My dear Sabine, from what I gather this witty Ulysses must have been, after all, a very wicked kind of character...After deceiving the Trojans with his wooden horse, Homer tells us that he planned his way back full of nostalgia for his beloved. The fact is that he took his time and did..ten years to come back not only because of rough seas but...because of the services of wicked Kirki, of the beautiful sirenes and of so many other probably.. extremely pleasurable adventures while back home faithful wife Penelope, dog Argos, friends, countrymen and God knows how many more were waiting patiently for him!... But, any way, with all respect to Mythology and to our great poet we praise him as symbol of boldness, tenacity, insistence, endurance and homeland nostalgia!...And so we must!..
thanks for your comments, my best regards
Wishing you all the joys and happiness of Christmas.The gift of love. The gift of peace. The gift of happiness. May all these and more be yours at Christmas now and throughout the New Year. And, of course, a lot of the wonderful images still to come .
Hohoho, liebe Sabine,
ich bin's, Elfi.
Zu deinem "Star of Bethlehem" Question Mark
habe ich dir hier die Mini-Musiktruppe aus dem Stall,
die dir sagen, daß ich
dir und deinen Lieben fröhliche Festtage wünsche und
neben einem guten Rutsch ins Neue Jahr
ein wirklich gutes 2016.
Many thanks Sabine, as always a beautiful comment. Have gone back every evening since then to see if I can improve on the "pink spray" but every time it was overcast by the fog bank and just grey. So will have to try some more (cat is half sitting on my laptop - difficult to type. He always does that when I read or am at the computer to make sure he gets all the attention)Wish you a good week,cathy
Hi Sabine, as usual your wonderful comments, thank you. I am struggling a bit mit Tieraufnahmen, dont seem to be able to resist from cutting off their heads and what not, very difficult when so many are massed in so confined a space.Went the next day again and the scene was totally different, water grey, contrast not so stark but also very beautiful in the pastel colors. I have tried the story with the legs only because it really is so impressive just to see all those red verticals, must try again.
At the moment I am battling with myself , dont feel like shooting "realistically". Also want to see what I can do with "panning" that is if I can get it right. Wish you a good sunday and many many thanks, cathy
Dear Sabine,thanks for the extensive & inspired poetic comment on my winter picture.
this shot has been good to me for many experiments and versions such as this one
not to mention papa Hemingway sitting on a parking curb eating a bacon sandwich......
BTW Toronto has a strong connection to E.H. one of his first jobs as a journalist was with the Toronto Star newspaper.....
as ever, janos
