Cul-de-sac, cul-de-sac, cul-de-sac !

Listen to this sounds ! Shout this phrase loud ! Listen, listen ! Aren't they pretty ? What's the meaning ? It's my another comment to the actual situation.
I said already that I've closed the "attic" series but this one is a jewel which waited to be polished.

Title was taken from the great piece of art - the movie directed by Roman Polański. Another sweet pornographer. :giggle:

--info--
[exiff: Oly E-1, ISO 100, 0.3 s at f/8, 17 mm with kit lens, tripod, RAW as always]
Modifications: oversharpening like such when using selective masking under enlarger. All "halos" around edges are desired here. All faults, out of focus, movement blur, lights blowouts and black-as-tar darkness were intended here.

I love this piece !! And the title fits very well, at least if one knows that "cul-the-sac" means dead end... ~BruitDouceFarce is right about his literal translation of course, I can imagine that in the origin of this word come's from it, the bag,s butt is the bag's end, and of course at the end of bag there is no more to go, if your hand has reached that end the bag is probably empty too. This makes me wonder why Tolkien named Bilbo's and Frodo's residence in the shire "Bags End"...

Boy, there you see what happens when my mind starts wandering :blush: All I would have needed to say is that the picture is just great, the strong B7W works perfectly and it conveys a lot of emotion.

You're right - We reach the end of bags very seldom - only to got very small things out of it. Just like hobbits. Hahaha... Great point.
And i think (judging from polish translation ("W Matni" - check the polish-english dict. for word "Matnia" or click here: [link] ), where title means literary "situation without an exit, a dead end" and leaves no place for word play) it was a smart move from Roman's side to give it such brave title.

It's good to set Your mind free and it's good to meet somebody who can say something more from just "w00t!" here... :D

I'll try to translate it back: "I can notmuch speak polish to Your mem !!" - sounds like "Your member"... Hehehe... Horrible... For speaking something like that on the street one can find himself pretty cornered after while - cul-de-sac, I should say, will occur then. :XD:
