“We cannot live only for ourselves. A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow men; and among those fibers, as sympathetic threads, our actions run as causes, and they come back to us as effects.”
― Herman Melville
This is what I take when I’m in a murderous mood and in turmoil.
And these are the images I captured when I’m at peace with myself…
These cockroaches are not real. They are magnets.
These are not real flowers (hydrangea macrophylla) They are made of silk.
These bouquet of roses and ranunculus is fake.
Even these realistic sculptures of cats and dogs aren’t real.
This lady spooks me especially in the night. Her features are so realistic I expect her to move anytime.
And these two couples though they are clearly not real their expressions and body language are so human one can easily relate to them.
Art imitates life and, sometimes, life imitates art. It’s a weird combination of elements.
I love to watch the passing of time…
The sun going down…
And seasons changing…
What keeps me going and helps me to stay positive and hopeful when the weather is frigid; the sun is weak and remote? These…
Occasional garden visitors
The beauty of winter
And thinking of Spring
Weekly Photo Challenge: Alphabet
Observing the law of gravity in daily life.
Which reminds me of what E. Weston said about Consulting the rules of composition before taking a photograph, is like consulting the laws of gravity before going for a walk.
Don’t mind me while whistling the “Song of The Star”
“I am nothing but
Oxygen and hydrogen,
A luminous sphere of plasma
Held together by helium and gravity,
And like a balloon I float on earth,
Waiting to be released back into the sky,
Waiting to go back in the reverse direction
From which I came,
Traveling through a warm tunnel of light,
And out into a dark, cold abyss
Where I will explode into a thousand pieces.
I shall leave behind my body,
Just like air abandons the skin of
A shattered balloon,
And the magnetic dust that carries my
Heart and spirit will lift us back
To congregate and shine
With the stars…”
You know the rest…
