the mystery in you



Creation is the act of realizing that everything has already been created, and yet, not submitting to it.

  7. I really enjoyed these pictures today. The light coming through the leaves (hosta?) is really pretty.
    You always make me think, and I like that.

  9. Your pictures attest to the fact that if you believe you can invent new - to add to the beauty that we stumble upon each day! My 7 years old keep asking me every day if this or that is invented already - and yes - it all has been - but I tell him to never give up - and one day something good will come out of this constant trying!

  10. i'm moved by the mixture of old and new, thin and thick, surface and depth, open and hidden

  11. Great designs. You are a good one to study to learn such a great art. Dogs are wonderful and that photo is a prize winner.

  13. Wow. I'm just taken aback--the quote and your intricate, exquisite photographs.

    I need to look awhile and let it slip into my mind. Like a trickle of cold water sliding down my warm face on a very hot day--reviving as it goes.

  14. Beautiful. I am intrigued by the bottom one ... is it a pinecone? Or perhaps lichen? Not usually mysterious, or even given a second glance ... but you show us it is so.

  18. The shadows in those B&W pics are wonderful especially the last photo. It reveals sunlight. Sunlight is essential for our plants. Have another exciting weekend!

  21. Hello Prospero...tes photos imposent en beauté une réflexion profonde et beaucoup de choses pourraient être dites a ce propos là..
    Tout a déjà été crée et pourtant le besoin de création ne se soumet pas a cet argument et le mystère est en chacun de nous ..
    Chaque être,chaque création, chaque moment, chaque émotion, chaque regard, chaque photos..
    unique au milieu de ce, "déjà crée" "déjà vu" "déjà vécu" ....
    L'humanité est a elle seule la plus belle des créations paradoxale, unique dans sa multiplicité ...chaque grains de sable est différent..mais la plage semble uniforme de loin...et chaque création est aussi unique que son auteur... même si tout cela de loin se ressemble...
    La création est la clé de toute vie sensible...on ne crée pas pour être vu on crée pour exister, pour donner des formes palpables a notre besoin de réalisation intérieure ...alors oui tout a déjà été crée et ce n'est pas grave parce que tout reste a faire..:) et je te rejoins totalement quand tu dis que le mystère est en chacun de nous....
    mes idées ne sont pas très ordonnées, excuses m'en ..ça fait longtemps que je ne débat plus sur des choses aussi philosophiques :o)
    Prospero c'est le weekend et tu fais travailler mes petits neurones...:)
    Bonne fin de semaine
    a bientot...

  22. Beautiful quote. As for the photos they're all about beauty and mystery. Like the dry papaya leaf and the light/shadow in the other photos. Makes us reflect on ordinary things that we might otherwise simply overlook.

  25. I love the color in the first image. It certainly leaves me wondering what it is, and waning to know more....a mystery indeed. Beautiful black and whites as well!

  26. Those images are each one a poem, so beautiful, the air around them thick with secrets. Your photos radiate an ancient calm, they make me dream. Thank you.

  27. I also enjoyed the dry leaf very much. You find beauty everywhere!

  28. The force of the words can distract viewing images?

  34. Thank you so much for telling me about your furry angel. Your shots are just great but when it comes to that sweet little dog, my heart melts. You are so very talented.
