1965 Black VW Beetle by DocSonian 1965 Black VW Beetle by DocSonian
The Cuban Wilfredo Lam 1943 'The Jungle'
shot down on the canals of Venice






shooting in the tornado

things got out of control
and the bankers are like the old kings
some fall and some live rich
in their penthouses pushing all the buttons

What lies ahead
always an adventure we will have to see,
What shoulda coulda will be will be,
We are mere dust
shooting in the eye of the tornado
around and around
and down-under

Some people really need to relax (I mean the comment above :)). Love the car. :aww:

yes.......historically true, but has nothing to do with the car, more
a philosophy. The Peoples Car it was called. Still like seeing them on the roadways.
The painting image (with some computer trickery) I put on the house and fence is by one of my favorite painters, Wilfredo Lam.
This one is called 'The Jungle,' and the car relates to me in so many ways. I wanted one when i was a teenager, but never did own one.
I lived in Germany and loved the VW Bug, I shoot it whenever i see an old one.

And the sound it makes. Like a real, big beetle flying and buzzing. :love:

As for the painting - thought it was the real grafitti! :o
I've never heard about that painter, now it's my turn to google a bit. Thanks. ;)

The background is "The Jungle' by Wilfredo Lam
it all makes sense if you know his work
