Mask

She had infrequently been in the garden, but his recollection was vivid, and he could not shake certain impressions: her tall, spindly wayward frame; her auburn hair and wheat-colored complexion; her thin, pale arms; her bemused attitude, and the quixotic manner in which she selected certain flower stalks, that seemed to have a secret ability -like the time she warned her best friend, Francesca d., of that impending catastrophe in her life. The other day, her father, a dimming light of the theater, had come around looking for his only daughter. Though they were never particularly close, he wanted to tell her; in that low, sulfurous voice; that he would play paterfamilias - that's what he called the role - ever since he played it some 15 years ago, in that Pirandello play she rather liked.

  4. I am confused now. But never mind, this group of nice photos is certainly a treat. I love the colours you used here... hope not masking those true beauty of nature ;-) I just woke up. The sky is a bit cloudy today. Nevertheless, I hope this weekend would be a good one. I wish the same for you.

  7. Hi Prospero confirming the great world theater;
    abstract but lively and I am sure you have some fun! Turning around a quote; we think we do Not understand each other, but we really do! Great, stimulating photography.

  9. I had to look up Pirandello and now I see where your post title from the Six characters came from. I'd never heard of him before.
    I love the picture of the weathered wood (fence picket?)

  23. I have no clue who Pirandello is. This series though look like taken from a bloody horror drama. I can see bullet wound, hear the wind chimes, sharp tools ready to cut, soft waves tempting to be touched. May be I need a psychiatrist. These images are hitting my imagination hard :)

  24. i have returned here many times - silent, mesmerized. every time a scene came to my mind, first i struggled against the connection because i thought there couldn't be any. yet -
