what a ride


"life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming
"wow! what a ride!"

  2. This is a wonderful piece of art. The contrast between the blissful model in her pristine gown and the bleak scenery is very powerful.
