Play Minstrel Play by Iribel Play Minstrel Play by Iribel
Underneath the harvest moon
Where the ancient shadows will play and hide
With a ghostly tune and the devil's pride

"Stranger" whispered all the town
Has he come to save us from Satan's hand?
Leading them away to a foreign land

Play for me, minstrel, play
And take away our sorrows
Play for me, minstrel, play
And we'll follow
Hear, listen, can you hear
The haunting melody surrounding you
Weaving a magic spell all around you

Danger hidden in his eyes
We should have seen it from far away
Wearing such a thin disguise in the light of day
He held the answer to our prayers
Yet it was too good to be
Proof before our very eyes, yet we could not see

Blackmore's Night Play Minstrel Play

Daily Deviation

Given 2011-05-30
Suggestor's words: Play Minstrel Play by *Iribel is spectacular example of Linda's style: jaw-dropping amount of details, beautiful game of light and shadows, paintery look of photomanipulation and deep story behind the picture. ~~ also suggested by `Mishelangello ( Suggested by Trisste-stocks and Featured by kuschelirmel )

SING US A SONG, GOOD PIANO MAN!

I am terribly sorry for killing the mood. It's what I do best. Tell you what; I'll favorite this masterpiece and see if that makes things better. 

On a serious note, I LOVE the lighting here. It just enhances everything so well.

You make me feel my age! To walk again the streets of Hamelin, plagued as it was and to remember the awful dawn when the town awoke to find the children gone. After all this time, I weep still.

Your quality of images are what I strive for in my work. I have just begun to see what I can do. Coming from absolutely no art background or talent, I am slowly developing my skills. Some day, I hope to be THIS awesome. As awesome as you. If you did not say so, I would never believe this is a manipulation. I am stunned. So very well done!
