Shortly after posting the black and white version of this yesterday, I received the phone call I have been dreading these past months. My grandfather had passed over. It turned out that he had died within minutes of me posting Sacrifice and I would like to think perhaps that is why that song came to me right at that moment in time.

I spoke last night of posting this image, one that has been troubling me for weeks. Now, I will never be able to look at either of them objectively, they will forever be coloured with the emotions that now rage through me.


I close both locks below the window
I close both blinds and turn away
Sometimes solutions aren’t so simple
Sometimes good bye’s the only way

And the sun will set for you
The sun will set for you
And the shadow of the day
Will embrace the world in grey
And the sun will set for you

In cards and flowers on your window
Your friends all plead for you to stay
Sometimes beginnings aren’t so simple
Sometimes good bye’s the only way

And the sun will set for you
The sun will set for you
And the shadow of the day
Will embrace the world in grey
And the sun will set for you

Shadow of the Day lyrics by Linkin Park

Dedicated to Sam Sholdas

    Peace to you, Rhana, and your loved ones…
    This is me in a similar moment, standing on our family farm in NZ the day of his funeral. It’s called “Silodale”, for the silo you see in the distance

    Very poignant lyrics of a great song and a very fitting tribute. I actually had Radiohead’s Street Spirit on my i-pod when I was commenting on the b/w version and received your b-mail.

    Just about the same time Thom Yorke reached the famous line of “Immerse Your Soul In Love” which struck a chord.

    For someone like yourself that wears your heart with pride on your sleeve it seemed a fitting line that I thought i’d share with you. (Please feel free to delete comment if it’s inappropriate)
