I'm tickled that I escaped from the craft in tact. No bizarre alien tattoos were left and they didn't touch my charge cards. Sometimes a guy gets lucky.

Ah, I see!

I guess when I wrote "Every photo should be accompanied by the passage or quote that inspired it" I was expecting it to be a Ballard story.
