Your Angels Will Go Free

Your Angels Shall Go FreeYour Angels Shall Go FreeNight time over the Los Angeles basin from atop Mount Wilson in the San Gabriel Mountains.

This long exposure, high dynamic range photograph I took of the Los Angeles basin made me sing within my mind the song “Los Angeles” by one of my favorite singer/songwriters, Peter Bradley Adams:

Oh, Los Angeles, we leave you now
at the setting of your skies,
and as we  leave the comfort of your ground,
with your angels we will fly.

Well,  you carried us on broken dreams,
like a mother does her sons.
We were scattered ‘cross your dirty streets,
we were dying one by one.

And you  held us in your city lights,
when our eyes had lost the stars.
And we made  our peace with lonely nights,
and you healed our broken hearts.

Well,  they say the Big One’s gonna come,
and you will fall into the sea.
But we will know then that your work is done,
and your angels will go free.

And your angels will go free.
And your angels will go free.
And your  angels will go free.

~Lyrics of “Los Angeles” sung by Peter Bradley Adams
