    1. manik, some moments ask us to shine. in this moment the subtlety of her shine is important here (for me).

  2. Small poem for this great photo:

    In the year of 2012
    the world has no other way
    to play a life to the old piano
    but only
    by remembering
    how many feelings
    demonstrated
    on the back street of crying

    Thanks

  3. erin - "old"can be a term of endearment...right?

    also this is such wise advice for your daughter!

  4. yannis, welcome)))

    is this so? only through memory? i wonder if we don't always give past the gift of nostalgia and i wonder if we aren't always hostile to the present? i imagine the world in 1712, 1812, 1912. are we not always caught in the tension between past and present? and truly, doesn't the present always open a pocket for pain and joy?

    i am sensitive, however, to international differences. perhaps i am wrong. am i? tell me about your world.

    1. Dear Erin. You are right. There are many versions of life. One such version is your black and white photos.I think with your sensitivity you managed to capture many versions of life together. Congratulations.
