photoblog image the value of solitude

the value of solitude

 

embraced by tuneful silence and seclusion

one may rise and free one's mind

and in quiet contemplation

clearer visions are defined

clear vision is hard to achieve
even during quiet contemplations
your mind is clear, but there is no vision
you have teh vision, but it's not clear smile
iris: smile
VZ: your mind is clear, but there is no vision
you have the vision, but it's not clear
iris: Yep, this can happen from time to time, Viktor.
Blessed are those, who have someone at their side, who provides vision-provoking impulses in these times or is able to lift the fog, in which the vision is encased.
Art! Like your last one, I really like the contrast between the items in and out of focus.
iris: Thanks a lot, Nigel. It's nice to know that you like it that much. It's lavender past its prime but it still looks so graceful to me.

even in quiet solitude, there are shadows..sometimes the freeing of one's mind comes from such a place. Very lovely image, Iris. smile
iris: Suzanne, thanks so much for your words. I truly believe in what you said here.
I think our mind needs the shelter of shadows to reset itself and to focus on the most important things in life. smile

A clear thought raising from the haze of thinking noise - you referred to it as 'contemplation'.
iris: "A clear thought raising from the haze of thinking noise"... oh gee, Louis, you found the perfect words. Thanks so much. Seriously.

Great shot, good idea to go with the mono.
iris: Thanks, Holly. Yes, black and white is the only way to go here, as colour draws too much attention away from the main item - and the meaning behind it.

This is a very interesting and thoughtful image.

Thank you for the kind words about From Above The book will be released in July. It's been shown at the Nagasaki Peace Museum and in Tokyo. I hope to show it in Hiroshima during the summer and eventually New York. A difficult subject to approach but important.

Keep in contact. Enjoy your blog very much.

iris: I can only imagine how difficult the approach to such a kind of subject must have been. But I bet what you got in return was worth every effort and is of great value for you personally and also for everyone else who will be introduced to their stories they could tell thanks to you.
I keep my fingers crossed for Hiroshima and New York. And I'll keep looking.
