#WordlessWednesday: The British Sailor – 1915

I found this 1915 photograph of a British sailor on a discussion board
in the 1990’s and played with it over the years in different apps.

I’m breaking the rule of #WordlessWednesday by explaining the photo
but I felt it needed context.

World War 1 started Jul 28, 1914 and ended Nov 11, 1918

Is that why the British sailor had this photograph made?

If he fought in the war, I hope he survived and had a good life.

Below is the photo as I found it:

Digital painting based on a wall mural in San Francisco
In the Dark

in the dark

in my bed

by the wall

his tongue

my ear

his tongue

my mouth

his head

my thighs

wet silence

red blood

he enters

he fills me

my mouth

his breath

my face

his knife

I wait

in the dark

in my bed

By the wall

You see, one problem
I dreamed away
Wishing/hoping heroes still exist
I think why, watching the days
We’re all some kinda fool in some kinda way
So I feel all my senses, but forget the day
That is just so typically me
Oh baby, oh
Oops…I did it again!

Yes, I freely admit to liking Britney Spears. Her music makes me dance and sing, but thankfully no video on that…to the best of my knowledge; fingers crossed. She went through some bad times with the whole world watching and judging.https://yadadarcyyada.com/2018/09/05/oops-i-did-it-again/
Who needs to judge or be judged, especially for their worst day?

I wouldn’t want to be judged on…
