Would be nice to see Venetian window blinds like this.
vz-nostalgia: Make it happen, Ray. I won't charge you for the idea. smile
Oh, my. That is wonderful. What great tones.
vz-nostalgia: it's been a while since I saw you on Nostalgia, Mike. smile

you have the most magical garden viktor, think i've said that before smile i know its also in the eye, of the viewer, but you make the simple things so beautiful. although i would add that the beauty is often always there isn't it, we rarely take the time to stop and see it smile
vz-nostalgia: there is a grain of truth in an old cliche'd "stopping and smelling the roses" saying, isn't it, Ms. Eliza? smile

Oh, Vik, your garden must be a paradise! "Pellucid Poetry of Simple Plants", I would say! I like the olive-green, apart toning with a touch of lovely morbidity (Oh, an English word, I don't know?)!
vz-nostalgia: People usually talk poetry, when they look at exotic flowers, Ms. Philine. This is just an ordinary simple leaf. Besides, good prose is always better than bad poetry. Hope you would agree on that. smile

Amazing photo Viktor.
vz-nostalgia: what is it that you find so amazing about it, Shannon?
Great pattern Viktor.
vz-nostalgia: Let's thank God for creating it, Ms. Bernie. smile

My first reaction to this herbal Rorschach is a long slender legs in tight blue jeans.
vz-nostalgia: you speak the language that every hot blooded man understands, Mark. smile
The leaf is great but the background is a little distracting
vz-nostalgia: In this case, just ignore teh background, Bill. smile

As a privileged visitor to Viktor's garden, I can tell you it is spectacular, especially this time of year. He and his family have an abundance of healthy fruits and vegetables right outside their door. Still awaiting the arrival of the estate-bottled Zyryanovintages.
vz-nostalgia: Asian pears and figs are in season, Chris. Come over for a treat. smile Time has not arrived for the Zyryvintage yet, but keep your nose to the wind. smile
Its a fine image Zeb...and nicely detailed.
vz-nostalgia: It must've been a hard day, Ron, if you managed to confuse my photography with Zeb's. smile Or after a couple of shots of whiskey it doesn't really matter? smile
How stunning! Wondeful capture Vik
vz-nostalgia: careful with superlatives, Ms. Lyndah. If you keep visiting Nostalgia, you might run out of them fairly soon. smile

beautiful crisp shot !!
vz-nostalgia: crispiness... Is this a must for a photograph to be beautiful, Ms. Mallory? I think Susan Burnstine would disagree with you smile
Good Lord! This is so so good!
vz-nostalgia: I see you are lost for words, Toye. smile I'll wait until you find a few. smile

a beautiful simple usual Mr Viktor..
elegant black and white..
have a good time
vz-nostalgia: with age I find more and more beauty in simple things, Ms. Clo. smile
There are no simple plants--the closer you get, the more complexity you see...
vz-nostalgia: That's a very good thought, Larry.
On other hand, we have to recognize the line between being simple and being simplistic. smile

This bothers me...too neat! Not a single scratch, dirt or anything to it, looks like it's been washed and cleaned down to every absolute contrast to you, Viktor! Why can't you be like the leaf?... smile
vz-nostalgia: I've been through so much sh@t in my life, I will never be able to wash it out, Ti. smile
Unbelivable man!
vz-nostalgia: You better believe it, Lulian. smile
Wonderful details. the processing is perfect for this type of photo.
vz-nostalgia: and what type of photo is that, Ms. Kay?
Hmm very good, I find your responses to comments especially entertaining.
vz-nostalgia: In this case, next time you are on Nostalgia, skip the picture and go straight to the reading part, Rory. smile

très beau graphisme.
vz-nostalgia: I won't argue with that, Ms. Marie. Nature is the best graphic designer known to mankind. smile

Such a quality is a gift ! Thks*
vz-nostalgia: Nature often presents us with gifts, Ms. K@. The problem is not many of us could see them as such.
Apparently, you do. smile

vz-nostalgia: I was a big fan of the Wabi Sabi concept long before I even heard about it, Ms. Ingrid. smile A few of us, young architects, used to go to remote villages in Siberia to buy from the babushkas beautiful, but useless for them old cracked wooden bowls, not working copper samovars, old woodworking tools... They were happy to get rid of the junk and even get a few roubles for it. smile And we were happy to collect the samples of the lost art of the real craftsmanship. smile
My only excuse for this "perfect" picture is I have plenty of "imperfect beauty" on the other pages of Nostalgia. smile
This is very striking! Great shot!
vz-nostalgia: very simple too, MS. Maimuna. smile
