This photo has been specifically uploaded to be inserted into a short story called The Final Measure.
The story is grim, but it is a tale of our times. It is not for the genteel who seek a happy ending.
This photo was a means to an end. It is very grainy and not really part of my Gallery proper. But I needed something to take the place of Bande I part’s photo [ they knew – - she k n e w ], which was the inspiration for the story, but was removed when she left RedBubble. Her photograph was evocative and mysterious, and I have no idea how it could have inspired “The Final Measure”.
Now that she has returned to RedBubble she has allowed me to display her original image with the story.
