the mountains of my summer










(for Samsuddha)

  1. These are so beautiful - and touching for me, because my 89-year-old father-in-law has been telling me all year that the clouds this year are more interesting than any he has seen. I didn't see it, but you did. Thank you.

  2. pufosi si frumosi.
    buni ca baza in conceptele care-mi chinuie gandurile.
    place-mi deci...

  3. Impressionnant et merveilleux. Alice James disait que la vertu des artistes était de voir et s'intéresser à ce que le commun des mortels ne voit pas et qui est pourtant si proche

  4. Neil, I am so touched. I remember I was in the mountains and was so mesmerized by these shapes and changing light that I took picture after picture, without even realizing that I couldn't stop. I wish your father-in-law a good and healthy new year too...

  6. dan, trebuie sa scotocesc eu mai mult pe la tine pe acolo sa vad ce este cu aceste concepte pe care tot le pomenesti :-) deci asteapta-te la mari trageri de limba :-P

  7. la source, tu est si gentille! merci pour la citation, c'est tres vrai ca, moi j'aime ces paroles de Klee: Art does not reproduce the visible; rather, it makes visible. Je ne dis pas que c'est ce qui se passe dans mes photos, je n'ai pas cette hybris, mais c'est vers quoi je tends, en tout cas.

  8. I can't wait for summer r., I look out my windows at a similar site. But my mountains are covered in snow. It's too cold.

    Is this near your home? Were you with someone you love when you took these? It seems like you were happy.

  9. how fortunate of you, folded! I would love to look out of my window and see such beauty. I live in a city which lies in a plain, but you still have to drive to get there. it's not near my home. and yes, I was happy, more than this, I was extatic, who wouldn't be so in front of this? well, maybe if you see this every day, you just get used to it and don't care aymore. I don't know :-)

  10. r., since it's alive, it's always changing. So, I don't think I'll ever get used to it.

  11. are these mountains with the soft feminine curves really the carpathians? and those cumulo-nimbus masses hovering above them like a brooding anger-impassioned lover, the summer sky in romania?.... now i know understand why they believed in old egypt that the world came to being when the earth-goddess and the sky-god fell in love.
    This is truly a priceless gift. If this Samsuddha were to see this, would he not want to travel there with you? and would he not want travel blind?

  12. These are sublime, roxana. Do you have any of just clouds? if so, please send them. It would be so great to have those clouds make such a journey!

  13. the carpathians, zuma, yes :-) I know you have been waiting to see my summer holiday pictures, so here you have a first sample. I guess the sky looks often like this in the mountains (but I wouldn't have come up with your poetic allegories :-)

    as for blind traveling, I remember our old dispute about it :-) in this case too, I should mention that when I make a trip with my camera I am totally lost in my world and fanatically oblivious of others, so I get on everybody's nerves. but, as someone I knew used to say, a camera trip is a spiritual journey, it should better be made alone :-P
