Snaps into the mind, just like those 3D images embedded in pictures that were very popular 10 years ago. After that, the tree all but vanishes.
vz-nostalgia: that would be a good mental excercise to turn the tree on and off in your mind, wouldn't it, Ray? smile
Great work, unusual image! Incredible see in your profile some many names of inspirational people I'd love: Crimson, Santana, Yes, Kirk, Mingus, P. Sanders, Satie, Glass, Nusrat, Shankar, Zappa, Bjork, Steig, Hesse, Vonnegut, Neruda, Garcia Marquez, A. K., Tarkovsky, Fellini, Woody, Modi & Klimt. Cheers from Mexico City.
vz-nostalgia: Looks like I found a soul mate in the heart of Mexico City. smile

Excellent picture, even if I thought that the emporer would have preferred a cherry tree smile
vz-nostalgia: the emperor has no choice, Louis. He has to enjoy whatever the landscape architect for the museum had in mind. smile

...The gods have spoken...
This is an incredible shot! Definitely one of your better works...maybe your ONLY good work! HA! I'm killin me! Very impressive perspective, now I need to go to the Atlanta Civic Ctr and see the exhibit! smile
vz-nostalgia: I see, the heavy look of the emperor messed up your mind, Danny. smile The King Tut exhibit is at the Civic Center. The First Emperor is at the High. You're too lazy to click on the link below the image, aren't you?
Amazing image, Viktor. I looked at it for ages before the background cliked into view. So clever! (:o)
vz-nostalgia: I'm afraid this Eureka! moment escaped quite a few folks who looked at this image, Ms. Roz. You're not alone. smile

spectacular ! nice decisions to make it so light and frameless
vz-nostalgia: smile It was very foggy that morning, Chris, hence the lightness.

vz-nostalgia: I'm ashamed to say, I haven't seen a single show of Monk, Lee. smile I guess, I need to netflix it.
I know one thing for sure, you'll be bored to death walking with me along Peachtree (unless we make frequent stops for a drink). smile
From an unpromising setting you have conjured a very fine picture Viktor.

They show Monk on satellite are not missing anythingtongue
vz-nostalgia: Oh, good. I can save a few bucks on renting DVDs then. smile

vz-nostalgia: Yep. That was the first signs of awakening of Spring, Ms. Philine, at the time, when I took the picture. The tree was full of flower buds after a couple of very warm weeks. Unfortunately, a recent wave of a very cold weather killed the buds.
I have not been to the exhibition as of yet. Can't testify about the fake solders. I'll let you know after I visit it next week.
Very impressive..this work is right up my street. Excellent.
vz-nostalgia: smile what a coincidence, Ronald. It's up my street too. The Peachtree Street. smile

It looks like a winter nymph is trying to hide from your camera!
vz-nostalgia: This nymph looks rather old, Kelly. smile Maybe that's why she's trying to hide her face behind the branches. smile Did you go to visit the exhibition?

Very cleverly taken and processed. Superb end result - this one's for publication
vz-nostalgia: Do you have any particular publication in mind, Ms. Ellie? Let's see. I can send it to "The National Journal of Forgotten Emperors", or to the "Emperors' Quarterly", or even better to the "Emperors Today". smile

vz-nostalgia: Oh, a sinner...Aha... Would you like me to give you an absolution, Ms. Reis? I'll be ready in a minute- let me change jeans and an old T-shirt to my brand new black priest's robe...
I'm listening, my child. smile
Do I see the first murmurings of Spring Vik?
vz-nostalgia: That's a question I have difficulty answering, Chris. I have to turn into Chris Phillips to say exactly what you see here. smile Some say, there is an Emperor in here somewhere. smile
Those first murmurings were short lived, Chris. I saw a flowering cherry tree, and a tulip tree with the ready to burst blossom buds around the office. They are so impatient. Everything was killed during a record low cold that swept through the South a few days ago.
vz-nostalgia: I'll tell you more, I have two good eyes. smile
I've never been to Japan either, but one day I will, when this country gets out of the financial ditch. smile
