Artist's Description

a digital collage done in PSP X, with a fractal background done in FraxPlorer… altered in PSP and with some filters.

this image is after a title by sonny & cher, bang bang … unfortunately i was not able to locate an original video with both of them singing it, only videos of cher on her own, in a version i do not really like. still.. here is a link to the video Cher Bang Bang

i am also enclosing the text of the song, for those interested.

i am dedicating this image to my beloved baby-sis.. and all those people out there who were ‘shot down’ by a loved one; this is not about.. guilty or not.. when a realtionship goes into a deep crisis it takes two for that.. but that is not the subject here. the subject here is.. the moment of truth.. when realisation hits… that cold feeling in the gut.. when the truth hits home.. your baby has shot you down.. that family castle you have built up together over the years, is no longer a safe haven.. instead it has turned into a cold, unfriendly, alien place… nothing is like it was before.. it hurts, it’s scarey.. then end of the fairy tale is open…….. bless you all… may you all find love and peace … and the strength to forgive.

Bang bang

Bang bang, I hit the ground
Bang bang, that awful sound
Bang bang, my baby shot me down

I was five and you were six
We rode on horses made of sticks
I wore black, you wore white
You would always win the fight

Bang bang, you shot me down
Bang bang, I hit the ground
Bang bang, that awful sound
Bang bang, my baby shot me down

Seasons came and changed the time
I grew up, I called you mine
You would always laugh and say
Remember when we used to play

Bang bang, you shot me down
Bang bang, I hit the ground
Bang bang, that awful sound
Bang bang, my baby shot me down

Music played and people sang
Just for me the church bells rang
After echoes from a gun
We both vowed that we’d be one
Now you’re gone I don’t know why
Sometimes I cry
You didn’t say goodbye
You didn’t take the time to lie

Bang bang, you shot me down
Bang bang, I hit the ground
Bang bang, that awful sound
Bang bang, my baby shot me down

thanks for stock goes to
