Even as I spotted the potential shot while driving round the perimeter road at Brno, my mind was chasing a link with something I had seen before. While reviewing the files later on the laptop I had my eureka moment, it was the album cover for Caravanserai, Santana’s 70′s masterpiece. The opening track was a musical expression of this other world where light bends and dazzles. Tom Rutley, Neal Schon and Michael Shrieve’s composition still holds the attention absolutely some four decades down the road. Art that has stood the test of time.
My own effort is but a pale attempt to imitate and capture that sense of magic and wonder. One can but try…………….
