internal ashes Picture

the currents have their say
the time is drawing near
washes me away
makes me disappear

and I descend from grace
in arms of undertow
I will take my place
in the great below


-NIN, The Great Below

I really like this photo...
it's supposed to be ugly.
As is alot of my recent work.
And I'm liking the ugly things I find here on DA, the most hideous and questionable, the most challenging and daring and the most controversial.. are the most beautiful.

.
Note: I find that sometimes I resemble a bird.... hence the phoenix idea.
blur intentional... dont complain.
full view please...
