Q: I've noticed that five of my uploads have " Hot" in front of the caption. Why are they caterogized that way ?

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

So, so you think you can tell Heaven from Hell,
 blue skies from pain.

Can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail?

A smile from a veil?

Do you think you can tell?

And did they get you to trade your heroes for ghosts? 

Hot ashes for trees?

Hot air for a cool breeze?

Cold comfort for change?

And did you exchange a walk on part in the war for a lead role in a cage?

How I wish, how I wish you were here.

We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year,
 Running over the same old ground.

What have you found?

The same old fears.
 Wish you were here.

Pink Floyd

    WoW! I really wish I would've come across this when it was open for voting. I would've voted twice, if I could have! This is an awesome and beautifully done portrait. And, the choice of songs and title go so well with the look on the man's face. Love this piece of work!
