comme sorti d'outre tombe !
vz-nostalgia: You have a vivid imagination, rem_la. smile
the poem seems to describe the normal circle of life, that's what we all go thru - like this leaf, the only difference is how we deal with all the drama and comedy in our life, do we still have faith or not after all? Love the shot!
vz-nostalgia: I guess, it depends on the definition of "normal", Ms. Delia. For some the drama is where to get some milk and bread for their kids, for others not being able to buy a large screen plasma TV. smile

Amazing how we always see aspects of our human selves mirrored in nature. Makes you wonder if there is some grand plan in the universe after all. I like this image a lot - very well balanced with subtle colours.
Ingrid
vz-nostalgia: I like your thought about the Grand Plan, Ms. Ingrid, even though it sounds like something from a conspiracy theory book. smile
yes, autumn sence to this one
vz-nostalgia: yep. Then winter comes. Who survives, will see the joy of spring, who doesn't, will join the circle of life. smile
I think you have served up a real gem for your 200th picture.
vz-nostalgia: 200? Already? oh my. I'm a prolific blogger, am I? Got to slow things down a bit. smile

Do I see flood waters on Peachtree Circle, Viktor? If so, Broken Lips needs to hang on for dear life and believe in life after death!

Ginnie: Do I see flood waters on Peachtree Circle, Viktor?
VZ: Nah, Ginnie. This is in the aftermath. During the flood earlier this week Peachtree Circle turned into a rough river.

Like the title, VZ.
vz-nostalgia: At least I didn't disappoint you in this area, Ray. smile

This is really beautiful Viktor. I can almost feel the water flowing over my fingers!!
vz-nostalgia: Many people in Georgia felt the water running through their fingers this past week during the flood, Shannon. smile

or it could be...
'...renewed
............recovered
......................back
to the great game of life
always keeping a smile
always reaching the stars
always holding tight on the circle of...' (k.a.)

but then the heading couldn't be: 'broken lips'..uh??

this picture goes well to celebrate i didn't have to work today ...weeeeeeeeeehhhhh!!!

i really loved the picture...
Приятных выходных

KA: but then the heading couldn't be: 'broken lips'..uh??
VZ: Neither it would be Nostalgia, Ms. KA. smile
...and you are still full of little surprises, Ms. KA. smile
I love the intimacy between the leaf and the water ... both relevant to each other.

A great composition and the colours and light are magical.

How does the black and white version work.

vz-nostalgia: I guess I was so absorbed with the color working on this photograph, I haven't even thought of a b&w conversion, Richard.
Oh, material needs at different levels is nowadays normal, I was not reffering to that kind of life aspect, but to the change of feelings we go thru in the circle of life.
vz-nostalgia: :
Delia: Oh, material needs at different levels is nowadays normal...
VZ: Normal? Try to explain this to dying kids in Somalia. You know, Ms. Delia, when I was much younger, I laughed at Karl Marx with his dialectical materialism ("the material is primary"). Now, when I've seen it all, I see that old man had a point. A hungry mother with a bunch of hungry kids doesn't give a sh@t about dadaism, impressionism, cubism and other -isms, until she and her kids are clothed, shod and not hungry. smile
Delia: I was not reffering to that kind of life aspect...
Vz: I know, I know, Ms. Delia... We all react differently to the hardships of life. Some are born to be fighters, others are born to give up. smile

Oh, I love these broken lips . You know they look like kissed for all long night, roughly and softly smile There is no more lipstick on them, but only some bruises, and marks of sharp teeth !
They still look beautiful and even fuller smile)
vz-nostalgia: Despite all the adversities, you remain a stubborn romantic, Ms. Mariana, and I like that. smile
Esta imagen es poesía sin artificios.
Labios morenos pero rotos.
Labios húmedos pero perdidos.
Lovely but sad image.
Nice smile.
vz-nostalgia: I see you write sad poetry as well, Armando. smile It is perfectly appropriate on Nostalgia. smile

The 'lips' reach out from the background, which is what is powerful here (other than the textural relief). But I can't help seeing shades of a Dali seat- however more seductive this might be.
vz-nostalgia: Did you mean Dali's red sofa, Ms. Jamoula? I doubt these broken lips can withstand even the lightest of butts. smile
This leaf is damaged
vz-nostalgia: You must be kidding. By whom? smile
nice processing
vz-nostalgia: Oh, I processed it alright. Doesn't look like a photographic diarrhea, does it, Ms. Chantal? smile
great image and caption.....
perfect
Cheers
Rob
vz-nostalgia: You keep forgetting that Nostalgia is a praise free zone, Rob. smile
