Very fitting title, Erik! I believe, it makes the photo. Nice silhouettes. cheers, archrodney!

Happy to read your comment, archrodney! I don't know if a title can make a better picture, but it's always fun get a good one ;-) I love music and music is a great reservoir for inspiration. In this case an old obscure new wave eighties band, The Comsat Angels.

Ciao, Erik

I do believe a good title makes a better photo, Erik! It shows your creativity. I hate reading "untitled" as a photo title... :)

I love music too, loads of my photos have a song name as a title, check 'em out! ;) Best wishes and Marry Christmas from archrodney!

Sure, you're right! I checked your gallery once again and found at least 3 song titles. Enjoy the silence (Depeche Mode), Lookin' out my back door (CCR) and House of the rising sun. I thought this song was written by Eric Burden (Animals) but Allmusic says that they got it from blues singer Josh White. Don't know if it's a traditional song...

I also wish you a very happy Christmas, Tamás!

Thanks a lot for the wishes, Erik! :) I am very glad you checked my gallery! Those are very, very good songs. I almost prefer Lacuna Coil's version of Enjoy the silence.

That thing with who is the original author of House of the Rising Sun really surprised me. I also thought it was written by Animals. By the way, if you're interested in my version of that song, here you can find it. :) (I'm on rhythm guitar...) cheers, archrodney!

I'm not such a big fan of classic rock and metal, but House of the Rising Sun is by all means a classic, indeed! I didn't know the Lacuna Coil cover (I removed the band from my collection some time ago). Anyway, it was nice to see you playing that guitar, and not bad at all... ;-) There are really few Italian acts that I know and like, but some time ago I discovered the post-rock band Port-Royal from Genova. Check it out if you're interested :)

Ciao, Erik

Thanks for your compliment on my playing, Erik! I'm happy with "playing not bad at all" :D When it comes to Italian things, I usually say pizza and Ferrari. Oh and maybe Monica Bellucci. ;) I've just heard some port-royal songs, which were pretty relaxing. My favourite was Putin vs Valery. Cool band. cheers, archrodney!
