When the Music’s Over, the Sound of the Waves Continues … Koh Wai, Thailand – Landscape Photography

Yes, again, a bloody tree got in the way of an otherwise perfect photo!!! Godda try harder to avoid them. Maybe put a "greenery filter" on my lens. He he he...

The music was loud, and irritating. So I was glad when the boat left and the music was over. By the way, "When the Music's Over" is the title of a song by 60s band The Doors.

And the phrase in the first line "wind ... across water, ... without sound" comes from a great poem by Wallace Stevens ... https://www.poetryfoundation.org/poetrymagazine/poems/13261/sunday-morning

Until seconds before posting, the first line had said something like, "This old weather-beaten dock remains sturdy and stable." Then, at the last second, I though that sounded kinda trite, and the phrase from Stevens' poem popped into my head.

I rewrote the first sentence, then clicked "Post." Glad I did.

Anyway, I'm glad you like the post, and even found the title fascinating.

Wow. Thanks for the additional details and for providing a glimpse into the editing process of the photo text. Certainly, you made a great decision, one that ended up putting life and glamour and wings in your descriptions. I did not know anything about Wallace Stevens, so I am happy to have learnt something great today. The diction of the poem, nevertheless, appears to be too strong and tough. It is a great poem, anyway.

As for the trees, you do not have to cut it out. I love it. It has changed my perception about taking a shot with my smart phone. I hope to see more of it. Cheers!

Right. I was just kidding about the trees. :-)
