Self Portrait, Of Sorts

I got a Picture of the Day (POTD) award today, over at PhotoShowdown. My first recognition in a few weeks. It's a strange sort of leap, but the title was inspired by the R.E.M. song "Carnival of Sorts", from their Chronic Town EP, way back in 1982. Which I bought on vinyl way back in 1982, btw (and still have, of course).

"There's a secret stigma, reaping wheel.
Diminish, a carnival of sorts.
Chronic town, poster torn, reaping wheel.
Stranger, stranger to these parts"
R.E.M. - Chronic Town

Thanks!
I do like that early R.E.M.
I had the chance to see them in early '83, they were great. The later stuff I can take or leave....
