Elegant!
vz-nostalgia: that's the way they are.
A brief glory.
vz-nostalgia: Their 15 min. of fame, so to speak. smile

It'll all come back...
vz-nostalgia: It will. The question is, are we going to be around to enjoy it, Chris. smile

I guess it will all be repeated next year ;o)
vz-nostalgia: ... until one year it won't, Mike. All things must come to end.
I like.
vz-nostalgia: ...and there is nothing I can do about it, Ms. Steffi. smile

Perfect beauty is so short-lived. We should enjoy it while we can. The shadows of the stamens are so delicate.

vz-nostalgia: Wasn't it Socrates who once said "beauty is a short-lived tyrany"? I wonder what he meant by that.

what a sweet way to start a new day!!!
definitely Arvo Part's composition could fit well with this 'composed' picture...
'Spiegel I'm Spiegel' for example... wink (i'm listening to it while staring at your 'ode to life' and i'm really enjoying them both...)

Ode to Life
Every beginning
has its end
as every night
has its own day
all the flowers
expect for rain
as all the lovers
afford their pain...

black and white
near or far
love or hate
born and die
facts are facts
while it lasts
enjoy this ode
this ode to life....(K.A., 2009, inspired by two minimalists..hmm maybe i'm also one wink )
vz-nostalgia: you keep surprising me, Ms. K.A. This time by your knowledge of minimalism in music, and Arvo Part in particular. Actually, I was listening to his music while working on this image yesterday. smile
A pain of being a lover... hmmmm... that sounds a bit masochistic, don't you think? smile

Yes, a very delicate pic, beauty pure, the blossoms look so light, so gentle, and so "duftig-luftig"- your photo might be a love-homage to the hedge-rose (?)- not by words but by lighting, toning, and composition! This is a pic for Kathryn! Where might she be now?
vz-nostalgia: Yes, Ms. Philine. It's a dog rose (rosa canina) that grows on the side of our house.

Such a wonderful escape from my dark side to this bright , beautiful side smile)
Should I stay here today , or save it as my desktop picture smile)
vz-nostalgia: You are welcome to stay here as long as you want, Ms. Mariana. There is plenty of good coffee, I think there is some Glenlivet whiskey left in the bottle and, of course, there is no shortage of nostalgia. Feel yourself at home. smile
your garden never seizes to give us pleasure Victor, very nice indeedsmile
vz-nostalgia: It continually changes, Tim, giving me endless opportunities and pleasures. smile

well, mr VZ...Actually, i'm surprised you were surprised...as i thought you were kind of 'unsurpriseable'... lol
now, i owe my 'knowledge' on minimalism (and Arvo Part in particular) to a good friend of mine...oh! he's also russian...what a coincidence!!! wink
now:
vz: "Their 15 min. of fame, so to speak..."
vz: "The question is, are we going to be around to enjoy it, Chris"
vz: "... until one year it won't, Mike. All things must come to the end. "...
k.a.: that sounds a bit 'fatalist' don't you think? smile
and finally, my comments on
vz: "... pain of being a lover... hmmmm... that sounds a bit masochistic, don't you think? "
k.a.: well, mr VZ i think it deserves another picture to be commented...but let me tell you i was referring more to the `pain of loving`...(no more comments..by now..)
vz-nostalgia: well, Ms. KA
KA: that sounds a bit 'fatalist' don't you think?
VZ: and "every beginning has its end..." doesn't? smile
KA: i was referring more to the `pain of loving`...
VZ: the "pain of loving" usually takes place, when love is a "one way street", Ms. KA. smile

I'm interested in the coincidence theory very much. Tell me more about that Russian friend of yours. You can use my private email for that.
unwritten paper petals
vz-nostalgia: virgins, waiting to be broken into with your poetic words, Ms. Dori. smile
This macro is a pure beauty , lot of sweetness and softness , what a pleasure for my eyes

thanks !
vz-nostalgia: Hope it's not too sweet for your taste, Jean-Luc. LOL It is right at the limit for me. smile
VZ: virgins, waiting to be broken into with your poetic words, Ms. Dori.
Dori: you will laugh viktor but i am really very stupid when it comes to poetry...i just don't get it
vz-nostalgia: That is very unfortunate, Ms. Dori. Life without poetry is like a rainbow without one color- looks kind of the same, still a rainbow, but something is missing.

ps. for a second I thought you said "I'm really very stupid, when it comes to... virgins" I almost fell from my chair. LOL
hahaha... i guess i prepared you for the worst with that "you will laugh viktor..."

and about poetry, i will replace that missing colour with a philosophical one can't have it all smile

and now i am thinking...do i want to write something on those virgin petals?
vz-nostalgia: :
Dori: i will replace that missing colour with a philosophical one...
VZ: the philosophical color is already there, Ms, Dori. smile
Dori: do i want to write something on those virgin petals?
VZ: At times silence tells us more than a waterfall of words, Ms. Dori. smile
Dori: i will replace that missing colour with a philosophical one...
VZ: the philosophical color is already there, Ms, Dori.
dori: i meant:
will replace that missing colour with a philosophical (sigh) "one can't have it all"
but now i am thinking about philosophical colours...

Dori: do i want to write something on those virgin petals?
VZ: At times silence tells us more than a waterfall of words, Ms. Dori.
dori: smile
beautiful, we should always stop and enjoy the things ...and people around us.
vz-nostalgia: Yes, we should... smile and now, Ms. Toun, make a first step from this wonderful theory to a practical action. smile
Delicate and intense picture...!
vz-nostalgia: Oh, my. You dig pretty deep into Nostalgia, Ms. Elisa. I guess, it's been a while since you stopped here. smile
