Nu Aesthetics: Mortal Remains

 

...nothing lasts forever

the might of metal is as mortal

as weakness of a fallen leaf...

vz-nostalgia: ...and I thought you are an optimist, Ray smile
Regarding "time", it seems there is no unified approach to the definition of what time is, Ray. Philosophers (Emm. Kant) had one idea, physics (Newton) had a different idea, religion always had its own definition and so on. So, in order for something to end, that something should start first... and no one seems knows when this happened. smile

True, Viktor, but what beautiful transformations on the way to that nothing that is everything.
vz-nostalgia: Yep. A Transformation. That could be another title for this picture. smile Good observation, Ms. Suzanne.
Love the rich colours and textures, and Suzannes comment.
vz-nostalgia: Life is as colorful as we want it to be, Nig. smile
It is a lovely image, the warm colour encompassing one in comfort. Death need not be a fear it might imply?
vz-nostalgia: you speak like a priest, Ms. Jamoula. smile Through the history of mankind almost all religions tried to convince people that death is nothing to fear, it's just the beginning of the real journey, they say. smile

Nothing lasts for ever as it is, but surely transforms into something else? The leaf rots down to supply nutrients in the soil from which new life springs. And so the cycle starts again.

vz-nostalgia: I see you are in a philosophical mood today, Ms. Ingrid. smile You are right. Nothing is created from nothing or disappears into nothing. That's the Fist Law of Thermodynamics. Everything just changes its forms. Including us.smile
nice study.
lighting is perfect
cheers

vz-nostalgia: I'm a good student, Rob. smile
But some things decay better than others
vz-nostalgia: Jack Nicholson vs. Elizabeth Taylor? smile
A beautiful image of something dying...I dont think we would look so preety at this stage!
vz-nostalgia: ...all corroded and covered by green, red and brown spots? In this case, I don't think we would look pretty either, Ron. smile
A perfect photo for a perfect phrase.
Everything changes...
Happy weekend,Viktor. smile
vz-nostalgia: I'm brewing a strange brew here, Ms. Isabel, mixing images and words in different proportions. Alchemy of sorts. smile
vz-nostalgia: Ray is unusually pessimistic today, Ms. Dawn.
Darker thoughts usually work in harmony with darker images, and vice versa, don't they?

Even the piece of man made metal can not escape the touch of color mark that nature places on everything.
vz-nostalgia: Nature is restless transforming things around us, Kelly (including us smile).

This fragile leaf almost looks like a metal sculpture, Viktor, with your sharp saturation, so add THAT to the mix!
vz-nostalgia: You'll be surprised to learn, Ms. Ginnie, that a few houses down the road from this place in Ansley Park where I found a custom made iron gate full of metal leaves (and grapes). smile

vz-nostalgia: What do I think about the saying "Marble, stone and iron breaks but our love not"? Well, first of all, I've never heard of it. Secondly, after I've read, I don't believe in it. smile Love is such a fragile thing, it's so easily gets broken. Just look around, Ms. Philine. More then half of all the marriages fall apart in the Western world. Don't believe me? Here's the statistics:
The divorce rate in America for first marriage, vs second or third marriage:
50% percent of first marriages, 67% of second and 74% of third marriages end in divorce, according to Jennifer Baker of the Forest Institute of Professional Psychology in Springfield, Missouri.“
So, love is a tender plant, it requires a lot of maintenance for which half of us, apparently, have no patience. smile
I was asking a question? Not suggesting there is life after death... as I certainly don't believe jn that. But I do think that death, as an end to life well lived, can be a boon.
vz-nostalgia: I don't know, Ms. Jamoula. I have no experience in this field whatsoever. smile

vz-nostalgia: Actually, I was shooting for a triple meaning, Ms. Philine. smile Just kidding. smile
I doubt Ms. Jamoula will get your message. People rarely go back to read other people's comments. You got to communicate to her on her blog. smile

amor...mors.. makes me wonder is love a form of death ?

shot and thought as powerful and provocative as ever, Vik.
vz-nostalgia: a nice linguistic excercise, Terry. Someone will write a doctorate on this, I'm sure. smile I know Shakespeare did draw the equation, sort of, with his Romeo and Juliette. smile
No nothing left but it is transformed... great macro Viktor !
vz-nostalgia: you contradict yourself, Ms. Flo. smile Something can't be transformed into nothing, that's against the law of nature. smile

Nor anything really Vik: I like this
vz-nostalgia: we don't know about that, chris. human mind is in early stage of understanding the world that surrounds us. smile

... not even a million dollars. Lovely reminder of mortality.
vz-nostalgia: ...a million dollars! Ha! Not if you invest it in today's market, Louis. smile
