Beautiful.....Something so simple yet so complex...
vz-nostalgia: Like almost anything in nature, Ada.
yikes! it looks like a brain grin
vz-nostalgia: You're kidding, doc, but you're right. That's where it all starts, in the brain. You know this better than anyone else. So be it, the brain of the forest. smile

Watch out!
I think that is a hammer descending!

I hope it sprouts, VZ, but fear it is looking too much like a seductively packaged snack.
vz-nostalgia: A seductively packaged snack or the real thing, that's all we have, Ray. The alternative is four more years of self-destruction.

Yes, an old wisdom- life always passes on! Does the (wal)nut really belong to the fallen tree/forest ( I doubt, see ray's comment) ? I always like nuts as 'snack'(good food for brain!) and as symbol! Do you know the following nice saying: "God gives us the nuts, but we have to crack them open ourselves" (Johann Wolfgang von Goethe)?
vz-nostalgia: It's hard for a nut to lead the forest, Ms. Philine, when half the trees are clueless oaks.
Well I hope it does Vik
vz-nostalgia: I do too, but I have my doubts, as I see the anti-intellectualism that killed the forest is still well and alive.
My daughter's partner calls walnuts rat's brains. I have a strange family!

Love this shot Viktor. The contrast of colour between the nut and the old wood and the textures...great!
vz-nostalgia: I would be interested to know what your daughter's partner calls other things in your house, Bill. smile
This is one of the shots, where I experiment with applying a color theory to textures.

I like the lighting on the walnut and the dark wood it's sitting on.
Sorry I would have to eat it if I found it.
vz-nostalgia: and that's exactly what I did, Aussie, but after snapping a few shots. smile

I hope that you planted it Z, it won't grow far there, love the light. mal
vz-nostalgia: I'm doing my best, Mal. It's my forest now.
If I were I wouln't stay too long here...There are some of those greedy squirrels around...
vz-nostalgia: The time will change, Ms. Flo. I hope we'll see those greedy squirrels all in cages. smile

This is a good still life! I like the uncluttered composition and the gentle browns somehow remind me of Dutch Masters.
vz-nostalgia: I like being called a Vermeer of photography, Martin. smile Or you meant the famous cigar brand? smile
Thank you for you're visit and comments, I really appreciate it.
Just wanted to tell you that I moved to http://szabozsolt.shutterchance.com/

Btw, impressive collection of talent you got there!
Regards
vz-nostalgia: Welcome to Nostalgia, Szabo. Glad you found it impressive. smile
I like the different textures
vz-nostalgia: In this case, Nig, my mission is accomplished. I can move to other things now. smile

More likely that walnut will end up in someone's Thanksgiving cake in November smile
vz-nostalgia: That would a shame, wouldn't it? There would be a field of weeds instead of a mighty forest.
