  2. I remember that tragic story. How grateful I am that these vengeful gods are not our reality.

    I love the pathos of these photos--there is loving happiness, yet somehow blurred with soft bittersweetness of story.

  4. I had to go back to reread the story of Niobe, a very sad one. I always learn something here or am reminded of something I hadn't thought about for a long time.
    The photos are beautiful and the baby is so sweet.

  15. Love the new focus on faces and people, Prospero! I am inspired to step into similar subjects, knowing full well it is so difficult to capture with that shutter click.

  20. mon très cher...

    les paroles meurent sur mes lèvres devant cette noirceur du désespoir absolu... même la lumière semble être prisonnière dans les gouttes d’eau, sur le point de se transformer elle-même en une blessure au-delà de la mort... oui, elle a tant pleuré...
    cette main tendue, pourra-t-elle jamais effacer cette souffrance, la faire disparaître du temps du monde? et pourtant... tout est là, dans ce geste...
