in the small hours of the morning
when mist is the chosen path of the thorn
she breathes the world

in and out
until things lose their names
like a flower its petals
in early winter.

    she breathes the world
    in and out
    until things lose their names
    Sublime words.

  4. Les clicher dans cette atmosphère des années 30 ou dans la brume du matin, cela ressemble à des films de Bergman étrange.

  5. :-)

    I don't know if this can be explained in gender terms, Peter. I think it is more a question of vision and style. I know male photographers who do this much better than me.

    but talking about the gender issue in this case, I read this:

    I don't know how true this is or of you can discuss this in these terms (I don't like generalizations), but I liked "humongous egos" :-)

  6. thank you, merc, for making me see the courage where I had only seen a kind of ecstasy. and abandon.
    it makes me shy when you say you liked my words in english.

  8. merci, Siam. d'autres ont parle des annees 50 par rapport a certaines de mes photos, cela ne peut etre qu'un bon signe de regresser comme ca, peut-etre je vais pouvoir retourner un jour au debut du siecle, a mon grand amour pictorialiste :-)

  10. Roxana! I appreciate your insight. Yes I wasn't considerate enough to talk about the gender term though man & woman have quite different taste of whatever. Mind & Body issue might apply but not always. And I agree ego supercede all those physiological differences. Really joyful to talk with you.. light of dawn.. Sometimes generalization is good excuse to start talking safe. :p
