Pierre Hauser ~ Puddle Jumper

Originally published May 16, 2014

I can count on one hand how many “puddle” pictures I’ve published on P1xels over the years, out of over 22,000 images. That’s how much I like “puddle” pictures.

But I LOVE this one, by Pierre Hauser. It’s just great fun: bright, clever (but not too clever!) and has a real sixties feel for some reason.

As an aside, I want to say that we are just back about a week with P1xels online and already I’m having that old problem: too many great pictures, thus making choosing the daily a challenge! A great challenge to have, I assure you.

Itchycoo Park by The Small Faces

Over Bridges of Sighs
To rest my eyes in shades of green
Under Dreaming Spires
To Itchycoo Park, that’s where I’ve been

What did you do there? – I got high
What did you feel there? – Well I cried
But why the tears there? – I’ll tell you why – yyyyy
It’s all too beautiful, It’s all to beautiful
It’s all too beautiful, It’s all to beautiful

I feel inclined to blow my mind
Get hung up, feed the ducks with a bun
They all come out to groove about
Be nice and have fun in the sun
I’ll tell you what I’ll do – What will you do?
I’d like to go there now with you
You can miss out school – Won’t that be cool
Why go to learn the words of fools

What will we do there? – We’ll get high
What will we touch there? – We’ll touch the sky
But why the tears there? I’ll tell you why
It’s all to beautiful, It’s all to beautiful
It’s all to beautiful, It’s all to beautiful

I feel inclined to blow my mind
Get hung up, feed the ducks with a bun
They all come out to groove about
Be nice and have fun in the sun

It’s all to beautiful, It’s all to beautiful
It’s all to beautiful, It’s all to beautiful
