Zyryality: She Always Appears In Mysterious Places


...the smell of her nostalgic fragrance
will stay with me long after she is gone 
if only to appear again

She always appears in mysterious places
My muse of Spring
Stealing the dew from the leaves
replacing it with her sweet nostalgic fragrance

She does not look thick to me, VZ...more like ethereal, but still giving the blood-quickening message to all who would listen...
vz-nostalgia: Watch out, Ray. A high blood pressure is something to worry about at your age. smile

Good, you should know which movie this photo reminds me of: one episode from the opulent film "Little Buddha" (Bertolucci 1994), the Legend of Siddharta/later Buddha is told there: One day while he is sitting under a tree the three daughters of Mara, Tanha, Raga, and Aradi, try to seduce him into Mara's power. They
"did everything in the way of sensual enticement to try to attract him, such as taking off their clothes, transforming themselves into young maidens on the verge of maidenhood, fully grown ladies, and women of various ages, but the Buddha's mind was already utterly purified and he exhibited no reaction, not even opening his eyes to see.
The episode of the attempted seduction by the daughters of Mara is an allegory. The three daughters of Mara are allegories for defilements. The first is delight, the second is aversion or hatred. Delight is further analyzed into tanha, craving, endless desire; another is raga, lust; aversion or hatred here is expressed in aradi, which here means jealousy." (www.mahidol.ac.th/budsir/E_hist28.htm)
One of these three daughters, I suggest, Tanha, could be depictured here, smiling so sweetly and seductively, as if she would like to say: "Open our eyes widely, no danger!" I have to add that the film shows golden overcharged pics, not far away from kitsch, whereas your pic is b&w, but is photography therefore less seductive for ...?
vz-nostalgia: Oh, it's been a while since I saw the "Little Buddha", Ms. Philine. I guess I need to revisit it, if not for the known plot, but for the sheer beauty of Bertolucci's cinematography.
Well, the original photograph was full of gold jasmine flowers too. I guess I didn't part from Bertolucci here too far. smile

I have forgotten to tell: Buddha is told to have changed these three attractive daughters into old, very ugly women. Who isn't a Buddhist, has the freedom not to follow the message of this legend, but this shouldn't mean: peccare fortiter (Luther)!
vz-nostalgia: I'm not as heartless as Buddha is, I will let her be forever young. smile

The intensity of her eyes and the lighting is beautiful. She looks delicate and soft in her mysterious place.
vz-nostalgia: Well, she looks delicate and soft, because she is delicate and soft. Thanks for stopping by, Ms. Loreley. Be gentle with the sailors. smile

VZ, thank you so much for visiting my blog and leaving such a thoughtful comment. I appreciate it. You are the only one who is completely honest and really leaves good feedback. None of that "great spot" stuff from you.

You are a blessed man if this beautiful young lady appears to you in mysterious places. The best I can hope for is a visit from my Grandmother.
vz-nostalgia: The Capitain, my thoughts are fed by emotions, and my emotions are fed by art (among other things). smile
You will never hear "nice shot/great crop" from me. I can promise you that. smile
You bet, I'm a blessed man.
Say hello to your Grandma. I wish my Grandma could pay me a visit, so consider yourself a blessed man as well. smile

Beautiful photo. It is calm and relaxing. she looks like she has just winked and has a knowing smile. But the real complexity of the photo for me is that, although subtle, it looks like her right hand, the one mostly obscured by the leaves, is giving me the middle finger. Enticing smile but she is saying F___you - a true nymph or fairy, a la A mid summers night dream.
vz-nostalgia: This middle finger is a special F-sign to those who notice it, Mike. smile I didn't. smile
This is an excellent portrait, I love the contrast of her smooth skin to the bus'y-ness of the thickett, shows off her beauty even more.
vz-nostalgia: I often play on the contrast of textures, Nig, seems it works most of the time. smile
Very surrealist : i like very much !
vz-nostalgia: Do you think Dali would have a drink with me? smile

vz-nostalgia: what brought you into the depth of my archive, Tim?
mmmmh j'adore !!! La lumière est magnifique !
vz-nostalgia: I see you are mostly fascinated with people's portraits, Ms. Carole. Unfortunately, you won't find much of that on my site. I prefer to play with bugs and flowers smile
