s one of his many great albums for you:

Rest in Peace, Jason, thanks for all the great times!

    • You´re very welcome, it is not only that Jason deserves it to be heared, it´s more that everybody deserves it🙂
      Glad you like the photo to go with it too, Thanks, Ron.

  2. I enjoy your work. We share the same fascination with doors, windows, passageways, repetition and architecture. Looking forward to more. Thanks for reading my blog.

    • Hi Louis,
      Thats good to hear; this image was in line to be reposted but thought it fitted best with the small tribute i wanted to make.
      Thanks for acknowledging the combination,
      Greetings, Ron.

    • Hoi Sérach, dank je wel. Dit is duidelijk een voorbeeld van documenteren wat ik zie, de artiest hier is overduidelijk de graffiti-kunstenaar😉
      groet, Ron

    • Hi Mark, thanks, thought so too; nice small alley steps up and in one of its many corners youll most likely to find some of his work in Granada:)
      Have a good weekend, Ron.

    • Hola Carlos, yeah, for me a little sad photo would be perfect to say goodbye.
      You´re very welcome, thank you and Jason😉
      Greetings, Ron.

  3. I have some photos of graffiti on Granada, but I didn’t see this graffiti. I don’t meet songwriter Jason Molina. It is a pity your so soon death!

    • Hola Juan, his barrio is Realejo near the Alhambra, full with his graffiti. Yeah, true, i am 39 and i think thats way too soon!
      Gracias y bien finde, Ron.

    • Definitely will do some reposts, but it´s good I make a selection for you, because doing the every day photo for a year, although i had a big archive not having to find a shot every day, but still, not good for quality that I want from now😉
      Thanks for your interest!
      Havea great weekend, Ron.
