Freedom, Viktor? There are various degrees of freedom, but absolute freedom is an illusion.
vz-nostalgia: ha, I discovered this back in 8th grade, Signora Professore. smile As long as you need to breathe, to eat and to drink you are not truly free. smile

"Free"...as in "nobody made me pay for it"?

"Free"...as in "tree" misspelled?

"Free"...as in park art the council refuses to pay for?

"Free"...as in sculpture without guidelines or restrictions?

"Free"...as in "finally divorced the brutal monster"?

"Free"...as in the 3 blue M&M's the nice man in the park said I could have?
vz-nostalgia: I see you got obsessed with this four letter word, Ray. smile Well, better to play with this one, than with another one that also starts with F. smile

Hopefully always VVik
vz-nostalgia: all relative, Chris. I was bitching about my shoes, until I saw a legless person. smile

What's free?
vz-nostalgia: You came to the wrong place to ask such a deep philosophical question, Ms. Helen. smile
Free house as in pub??smile
vz-nostalgia: Apparently, no one wants free stuff anymore, Nig. The rust took over the sign. smile

ansley park has quite a history - one of the first suburban neighborhoods designed for automobiles...with thanks to google smile i am very drawn to the house in the background.
vz-nostalgia: Curiosity will get you far, Ms. Eliza. smile You are probably the only person who asked herself "what in the world is Ansley Park?" smile It used to be suburban back in 1920s, now it's in the heart of Midtown, five minutes away from the skyscrappers of Peachtree Street and from my office. Quite a unique place.

I like the sentence:
"One persons freedom ends where another persons freedom begins" (Rosa Luxemburg?) Yes, a great, always important message!
After having lived some years in the old "DDR" where and when we missed some freedoms I know what 'freedom' is and I appreciate it as one of the highest goods!
vz-nostalgia: Rosa Luxemburg... Karl Liebknecht... oh my, Ms. Philine. You just threw me back in time, when I studied the History of the Communist Party. smile Funny that you quoted the words (which I kind of like) of the founder of the German Communist Party, while complaining about your DDR years at the same time. smile
My mind is free!
vz-nostalgia: Good. Now it's time to free your body, Ms. Stef. smile

Freedom is relative. One man's freedom can be another man's pain. But compared to many in the world, we don't know how lucky we are. This is a great image Viktor - the blurred house makes a great background for the bold rusty-coloured arc and of course, compositionally, it is spot on.
Ingrid
vz-nostalgia: Finally, someone talks about the photograph. smile
What does it represent VZ...you'll have to tell me!
vz-nostalgia: apparently, a house for grabs, Ron, but no one wants it and the rust took over. Want to try your chance? smile
Freedom is basically achieved through having discipline.
richard
vz-nostalgia: you must be still under the influence of Immanuel Kant, Richard. smile He talked a lot about the discipline of freedom in his works about Zen.
hmmmm if it was the car that made them free i feel their judgment was misplaced somewhere along route 66 Victorgrin

superb image thoughsmile
vz-nostalgia: A car did give America lots of freedom of movement, Tim, but gosh, how I hate this morning traffic. smile
I'm free for lunch tomorrow...
vz-nostalgia: I know, a lot of pretty women visit Nostalgia, Alan, but still, it's not the place for throwing a wide net like this in hope to fish something out. smile Try craigslist next time. smile

My guess is Free Parking. A rarity in cities.

I love it when Ray goes balistic.
vz-nostalgia: Your guess is as good as anyone else's, Louis. smile
It takes some effort to get Ray out of balance, doesn't it? smile
Viktor! You wound me deeply with your intimation. smile
Please note that I commented on my availability for lunch, not Breakfast! (And by the way, I'm still available for lunch...)
Enjoy your lunch today, Mr. V... lol
vz-nostalgia: LOL ...and so I did. smile
is that an edited snap?
vz-nostalgia: what do you mean by "edited", Kavita? If this is a composite, then, nope. That's how it was in the camera. If you mean it was processed in photoshop, then yes, it was as any other picture here. smile

Your mom never told you don't play with your food, Viktor? Cookies are for eating not for carving... smile

Was that the first English you learned to spell and made sure it'll carve into your heart as well for the rest of your life? smile
vz-nostalgia: I'm a natural born carver, Ti. I was suspended in school for carving on the top of my desk "The Beetles". Now I know I was suspended for misspelling. smile

I like the framing of the shot.
vz-nostalgia: My father was a good carpenter, Dotun, so I know a thing or two about framing. smile
