CHELSEA MORNING

Jo Ann Tomaselli ~ Fine Art Photography

A dramatic colorful dawn.
A vibrant sun barely peeking above the horizon.
A brilliant turquoise blue sky mirrored on the waters’ surface.
A seagull perfectly silhouetted in a water-world landscape.
The strains of a song running through my head.

Many times when I’m photographing, I’ll hear a song drifting in my mind. If it’s persistent enough it becomes the title for the image.  On the day I took this image, I couldn’t get the song ‘Chelsea Morning’ by Joni Mitchell out of my head!

In her 1967 introduction to ‘Chelsea Morning’ at the White Swan in Leicester, Joni said this of her song “This is my Chelsea Song. It’s also full of morning and rainbows and much the same things because it was inspired by the same set of stained glass windows.”

Happy humming!

Woke up, it was a Chelsea morning
And the first thing that I heard
Was a song outside my window
And the traffic wrote the words
It came ringing up like Christmas bells
And rapping up like pipes and drums

Oh, won’t you stay
We’ll put on the day
And we’ll wear it ’till the night comes

Woke up, it was a Chelsea morning
And the first thing that I saw
Was the sun through yellow curtains
And a rainbow on the wall 
Blue, red, green and gold to welcome you
Crimson crystal beads to beckon

Oh, won’t you stay
We’ll put on the day
There’s a sun show every second… Joni Mitchell
