Another 3:30 A.M.

This will make no sense, but an image/idea popped into my head and I had to get up and make a record of it.

I can't be the only one who does this.

All rightie, then. Pay no attention to the guy in the corner.

The photo is: SebastiĆ£o Salgado -- Full view of the Serra Pelada gold mine. Brazil, 1986

Love that picture, Greg - particularly blown up. You are not alone in getting an image in your head at 3.30am - all my best images and thoughts occur at around that time - my theory is that all the "rubbish" i have been cluttering my head with all day has gone and my mind is open to suggestion!!

Of course. But lately, oh man, I need my sleep!

We have several books of Salgado, one of them signed. Amazing photographs.

Whenever compelling ideas or words
present themselves in my mind, if I
do not note them down immediately,
they almost invariably fade away.

I love Salgado's work. He is a genius. He did pix of the Kuwait oil fires after the first gulf war that were astonishing.
