cool texture on that wood. I am guessing this was part of a larger sign?

It is reminiscent of flower power from the 1960's. In my mind I hear 'Be' from the Jonathan Livingston Seagull album.

A very ominous two-liner you wrote there.
vz-nostalgia: Looking at these old lichens and wood, 1960s sounds about right, Louis. smile
Jonathan Livingston Seagull album? You must be talking about the breaker of older single ladies hearts Neil Diamond then. smile

This Be is past its best! Lovely lichens though Vik
vz-nostalgia: The BE maybe is past its best, Chris, but the lichens are at their prime. smile
vz-nostalgia: You are right, Ms. Delia. A broken bone might heal into a crooked one. Same goes for feelings.
"turn bad... just like this pic"? smile

I guess feelings are just like a paper. They cannot be perfect again when they're crumpled. You can flatten the paper and try to make it as straight as you can, but it will never be the same again.

The question is: was it ever meant to be the same?

Well, nothing's meant to stay the same and yet there's nothing new under the sun. It's all about the same old routine of everlasting change.

There will be an answer, let it be. Well, I hope so.

VZ: I had no idea you are a metalhead, Ms. Shirin and an "Eternal Tears of Sorrow" fan. smile
Shirin: I guess feelings are just like paper.
VZ: Well may be,Ms. Shirin, but you can crump the paper as much as like, it is still a paper. It is only when you burn it, it turns into teh ashes.
Shirin: ...the same old routin of everlasting change.
VZ: That's an interesting thought, Ms. Shirin. The only constant in this world is the change itself.
i was just about to say, but Shirin beat me too it lol, what a great comment and puts mine to shame so i won't say it smile

Great image Victorsmile
vz-nostalgia: There are always a few ways to say teh same thing, Tim. Learn from politicians. smile
Be what?
vz-nostalgia: To have a deep breath upon awakening, isn't it the most wonderful thing? Or to be alive is not enough for you, Ms. Chantal? smile
Staggeringly beautiful image Vik and interesting comment.
vz-nostalgia: Old wood has never let me down, Chad. smile
Oh! I love this one.
vz-nostalgia: Old wood and lichen... a win-win combination, which is hard not to love, Jide. smile
Fascinating image, Viktor - the lichen looks like flowers - well spotted!
vz-nostalgia: Well, maybe they think they are flowers, Tom, waiting for the magic to occur. smile

life's happy little secret
known well by the lichen
is life is to live
to live is to BE
all else is superficial
vz-nostalgia: Deep words of wisdom, Pat, worth to be etched in our brains.

Yes, My first thought was, "to be or not to be - that is the question", too often cited, but still a good word! I like your dialogue- ending with the word "BE" - this little, modest word 'to be' may be the most important word, we cannot speak and write anything without using it, and in all languages I know it is the verb with the most different forms- why?- it is a special word!
I like your pic, lichens or fungi (?) and moss are decorating the letters like flowers- this special word has deserved such an ornation! In this phase of decay and perhaps 'retirement' (out of function?) the broken wood and the word may look more beautiful than at their prime!
vz-nostalgia: smile
Philine: My first thought was, "to be or not to be - that is the question".
VZ: See, Philine, I can read people's minds, providing an answer on a not-asked question. smile
Philine: the broken wood and the word may look more beautiful than at their prime!
VZ: Absolutely, Philine. New wood is so boring. Old wood has so much character. smile Can we say teh same about human beings? smile
Potent flowers on a big word...
vz-nostalgia: ...or so they would like to think of themselves, Larry. smile

LOL, Just "Be"! I love it!!!

Is that lichen or mould? I love how they look like flowers! This is such a Hippie 60s vibe kind of photo smile

p.s thanks for your msg the other day for some reason I lost your link in my links so it was a good reminder to come visit!

p.p.s no my dslr still sucks. It's the camera....SOFT & BLUR. If I manage to produce a shot that is good I'll let you know, but in the meantime I can't be bothered to Photopshop some life into the image quality.
vz-nostalgia: smile
Zhen: Just "Be"!
VZ: Yep. Nothing less, nothing more, Ms. Zhen. smile
Zhen: Is that lichen or mould?
VZ: These are not flowers. That I know for sure. smile
Zhen: dslr still sucks.
VZ: I guess you tried it with different lenses. Well, sell it, then. Let someone else to deal with it. Maybe they could fix it by tuning a few things up.

hmmm, how much for a print? Not that I need any more Black and White for my Drab walls but...this photo is really applicable to me smile and might be very cool in my future clinic.
vz-nostalgia: :
Zhen: how much is for the print?
VZ: I'll send you a private email with sizes/prices.
Zhen: Not that I need any more Black and White...
VZ: Are you color blind, Ms. Zhen? smile This is a COLOR photograph. smile
Zhen: ...might be very cool in my future clinic.
VZ: What kind of clinic is that, Ms. Zhen? Well, let me guess. Something "new agey"... meditation... aromatherapy... massage... maybe accupuncture... maybe even chiropractic... smile

The lichen has decided to.

Lichen are not shrinking violets.

This is my current favourite in your splendid portfolio, VZ.

Ray: The lichen has decided to.
VZ: To our delight they certainly did. smile
Ray: Lichen are not shrinking violets.
VZ: Nor they are ubiquitous tulips or roses (blah). smile

a very interesting picture and thoughts....
let me paraphrase it a bit...

a broken bone takes time to heal
same goes for feelings
let 'us' BE...
to be or not to be
it'll always BE the question...
vz-nostalgia: smile If you think it will always be teh question, you got to shoot your own picture for your paraphrase, Ms, KA. smile
Well seen, well delivered.
vz-nostalgia: Well delivered? That will be a $1 tip for delivery, Ms. Dawn. smile
Old wood and!
vz-nostalgia: Good to see your play with the language, Ms. Stefi. smile
This is the existential question par excellence. Be- Be What? be Who? be Why? be When? etc.What would we do if we could not choose? Choose life.
vz-nostalgia: If J.-P. Sartre was still alive, do you think he'd sketch a short essay, a la "The Transcendence of the Ego", looking at this picture? smile

jolies matières.
vz-nostalgia: what were you most impressed with, Ms. Marie: wood, lichen or the letters? smile
this makes me just want to sigh...I love your images...but I really love the writing you add.
vz-nostalgia: For me it's all the same, Ms. Julie. They supplement each other. If I was skillful enough to write a piece of music to each picture, I would include it for the fullness of experience. smile
