The post title comes from the Roy Orbison song ‘When the Blue Hour Comes.’

The good times are all gone
The night keeps coming on so strong
You can’t hold on, no matter what you do
Will there be someone who cares for you
When the blue hour comes?
When the blue hour comes?

And when your restless heart
Tears your world apart
And everywhere you turn
It’s falling down on you
Will there be a light that shines for you?

I couldn’t find a recording of Orbison singing it, but I do like this version by Joan Osborne.

  1. That’s a magnificent shot, the clouds really make it. And I also do not know this song, though I do love Orbison’s voice. Such a shame you couldn’t find a recording of him, but this is very nice.

    • Thank you. I used to edit blurry things like the bird out, but now I like how they add interest to shots. And given that I am near water almost all the time, I’d struggle to avoid seagulls in my shots.
