This is exquisite, Viktor. Very dreamy. smile
vz-nostalgia: looks like Friday is a day of Dreams, Ms. Ginnie. smile

vz-nostalgia: Only The Lonely? Nah. More like Leonard Cohen's moment. Or Gabriel Marquez'. Or Glenn Gould's.
There is a vast difference between solitude and loneliness, Ray. Solitude is the Elysium of poets. smile
Minimal and striking VZ
vz-nostalgia: "Maximum result with minimum effort". A motto either of a genius or a lazy person, Nig. smile
Dreams and nightmares
vz-nostalgia: having nightmares instead of dreams is like smelling rotten eggs instead of roses, Ms. Stef. smile
Are those hosta leaves, pristine before they become lace like?
Got to have a dream, lonely or not.
vz-nostalgia: Your knowledge of all things botany is quite impressive, Ms. Pixie. A hosta indeed. smile
Regarding having a dream... I see you and MLK are on teh same page. smile

I know the colour is wrong, but I thought Lawrence of Arabia - my dreams were always far fetched;o)
vz-nostalgia: I doubt Peter O'Tool would approve your analogy, Mike. There is very little satisfaction in being compared to a fly. smile
Seriously, it didn't occur to me to look at those lines as sand dunes. Otherwise, I'd play with the yellowish hues.

Now I'm dreaming of catching a fine brook trout.
vz-nostalgia: wake up, Chris. Let's go fishing. smile
You know, when I look at this tiny insect and see the iridescent colours and those amazing compound eyes I think how many man made objects are so exquisite in their design?
vz-nostalgia: iPod? smile Just kidding. How many materials can compare with the strength, light weight and the flexibility of a spider web? We have a long way to go, Bill. smile

Love those greens Vik!
vz-nostalgia: Stop salivating, Chris. They are not edible. smile
Beautiful colours in this creature VZ...Would love to see a closer shot of it. Nice one.
vz-nostalgia: A closer shot of the fly, though full of the intricacies of a fly body, will be a totally different photograph with a totally different mood to it, Ron. It will be more towards traditional macro photography to which, I must admit, I'm kind of indifferent. smile

The tiny bugs looks so lost in this vast green environment. Awesome details and composition. Well done.
vz-nostalgia: wonder, if being lost in the vast green environment will qualify for a definition of solitude. I think it might, Ms. Laurie. smile
Superb macro Viktor
vz-nostalgia: Well, technically, it's not a macro, Ms. Pam. smile
superb shot Victor, dreams hmmmmm looks like our plonker Gorden Brown has being sucked into the "The new world order" smile
vz-nostalgia: plonker? hahaha I had to look up in the dictionary for that word, tim. smile
yep, a new world order is shaping up, and we just stand here in silence and watch how they shuffle our money. smile

Loneliness is not the same as being on your own. It's possible to be lonely in a crowd yet at ease with your own company.

Astonishingly good picture wink
vz-nostalgia: Absolutely. That's exactly what I was trying to explain to Ray, Ms. Ellie. You did a much better job. smile
I really Love this shot. Ohh I wish I were just a little as good as u;-)
vz-nostalgia: "95% hard work and 5% talent". Remember, Ms. Lyndah? smile
two worlds meet..the light as air little jewel of an insect and the green planes of the hosta leaves...no loneliness to be found here, only a soft place to land... full of promise, full of dreams as seen through eyes we can only dream to view the world through. Such a delicate, touching, and precious photo.
vz-nostalgia: two worlds in harmony... no loneliness, but solitude... the dreams of promise... where is this land, Ms. Suzanne? Show me the way. smile

Yes, you are right- dreams are an important part of our life , but they alone don't satisfy and don't make really happy! Yes, Friday looks like a ady of Dreams (Astrid's pic and music...)! While looking at your beautiful pic- full of shades of green, known as the colour of Hope, I think of Grimm's fairy tale about "one who went out into the big, wide world" to ...! I wish your little Sir good luck and that he will find a delicious food and a lovely girl friend...!
vz-nostalgia: I wonder, why did you decide that this is a little Sir, Ms. Philine, and not a little Madam? smile

...sigh.... dreams....dreams.....and do I feel lonely ? NO my dear Viktor, I have my dreams, I have my friends and I have my SC friends.
Everyday is a new gift to me, I know, it sounds strange, however we have to walk the path of life, if we like it or not....oops I am wandering off...
Have a nice weekend.
PS. I did see Philine's comment, dreams only are not enough, some dreams come true though and a life without dreams is no life, this is MY humble thought.......
vz-nostalgia: Well, Ms. Astrid, for some, dreams are not enough, for others, that's all they have. smile
Maravillosa.
vz-nostalgia: m-a-r-a-v-i-l-l-o-s-a. That sounds like music, Enric. smile

I love this. The iridescent body, cool green of the plant, and simplicity of the overall image makes it a wonderful shot
vz-nostalgia: Yes, Ms. Jennie. Simplicity would be the most important word in here. There is a fine line between being simple and being simplistic. We got to be careful not to cross it. smile
In a word, Magnificent.
vz-nostalgia: smile Ola
and how would you describe it in two words? smile

vz-nostalgia: :
...what happens to a dream?
The dream explodes.
Explodes into a hundred little lonely droplets.
A hundred little lonely dreamlets.
want one as a memento?..
vz-nostalgia: the thought of solitude came only naturally, Vernon. smile
How have you been? Any plans on visiting the States?
Wow, what a remarkable macro. The tones, the composition, and the sharp focus in the foreground -- fine, very fine!
vz-nostalgia: Good to see you on Nostalgia, Diane. smile

vz-nostalgia: are you saying that everyone who has the wings cannot dream in solitude, Ms. Reis?
Back to your big question "who answered?". Could you remind me what was the question about? I'm drawing blank here.
Arguing with you? Who me? You must be kidding. I learned my lesson long ago. It doesn't do you any good to argue with a woman. You only node your head and say: "Sure, dear. I'll do it in a minute", and keep doing what you're doing. smile

The question was: "Have you ever been lonely?"
My question was: Who answered this question?
(Oh boy, it can get more complicated than this grin)
Now I resent that part about arguing with a woman...we don't just node our heads...we also put a marvellous and comprehensive smile in our faces...
vz-nostalgia: The answer is, she answered (with a marvelous and comprehensive(!) smile). Of course, it could be more complicated than this, if we want it to be. smile
...regarding arguing with women, be easy on me, Ms. Lina, I was barely talking about myself, when I said "you only node your head...." smile
Great capture. A whole world unto itself.
vz-nostalgia: Indeed, Edward. At times, we voluntary reduce our world to almost a point and stay there until things get sorted out. smile
