Zyryality: The Wall of Execution

 

...with my eyes closed

holding a bouquet of damaged dreams

like a shield of bullet-ridden

withered dry illusions

stand I at the wall of execution

waiting for the shout "Fire!"...

Just kidding, no doubt...a line of Old Blokes leaning on the bar and downing a few beers while jawing on about "the good old days"...ahh...the luxury of nostalgia...

Beautiful image, VZ.
vz-nostalgia: smile Why not. Your take on this is as good as anyone else's, Ray. smile
Background and lighting make for a great picture. Hope they don't get shot too soon, as I like looking at them.
vz-nostalgia: I have a deal with a firing squad. Keep looking, Nig. smile
And they have all refused a blindfold. The lighting on the leaves is lovely Viktor
vz-nostalgia: smile not only they refused to be blindfolded, they demanded, and were granted, the right to give the order to fire, Bill. smile
Nice leaf line.The look very hot.Never kill your dreams just execute them wink
vz-nostalgia: the wall turned red right before the squad has fired, Ms. Delia. smile

hmmmm, witches on a line waiting for the next broomstick. birds passing the time of day on a line, some standing on one leg, some on two. perhaps i've just had too much coffee this morning smile
vz-nostalgia: better start with too much coffee in the morning, than with too much whiskey, Ms. Eliza. smile Don't take an example from Ernest Hemingway. We all know how this one ended. smile
Fantastic! smile

vz-nostalgia: My pleasure, segnidiluce. smile
The firing squad is too late..they are already dead...But what a lovely image VZ. The colours and lighting are superb.
vz-nostalgia: Ah, you spoiled the suspence of the story, I so carefully built, Ron. smile

The aging process across the mind creates the script of fading poem.
The mind finds its philosophical joy in resemblance with nature’s cycle.
The concealed will leads consciousness to express the mirror, and this mirror is the reason for any art.
vz-nostalgia: :
AA: The aging process across the mind creates the script of fading poem.
VZ: Our western world is obsessed with youthfulness, leaving the beauty of aging way out of focus.
AA: The mind finds its philosophical joy in resemblance with nature’s cycle.
VZ: An inquisitive mind certainly does, Ms. AA.
AA: The concealed will leads consciousness to express the mirror, and this mirror is the reason for any art.
VZ: I'd argue with that. Mirroring reality was never a goal (or a reason) of art (with few exceptions like, say, a hyperrealism). I'd say, the better comparison would be a ray of a white light that goes through a glass prism and bursts into a rainbow of colors. smile

Lovely warm tones. I like the brown and the red, the light from below (presuming you haven't turned it upside down), and the title. Wonderful combination.
vz-nostalgia: I feel like I either scare folks with my dark poetry or leave them speechless, Mike. smile
The red kind of tilted background works very well. Somehow I feel like I'm flying, up-side-down, I like that smile
vz-nostalgia: The upside down flights are always dangerous and require a lot of skills, so be careful now, Aksel. smile

wondering what those 'damaged dreams' are about...
VZ: won't tell you
K.A.: sad

it is a 'firewall' haha
vz-nostalgia: Your dialog hit it about right, Ms. KA smile
A firewall... I like this idea. Only chosen are allowed through. smile

Oh good grief: I hope they're all saying their prayers Vik!
vz-nostalgia: can't promise that, Chris. They could be a wild bunch of atheists. smile
very good lighting here
vz-nostalgia: the colors are not bad here either, Ms. Chantal. smile

You alright? Reading that stuff is a bit scary.

They look like upside down tobacco leaves hung to dry - sorry stood up to dry.
vz-nostalgia: don't read this before you go to bed, Louis. If you do, I can't guarantee you a night of sweet dreams. smile
But I do have an idea of what kind of dreams/ illusions you'll have, if you roll a cigar out of them. smile

what rich colours and subtle textures - and some interesting words to complete the package.

Thank you for the thought on the beauty of ageing
vz-nostalgia: Nostalgia often comes in packages, Paul. smile
You are most welcome. smile

Nice frame!
Excellent angle!
Love the lighting condition!
Brilliant!
......... smile
vz-nostalgia: Hey, that is just a small part of the whole array of the cliche you used here, Mr. Ti. Where is my favorite "good crop" and "great colors"? I'd like to hear all of them at once. smile

Very powerful image.

yes Beth there is something very powerful to this image. Great shot VZ
vz-nostalgia: Now, if only we could define that "something", Ms. Angel. smile

Damn! No one came to my rescue? Now you know why I went to the dark side, Viktor....I feel loved over there. smile smile
vz-nostalgia: Going to the dark side of the rainbow, Ti? smile That is where folks usually go, when they are not loved. smile
Did you know that some genius paired Pink Floyd's classic "Dark Side of the Moon" with the classic "Wizard of Oz" movie. The funny thing is it worked, both music and lyrics wise. smile

I love this. The colors are so powerful. I don't think you need the poetry...it almost takes away from it.
vz-nostalgia: The poetry is optional, Ms. Beth. smile
wow
just excellent!
Cheers
Rob
vz-nostalgia: smile I see you didn't spend much time searching for the words, Rob. smile

comme une armée en ordre de marche !
vz-nostalgia: They won't march too far, rem la, the firing squad won't let them. smile
beautiful image,
the leaves look like they're taking a walk.
vz-nostalgia: Their first step will turn into the fall down from the branch into the oblivion, Ms. Toun. smile

C'est une très belle photo, Viktor.
Colour, background, lighting, all is great !
vz-nostalgia: You forgot to mention composition, Fabrice. smile
Da colore deduco molte esecuzioni!
vz-nostalgia: "By color I assume many executions!"
Unfortunately, in this world, there is no shortage in those who is willing to shoot for a small fee, Ms. Stefania.
Brilliant shot. The lighting and background are just very very very good!
vz-nostalgia: my pleasure, Ibrahim.
vz-nostalgia: The dance of death, Ms. Carole, in all its beauty. smile
'This and that, they must be the same
what is legal is just what's real
what I'm given to understand
is exactly what I steal
I wormed my way into the heart of the crowd
I wormed my way into the heart of the crowd
I was shocked to find what was allowed
I didn't lose myself in the crowd

Shot by both sides
on the run to the outside of everything
shot by both sides
they must have come to a secret understanding

New offences always in my nerves
they're taking my time by force
They all sound the same when they scream
they have to rewrite all the books again
as a matter of course

I wormed my way ...
Shot by both sides ...

'Why are you so edgy, Kid ?'
asks the man with the voice
one thing follows another
you live and learn, you have no choice

I wormed my way ...
Shot by both sides
I don't ask who's doing the shooting
shot by both sides
we must have come to a secret understanding

we must have come to a secret understanding...

Lyrics from Magazine( 70's Band from Manchester)

Seems to fit your image...?!
vz-nostalgia: I wormed my way into the crowd. Shot by both sides. Interesting. Never heard of them, Dave. The whole era of post-punk kind of passed by me, as I was graduating from art-rock (Crimson,Yes, Emerson...) into jazz back in late 1970s. smile
...Should have added that the track is called 'Shot by both sides'...
vz-nostalgia: found them on YouTube smile

One of my favourites, what drama! smile
vz-nostalgia: I'd even say a tragic drama, Ms. Nadia. smile
And it's not even St. Valentine's Day, or even the November depression... I guess nostalgia never goes off duty.
vz-nostalgia: The doors of Nostalgia are always open for those who crave it, Alan. smile
