Where i lay my head is home. by opportunistatlarge Where i lay my head is home. by opportunistatlarge
And the street becomes my bride
I have stripped of all but pride
So in her I do confide
And she keeps me satisfied
Gives me all I need

And with dust in throat I crave
Only knowledge will I save
To the game you stay a slave
Rover wanderer
Nomad vagabond
Call me what you will

But I'll take my time anywhere
Free to speak my mind anywhere
And I'll redefine anywhere
Anywhere I may roam
Where I lay my head is home

And the earth becomes my throne
I adapt to the unknown
Under wandering stars Ive grown
By myself but not alone
I ask no one

And my ties are severed clean
The less I have the more I gain
Off the beaten path I reign
Rover wanderer
Nomad vagabond
Call me what you will

But I'll take my time anywhere
I'm free to speak my mind anywhere
And I'll never mind anywhere
Anywhere I may roam
Where I lay my head is home

But I'll take my time anywhere
Free to speak my mind
And I'll take my find anywhere
Anywhere I may roam
Where I lay my head is home

Carved upon my stone
My body lie, but still I roam
Wherever I may roam

- Metallica, Wherever I May Roam.



My first DD.

Where i lay my head is home. by ~opportunistatlarge. To quote the suggester: " "Where i lay my head is home" is a beautiful, classic, black and white street shot. The use of foreground framing really makes the viewer dive in head first into this image." ( Suggested by Kel-----Bel and Featured by bQw )

Oh, yeah...I can imagine! I've had scenes change right before my eyes, at times, too. Normally, I'm left kicking myself for NOT getting the shot, though! You did a great job here! :clap: :thumbsup:
