Fiesta

Art is a response to chaos. And probably not a very good one, either.
Prospero





Fiesta









flame of the forest








orbit










le réveil









transitions








l'oeuf abandonné











magician's night










mon coeur est rouge













your breath















If you need a watchdog, Killer is available for a small pecuniary recompense.

  3. All your photos from this post are outstanding. Yellow flowers from the first photo look fantastic among the green grass. And what a wonderful light you captured on that photo. And the „flame of the forest “photo is also fantastic. That lovely tree in bloom and blue sky make the photo so colorful. The „orbit“photo is interesting composed and the next black and white shot with the flowers that look like little bells; both photos are really very attractive. And, what a wonderful view of an egg in the nest! I love that photo very much. “Your breath” photo also took my breath away; what colors! And, your Angel photo; it is like a cream on the top of the cake!:-) Thanks for another beautiful post that you sharing with us. Have a wonderful weekend!

  4. Oh Prospero!
    Your photos are magnificent. You are going somewhere, if you aren't there already. How can you not? I love the lone egg in the nest, and the flower in orbit. They are very conversational, as to what one would see that another would not. Thanks so much for sharing this wonderful day. Country Hugs, Sherry

  12. You send a flower in space! Beautiful and powerful colors! That tree in flaming red is gorgeous, but the lonely egg in a nest is what brought a tear to my eye! Thank you!

  14. Who are the people in the slide show? - it looks like a place where artists gather - or like place where friends gather - very interesting - people lost in the pile of things - you put the spot light on them!

  15. Great series of photos. Fiesta and Orbit are my favorites. I will take "Killer" for a fee. :)

  16. Oooo, so I should be very artful! :) Love the egg!!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I love Fiesta and the abandoned egg (my high school French is paying off).
    I really enjoyed the video too! Is it from a festival of some type?

  18. Your photographs are all awe inspiring & breathtaking! They have a magical quality about them.

  19. It is so long that I have seen such a 'crowded' flame of the forest. Very nice and nostalgic for me. I used to see this tree when I was a kid in my hometown. Nowadays this tree is getting rare... perhaps like what you mentioned before... gone due to redevelopment. Have a wonderful weekend and happy gardening!

  20. Orbit and le réveil are my favorites. Thanks for your wonderful post, I'm enjoying your blog, just add it to my favorite blog list.

  22. I hadn't heard the phrase, "Art is a response to chaos." That's good. Art is able in some ways, I think, to defuse the potential of chaos for evil...that's why generally dictators and their ilk so fear art.

    I'm know I'd be deathly afraid of "Killer"!

    Have you started your mystery novel yet?

  23. The flower in space is marvelous :)

    PS. We have translated a few words from Polish epecially for you on our blog

  24. Wonderful shots! the 1st one looks absolutely magic! Gorgeous indeed.

  25. Just lovely! The flame of the forest is superb! Made me think...why didn't I get a shot like that...?! Beautiful images!

  26. the little blooms help the chaos so they say~

    ReplyDelete
  27. So hard to make up one's mind! All picture are wonderfully beautiful. If I had to decide my favs were 'Orbit', 'Fiesta', and 'Transitions'.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Ah yes. Where would we be without chaos? Nothing would ever change. It is all so beautiful, but the lone egg strikes a chord. I can only offer a small biscuit, but Killer could visit any time. No toil required.

  29. Oh my so many comments, you are becoming very famous Prospero. Thank you for the explanation to the words on the video. I was actually thinking along those lines but the way you had worded it had me baffled. (doesn't take much !) I loved the music and no I didn't find it too modern, I mean here's me who loves Amy Winehouse !! So you have grown peaches as well, I am so envious.

  30. Your photos are like wonderful works of art!

  31. I've been thinking about your quote, 'art is a response to chaos', which is something I hadn't thought about before. I reckon it can be, but can also be a celebration of order and design. I wonder if it depends on the artist, and also the mood the artist is in at the time? And the outside stimuli.

  32. Excellent, is Killer available for cat duty? My Rose has become too lazy to keep cats out of my garden.

  33. I have listened 3 more times to the music and it does sound like a real piano to me. Also I wouldn't have known it was atonal ! it just sounds different ! how was it created to sound like a piano then ? I'm curious now. oh no !! more mysteries on your blog.

    ReplyDelete
  34. A beautiful series of images and. ..
    the last is the most beautiful for me!
    :-)
    Thanks!

  35. Since some of you have commented about my quote, I'll take this opportunity to explain it more fully. I do not believe that chaos is a question of mood or external stimulus. I believe it is the fundamental state of things.

    In order to examine this belief, it is instructive to look at another discipline, namely physics. The concept of entropy is paramount. Entropy can be defined, in simple terms, as the tendency towards greater chaos and is central to the second law of thermodynamics.

    Let me give you a concrete example about the tendency to greater disorder.

    You are watching a film of a girl on a swing, going to and fro, and a bouquet of flowers suddenly coalesces in her hands. You know immediately that something is amiss. You understand that the entropy of the system is wrong, and that you have been watching the film backwards.

  36. Your intensive photographic world is indeed a wonderful world of imagination. I love it to bits!
    Little butterfly ears is very cute but is this also imagination, or are there hiding some darker thoughts?

  37. wonderful images, each and every one.
    your text is an interesting thing to ponder, also.

  38. I would like to pass you a blog award - feel free to accept it or not - I just wanted to express how much I enjoy your work.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I love what you do with your camera. Fiesta really speaks to me.

    ReplyDelete
  40. for me the music adds a whole new dimension to the images - just like your captions open them up, the music adds to their depth. i loved it.

  41. Beautiful as always Prospero!

  42. Si seulement on pouvait être réveillé par les cloches des fleurs au lieu de l'être par le cloches de son réveil.

  45. Fiesta e transitions - fantastics.
    I like them very much

  46. So many great photos, it's hard to pick a favourite! Fiesta is gorgeous....and so is Angelina. More like 'butter wouldn't melt' for that photo, although 'killer' is not out of the question...our Louis has dispensed with a few rodents in his time!

  47. What a dramatic display! Just beautiful.

  48. transitions is like the entryway into the fairy world.

  49. Flame of the Forest, Orbit, Madness - each time I looked at an image I thought it was my favorite and then I'd scroll to the next one.
    Your uncanny ability to use one word to evoke feelings for an image leaves me breathless.

    Beautiful work!
