Dancing......

Made at liberty festival this weekend while one of my favourite dutch bands was playing...

dit is de grote vrijheid
je mag zeggen wat je denkt
niet dat het iets uitmaakt
met hoeveel je ook bent
ze doen toch wat ze willen
al moet de hele boel vergaan
lief, trek iets moois aan

we gaan dansen op de vulkaan

De Dijk - dansen op de vulkaan

Impossible for me to translate this  without losing the context of the song...Its about so called freedom....that the world is being ruled by "them" who dont listen to the people...the name of the song is dancing on a vulcano...

Have a good week!

Petra

I love her hands, Petra, and the look on her face. The muted lighting and DOF are perfect for how you've translated this verse.

You, too, have a good week. Donica had lots of fun around city center yesterday and we missed each other!
Petra: Is Donica in Amsterdam now Ginnie? If so she must have had a good time with all the festivals...
Glad you like the photosmile

Petra: I really like it when people go "out" on the music....

Yep she is in a trance. Very well captured into a great picture. Love those words and i agree they will be very difficult to translate - you will have to rewrite it in english.

The subject i agree with - the illusion of freedom. Bound by rules, made by whom? He who wins the words doesn't have war criminals in the ranks. Political correctness, who the heck decided something is more correct? The more money you have, the more equal you are before the law. And so on.
Petra: Guess this is a subject with no end Louis.....
Thanks for your comment and visitsmile
