You and I must fight for our rights
You and I must fight to survive

Muse, Knights of Cydonia

scream
no one, will believe you

no one, cares

scream, and scream
no one, will believe you

no one, cares

scream, and scream, and scream
makes

no,
difference

until
one day

they do
care


scream

I took this shot today during a photo shoot in Salamanca which I think will give me material for two more posts – featuring pianos and the work of Henry Moore.
