All true language is incomprehensible, like the chatter of a beggar's teeth.

  2. To me language is just sound being heard by no one. Your images are beautiful and astonishing enough to shatter any false realities.

  5. Well, artist speaks through their works. Your other language is through your photos that's very expressive.

    Prospero, I just realised that for the past two weeks, my browser has been giving me problem viewing pics. I hope I see all your pics today.

  8. I love the quotes you include in many of your posts. I find that I always search for more information about the person that you've quoted and from that I can see even more in your pictures.
    I love the bird picture!

  10. Hi Prospero, some very interesting shots there, I'm sure there is one missing though ? some kind of statue with a hat on ? The bird picture is very nice, love the colours.
    I have left an answer for you re - manure on my blog, sorry it took so long as I have been in London.

  11. there is an intensity to this post
    it stirs things deep inside
    the quote does this to me as well
    and wow, where in the world did you find a hot pink pig! ;-}

  12. why did you take the old and wise magician down, the one who seemed to be happy and sad at the same time?

  13. dearest, i don't usually second guess myself. mostly i put up with alternately liking and disliking something i post - but this was a visceral dislike. how are you doing with the 90 minute homework assignment i gave you (oh so reasonable)?

  14. I like the pig too - at first I thought it was a flower shaped a little like a fuschia!

    I hope this comment gets through - I tried to comment several times on the sidereal post - maybe there are lots of comments floating in the ether!

  15. How utterly lovely. This set of photos just floors me. Especially after this weekend's experience.

    Thank you for your moving comments. Well, if I try to express my thanks, I'm going to be in tears here. So--instead--thank you from both Clytie and me. She's home! She's well. It is a miracle...

  16. Attractive sequence, Prospero.
    Thrilling atmosphere in each picture.

  17. who would expect reasonable from you, Prospero?
    and you call that homework assignment, instead of bliss?
    but how funny, i had managed to get Elegiya dorogi myself, i was only waiting for the winter holiday to watch it - and now...

  18. dearest, just to crystallize the meaning of your "and now...", in this instance, it's the Ilyenko film i wanted you to see (Lebedyne ozero-zona). I realize that Elegy of a Voyage is also featured there. The director of Lebedyne is also a cinematographer and and is best known for shooting Shadows of Our Forgotten Ancestors. The script is fittingly written by Paradjanov and was shot where he was imprisoned.

  19. This is wonderful :) I always find something on here that is so ...different!

  20. Oh wow, I almost missed these. The colors are so wonderful. The pig, me an Iowan, is my favorite. Nice shots.

  21. What is it they say? Pictures speak a thousand words? Ah, so true. Each of these amazing photos has a story. I can only surmise the plotline behind each one.

    They are lovely--each with its own precious brand of beauty.

    I do especially enjoy the photo of the pink pig with defined derrier.
