Zyrynometry: A Thin Red Line


…and I've been told so often

by every friend of mine:

"Don't even think of crossing

the forbidden thin red line"

Those voices were like crows

that just don't fly away

I closed my eyes and…did it

I crossed it anyway....

I am glad you snapped a picture of it before crossing over. This does a great job of filling the frame with textures without cluttering it up. Like it!
vz-nostalgia: Hey, Martin. Forget about the picture. I'm glad I crossed it over. Period. smile

I love it, Viktor!

Such elegance...such exquisite, though temporary, beauty in the frosting on a really cold glass of beer!
Perhaps that is why it tastes so good!
vz-nostalgia: Good tasty guess, my friend, but way off target. Beer was involved, of course, but a bit later. smile
Cool abstract work
vz-nostalgia: For some it is abstract, Losola, for me it is quite real. smile

When lines are draw, they evoke a variety of reactions. For some, freedom. For others, confinement.

exquisite...
vz-nostalgia: Got a bit lost in your (draw) line of thought, but I like it very much. smile.

I love this shot !!
vz-nostalgia: and so do I, Shakara. smile
Exquisite! (:o)

This is too much to bear, Ms. Roz. smile
I wonder what it is ? However it's a really interresting and beautiful shot !
vz-nostalgia: Well, first, let me hear your guess, Zeb. smile

been back a few times VZ, i'm stumped with the identity of the object but I like the image and your words. mal
vz-nostalgia: Who cares about the object matter, mal? What matters is your perception of it. I'm glad you took my words to your heart. This is very personal, I was'n comfortable putting it up for a public view at first. smile

I really like the ambiguity of scale here. Also, the light reflecting off the bubbles makes it glow like stars in a distant gallexy. It makes me want to know more.
vz-nostalgia: A distant galaxy or glass of beer? That's splendid! But it doesn't really matter, Allen. We see in things what we like to see. smile
I like it...
vz-nostalgia: Bet you do, Ms. Bernie smile

Viktor, a very smart picture, a great macro, my glasses look like that when I am on my bike in the Dutch fog.
vz-nostalgia: Well, keep your camera ready next time you dive through the thick Dutch fog, Ms. Astrid. smile

i love it!!! ...very abstract and open - it has a interesting quality that reminds of the intangible sparkling nature of mercury.
vz-nostalgia: So glad you do, Ms. Nasreen. Where have you seen so much of mercury? I'm quite concerned about your health now. smile
Excellent abstract Viktor, full of nuance and interest.
vz-nostalgia: Glad it kept you on your toes, Mike. smile

Lovely image, Viktor! Very fine details! I guess it's in our nature to try to guess what it is... though I like your reply to Mal that it's the perception that matters. But for what it's worth, I'd guess it to be a red-rimmed glass filled with some bubbly (or soapy?) liquid...
vz-nostalgia: Hi, Les. Glad you liked my thought I shared with Mal, but you took the wrong path, along with Ray. Try again. smile
Incredible image ! So sharp ! But what is it ?
vz-nostalgia: As I already said to mal, the object should not matter, Ms. Flo. What matters is your own perception of the thing. You wouldn't ask Juan Miro or Vassily Kandinsky the same question, wouldn't you? smile

Ok, I like it. But first, what is this line you crossed? I am thinking Amoeba...I asked few colleagues on the spelling too. I give you that you are above average when it comes to photography, but please don't super abstract your comments VZ...your photos are confusing enough....but really I like it. Now, what's your secret? Hash? Hasheesh? come on tell us.
vz-nostalgia: "...when it comes to photography..."? Hey, I'm above average, period. smile I came from a place where "all the men are good-looking, and all the children are above average..." as Garrison Keelor used to say.
Hashish?! I like your version a lot, as it explains all things at once. smile

Your right of course, it matters not what the object ( subject matter ) is, it only matters how we the viewer perceive it and how far we are willing to cross the line for understanding or to allow our imagination to roam free. I like this Viktor, thanks for the prod.

J
vz-nostalgia: You're welcome, J. I'm gad we're on the same page. smile
The word that hit me when I saw it has already been used here so I will echo Ray. Pure elegance.
vz-nostalgia: smile, Mike. I will except "pure elegance" as your word of choice. smile

My first thought was wow as soon as the shot came up on the screen. So many want to cross the line but are afraid to do so. Sometimes once one crosses the line a flood follows and other times only a few pour out. I don't know why sometimes its a singular event or a flood but probably has something to do with the value of what is on either side or maybe how far one side tips. I'm glad you crossed your line Victor.
vz-nostalgia: Crossing lines is in my job description, John. smile That was a thoughtful comment. Don't hear many of these from you. smile
I like it...and the comments doesn't make it less interesting. Hope the crossing did you well (or maybe does you well)....and yes, it's all perception....
vz-nostalgia: smileYes, Aksel, it's all about how we perceive things: some see here a glass of beer, others see a universe. smile

Nice abstract shot! I like the details in the foreground.
vz-nostalgia: Good to see you here again, Claude. smile It's been a while. smile
nice well seen picture. It's a completely different world when your in macro mode, or close up
vz-nostalgia: Yep. Everything is different. Makes you think, doesn't it?
Nods ..... richard.
vz-nostalgia: Don't try nodding in Bulgaria, Richard. That means "no" over there. smile

The red line at the end of the world, cross it and you might fall off.
Love the image.
