desire


Man is a creation of desire, not a creation of need.

  10. I enjoy all the pictures, Prospero. The first one looks really like a nice abstract painting.
    About Gaston Bachelard's quote, maybe there is a third hypotesis.

  20. I like to think the Creator made us because He was lonely. He wanted us to chose Him. Your photos are so illusive this time around. But perhaps that is how to best describe desire. Illusive, yet powerful.

  21. A strange calmness pervades over all of your work. Photographic dream images.

  22. Desire, wants, needs... that's a very interesting and rich topic. Your pictures as always, encapsulate the philosophical essence of desire.

  24. Prospero...I love he way you include Angelina amidst your mysterious, beautiful photography. She blends in so well with the 'theme'. The white of the periwinkle stands out against the dark background. I like the mushrooms and the red bloom. Carnation? There's something about fallen blooms. Do they accidentally fall, are they carefully placed, or simply discarded? There has to be a story behind these (fallen) blooms!!

  25. I guess I could say I don't need these photos, but I do desire them...'cause they are delightful to look at and give cause for thought...

  26. Red carnation looks great againts the grey background - like..... desire?
    Greetings:)

  27. Desire it is! Close your eyes until you see the purple flare - touch the mushrooms - they may be dangerous - like a man giving you a red flower!

  28. Wow!
    I wandered into here from elsewhere and lost myself in your photos ... time vanished, life paused. Thank you for a mesmerising blog.
