Upside down or right side up?



"Each time I see the Upside-Down Man
Standing in the water,
I look at him and start to laugh
Although I shouldn't Oughtter.
For maybe in another world,
Another time,
Another town, 
Maybe HE is right side up
And I am upside down."

~Shel Silverstein~

  15. This is a wonderful shot!

    Your 'upside down' made me think of a song...cannot remember who it is by or any words except: 'Upside down! Boy you turn me inside out!' Now will have that stuck in my head.

  17. I did not remember that poem and I absolutely love it! I have a post ready to go later this week that is mostly upside down (reflected) skies -- same feelings -- always makes me feel like maybe there's another world down there.

    Your swan photo is so good.
