Six Characters in Search of a Title

















































































































“Truth, like light, blinds. Falsehood, on the contrary, is a beautiful twilight that enhances every object.” Albert Camus

  1. How in the world could any one title the beauty of all those pictures, especially the spectacular little favorite dog. that picture is the best to me because I would steal that little one if I could.

  3. I don't know why you shot the first flower in dark, but it looks mystic and awesome!

    What's those bean like tiny fruits in the second??

    Third and the fourth ones really look abstract and koOL

    Your pet is cute as always :-)

    Loved the floral photography! Nicely done

  6. Your "abstract" shots really interest me... I like the way that you can bring emotion to an abstract photograph... it is something I need to get my head around because I never thought it possible.... nice as always!

  7. All very enjoyable compositions, Prospero.
    In the second one I see an attractive yellow waterfall on the right half of the picture.

  9. That frangipani is pretty and the colour is the one I always think of. That little cycad showing its tough spine?

  11. The first words that jumped into my mind for this series were "mystery", "fear" and "tears".

    I really like the quote as well. So true.

  12. Fantastic photos! My favorite is the 7th picture in this post, though I know you didn't ask which one is my favorite! :-)

    Have a wonderful weekend, and looking forward to your next post!

  13. Time stands still. The white shape in the one reminds me of the painting of Georgia O'Keefe of her soaring white bird. Great masterpieces, each one. Thanks for sharing.

  15. If that is true, than falsehood must be the winner. I hope it is not true, because when blind I can no longer see your beautiful images, which may be falsehoods, must surely be falsehoods, but are true beauty nevertheless.
    I do hope you follow my rather garbled drift?

    PS. what fun, the verification word was 'pureste'! that's fitting, purest beauty.

  16. Excellent shots! Wonderful abstract! Camus was truly a smart man. Hope that people still prefer the truth even though it hurts.

  18. Now come on Prospero! stop being lazy, trying to get us to do your work for you !!ha ha
    I think the title will have to be 'Falsehood' as I'm sure there is a clue in that quote by 'Carnus'

  19. Super job, Prospero...not sure of a title...And light came overcame the darkness?

  20. The cycad and the green berries are my favourites, but all are beautiful!

  24. i don't know the name of the last flower, but two nights ago while walking home i saw it next to a fence, two huge white blossoms glowing in the dark - i stood there for a long time, mesmerized. i didn't have the camera with me. i returned the next day, only to find them gone. i don't know whether they chose to live for only one night, that particular night when i happened to pass by - or somebody cut them, a different kind of love than mine.
    in the twilight of your garden, my loss comes back to me, and yet it is no loss any longer. what meaning do truth and falsehood still have now?

  25. I love the angels trumpet! You captured it beautifully.

  26. Interesting, really interesting. I especially loved the study in greens--it seemed like a romance to me.
