A Horse with No Name


This is a  dry, cracked and barren landscape of a …a rusty pipe. It reminded me of the song by America you may recall “I’ve been through the desert on a horse with no name; It felt good to be out of the rain;In the desert you can remember your name;
‘Cause there ain’t no one for to give you no pain

The song’s resemblance to some of Niel Young’s work aroused some controversy. I know that virtually everyone, on first hearing, assumed it was Neil. I never fully shied away from the fact that I was inspired by him. I think it’s in the structure of the song as much as in the tone of his voice.

    This almost looks like a nice shot of an arid desert shot. Really cool image.
