A clever product placement for v#iagra...

Let's not confuse "sin" and "pleasure"...

[I got a spam alert...]

Ray: Let's not confuse "sin" and "pleasure"...
VZ: ...and I don't. They often go together hand to hand. More often than most people would like to admit. smile

vz-nostalgia: smile I'd say, remotely connected, but still intimate, Chris. smile

I have a spam mail in my box with the subject title: "When small is a dirty word".
It seems to advertise a pill of some kind.

A very symbolic picture showing how the grass is deemed greener on the other side of the fence.

Scientifically proven that 'greener' is due to more manure on that side.
vz-nostalgia: smile
Louis: Scientifically proven that 'greener' is due to more manure on that side.
VZ: Scientifically proven that the most beautiful roses grow on a compost pile. smile
Ah, the Floating World - can`t wait to see if my history of art course covers this subject.

I will not be sharing my immediate gut reaction to this image, but I will tell you that, I swiftly sank to the mud on the bottom of this beautiful pond, when the reality of today`s tasks burst my imaginative bubble. Pre Bank Holiday shopping, and a pile of ironing certainly offer an alternative state of mind - but not in a good way! (:o)
vz-nostalgia: smile
Roz: ...can`t wait to see if my history of art course covers this subject.
VZ: I'm afraid you need to enroll onto a totally different course, Ms. Roz. The one that requires a lot of practice. smile

Roz: ...I swiftly sank to the mud on the bottom of this beautiful pond...
VZ: The mud at the bottom, otherwise known as silt, is a very fertile matter, Ms. Roz. The most beautiful and fertile valleys in the world were formed by it. So, don't be afraid to sink down to the mud. smile

Yes, the green of the lake looks very seductive (funny title) and I'm afraid I could get diving into this water - or a waterman/a mermaid might emerge from the depth...
"And this by her song's sheer power
Fair Lorelei has done."
Your fine photograph reminds me of a painting by Gerhard Richter I recently saw in Duisburg! Really breautiful! (The pill - associations are not mine ones - oh, you men!)
vz-nostalgia: smile
Philine: ...a waterman/a mermaid might emerge from the depth...
VZ: A waterman... hmmmm... a male mermaid... what an interesting concept, Philine. I've never heard of a waterman. I'm sure many women would embrace this idea with much enthusiasm. smile

Philine: Your fine photograph reminds me of a painting by Gerhard Richter...
VZ: I checked his website. What a fertile guy. He produced tons of paintings. Some I liked, others I din't. He's very versatile.
Eheheh v*iagra e antibiotico! Sicuro piacere e piacere sicuro!
vz-nostalgia: smile You are on the right track, Ms. Mela. smile
VERY nice composition!!
vz-nostalgia: oh my... To compliment me on composition is like to compliment me on breathing, Ms. Flash. It's only natural. smile

Lately I've been inundaded with pill and or extension! ads. It's nice to see that there are also other uses for them smile
vz-nostalgia: I doubt an extension ad in any artistic form will be of any use for you, Ms. Scarlet. smile

beautiful like a painting. i like how abstract it looks, but that it is completely real....makes me dream. i really like this one smile
vz-nostalgia: Yep. Completely real. smile As I mentioned to Chris Sciarone the other day, the most difficult part is to find that invisible line that divides reality and abstraction, Ms. Erika. smile

Alas, the poor floater gets limper the closer he gets...

Threesome in a linear way...who benefits from it the most? At least the one on the left had a full frontal view during the course while facing the other... smile

Apparently you caught them way after the act, for no more ripples are in sight... smile

Cool down, man, the heat is almost over, that should steer your mind away from all these "exciting thoughts" for a while, Viktor! Go eat some Chinese today, but no shrimp or crab, that'll make your drive even worse.... smile
vz-nostalgia: smile
YKW: Threesome in a linear way...who benefits from it the most?
VZ: Ah, this is such a selfish question, YKW. smile

YKW: Apparently you caught them way after the act, for no more ripples are in sight...
VZ: Before, during, after....All is an integral part of the same experience, YKW. smile

YKW: Go eat some Chinese today...
VZ: I'm all for it. "Royal China" or "Hong Kong Harbour"? Your pick. smile

No telling what one might catch from jumping into this kind of situation.
vz-nostalgia: As Russians like to say, Chris, "He who doesn't risk never gets to drink champagne." smile
The threesome is soon to become a twosome with the magnetic pull from the left and the other will be green with envy smile
vz-nostalgia: One never knows, Ms. Linda. You could be right. Not all magnetic pulls are the same. Some are stronger than others. smile
Doesn't look too good for taking a drink or is it just the lighting
vz-nostalgia: Does look good for taking pictures, though, Ms. Maid. smile

VZ: Scientifically proven that the most beautiful roses grow on a compost pile. smile
Louis: The roses are the lure to the other side. Step over and land knee-deep in the 'compost'.
Sumus semper in excretum sed alta variant.
vz-nostalgia: smile no need to step over, Louis. Smell the roses and keep going where you were going. smile

The two on the left are drifting away...drifting away...note the white ends turned toward each other...and away from the one on the right - a typical situation one can encounter in nature (wild ducks) or in a zoo (turtles), where two really would like to be left alone but there's another one hanging around adn there is no way to escape the tiresome third one as all three are stuck in the same pond/terrarium. Well, ducks have more choice, I guess :0)
vz-nostalgia: sweet jesus, Ms. Anastassia... I had no idea you have such an analytical mind. smile You must be spending lots of time on the ponds/ in terrariums lately. smile

ooh...pretty VZ! love the palette! *green ♥
vz-nostalgia: it's been a while since someone called me pretty, Ms. Zhen. smile
A splendid photograph, I like.
vz-nostalgia: my pleasure, FR54.

Nice, nice compo and nice colors.
I like it.
vz-nostalgia: smile Is that all you noticed, Ms. Olga? :=)

Fantastic, Viktor!
The sentinels are ready for whatever will come next.
vz-nostalgia: They will remain ready even if the next will never come, John. smile
The original and its reflection could be a good metaphor for the complicity that exists between sin and pleasure.
vz-nostalgia: I guess you hit the bull's eye here, Armando. It's not always either black or white as most people like to think. smile

I'm not, but in the last five and a half years I have visited every zoo I could find on our peregrinations from St. Louis,MO to Oxford, MS, to Champaign, Il.
vz-nostalgia: We have a zoo in Atlanta as well (with a few pandas). Come over, Ms. Anastasia. smile
I often I see cars with a bumper sticker "I Belong To The Zoo" on our roads. Sometimes, considering teh craziness of local drivers, I want to scream: "Yes. Yes. You Do!" smile
Too big a pill to swallow!
vz-nostalgia: Then don't, Nig. Big pills are not for chicken. smile

I´m sorry, you are right is a short comment for a risky image.
I like strong process if result is something that tell thinks to person who is watching. Your image remember me ancient time on edge of a river on a summer afternoon. Maybe nostalgia is about this?
vz-nostalgia: I was just teasing you, Ms. Olga. smile You can write whatever you want and how much you want on Nostalgia, just stay away from praises. smile
Nostalgia is about different things for different people, Ms. Olga. For some it's a leaf floating on teh river on a summer afternoon. For others it's an open flower soaked in honey. Some seek for silent words between the lines... smile
Beautiful composition. Great colours. Congratulation.
Sinful or not, I love the colors. Is that wrong? smile
vz-nostalgia: Nothing is wrong, until you step on teh path of praises, Ms. Di. smile
wonderful richness and depth in this; very atmospheric and intriguing.
