D70 - 24 mm, 1/125 sec f/16, ISO 200

For living here,

for living

for my senses and mind

I shall never be grateful enough.

Passing by

D300 - 100 mm, 1/25 sec f/16, ISO 640

Shadows through history

looking for a place.

D300 - 300 mm, 1/400 sec f/22, ISO 200

Far and misty I found you once
solemn figure, ditched by men
who took an oath
who ride on fears
who sell more lies to uncertain minds.

I wish you well, my distant friend
the silent hope for better times
the quest for change,
the humble strength
are but your robe and standing ground.

Director's cut - Alchemy

/ earth and heaven / this is what remains of the once free spirit / in its involution after the first creation / after the fall into energy and matter / from the deepest recess of its prison / it is rising again / the path of return / the path of life /

D70 - 62 mm, 1 sec f/2.8, ISO 200

The weather here is more pronouncedly turning to autumn, and I find comfort in usual gestures and rhythms. My morning coffee (+ some milk) is one of those seasonal habits, savored slowly, silently and possibly accompanied by a home made pastry. Among more obvious reactions, smell and taste evoke memories, state of consciousness, perceptions.
While in NYC, I was thinking of all those people swiftly pacing towards their destinations with a mug in their hand, carelessly sipping some overheated liquid, whose many names hardly correspond to a real distinction. That's habit for them too of course and coffee is still a ritual there.
I know "time is money" but a peaceful, relaxed breakfast is priceless.

D70 - 300 mm, 1/200 sec f/10, ISO 800

I need a rest

a pause.

From past mistakes

tangible ghosts,

and a feeble flame

is guiding me along

but I can't say

whether I'm going forward.

D300 - 300 mm, 1/400 sec f/11, ISO 200

I'm so different from you

and thus you like me more.

Back from NYC

Dear friends, I am now safely back home. A very special "thank you" to Linda and Kat, whose patience and wit have been duly tested during the last few days.
Does coming from the Big Apple makes me a big worm now? I wonder...

My mind

D300 - 24 mm, 1/160 sec f/11, ISO 200

Are you happy now,

oh mind,

with my feelings unable to fly

are you satisfied

by the great deception

luring me to think I am you?

Skewed, part II

D300 - 22 mm, 1/100 sec f/5.0, ISO 200

I am apparently not tuned or synced to the world yet, and I start doubting I'll ever be. Why do we always have to look at the half empty glass? Even when it is not true, an evil force makes the dark outweigh the light in our mind.

Where about this time?

So, dear readers, I hope you can endure my irregular peeking into the blogosphere for a little while. Know that in the meantime I will be struggling to find seeds in a big apple...

so long

Director's cut - Symmetry

/ perfection is such when it doesn't exists / because it would be static / longing for symmetry displays the true beauty of it / for realization is not a state /

Footprints, I trace
I walk
But you are no where in sight.

"Be verwe, verwe quiet.
I'm hunting wabbits."
Elmer Fudd
(thanks to Linda S. Silbermann)

Only barren remains
of life’s pristine start

Steps in a muffled world
my memories of you.
