Traces of the Past is a recurrent photo challenge theme on this blog, which runs every month (for a third year now). This month we are doing it in black and white and next month this theme will be tackled in colour. You are free to choose whatever thing, building or place (even a person) that belongs to the past. It maybe a past long forgotten or a past very much present and incorporated into today’s existence.

Build me a castle

Build me a castle

To make me safe and warm

Overlooking a lake and a big bee swarm

Hide me from people in a tower tall and twirled

Put me on a cloud high above this world.



Sometimes I feel like being kitschy … I haven’t figured why yet, maybe to fight the cynic in me. Here is my photo and some lowbrow verses combined with music that I don’t really find kitschy, but quite beautiful.
