I bet they are listening to the same tune. The sound of the wind maybe, or the sound of a swinging piano played by Mr. Ellington.
vz-nostalgia: Considering they are in the Garden of Nostalgia, most likely they listen to the Sounds of Fluttering Silence, Ms. Iris. smile

Cabaret...circa 1930.
vz-nostalgia: I guess the lack of color disqualifies it to be "Moulin Rouge" circa 1890. smile I have no choice but to settle on the Weimar Era Berlin cabaret a la Marlene Dietrich & Co. smile
"Such strange looking cinema seats" I thought when I first saw the smaller version of this photo.

A nice light, but it can not be helped: scenes like this just are Orwell 1984 to me.
vz-nostalgia: How would George Orwell know back in late 1940s (when he wrote the book) that 30-40 years later many realities (or better, surrealities) of the Soviet Union put his fantasies to shame. smile

There's discipline here Vik: perhaps obedience too?
vz-nostalgia: Berlin circa 1937? smile
a fine fern Viktor. Made to look like massed ranks marching
vz-nostalgia: That's what I just said to Chris. smile Berlin circa 1937, perhaps. smile
You have made my favorite plant a work of art. Wonderful!
vz-nostalgia: smile It was already a work of art way before I took the picture, Ms. M. smile

What a wonderful sight for sori.
vz-nostalgia: I had no idea what the word "sori" is until I looked it up, Alberto. You made my day with a new word. smile
With your title and and your image which looks moonlit, reminds me of a song that was played on the radio while I was driving, it was called Moonglow, I have heard it before in old movies. smile
vz-nostalgia: I see your radio is tuned to the Oldies, Ms. Linda. smile
I guess you heard this classic swinging jazz standard:
which Benny Goodman made immortal back in 1930s.

A ferny fan dance to titillate our gaze.
vz-nostalgia: How does it feel to be a voyeur, Mike? smile
Amazing detail ... you have such an eye.. I can hear the wind song.. Thanks for the welcome back..wonderful that you are all still here supporting each other.. have missed it.
vz-nostalgia: It's good that you're back, Ms. Gale, but more important question would be "what did you came back with?". smile Hope it's all good stuff. smile
Eeh, what are these things, Viktor?
vz-nostalgia: Err... These are the synchronized swingers, Thomas. smile

...hearing the smoothness of a thousand fingers dancing to the sound of skin...
vz-nostalgia: I see the poet in you cannot be contained, Ms. Lina. smile From time to time she sets herself free and lets you fly on teh magic wings of her fantasies. smile

vz-nostalgia: I assume you were a vivid reader of Fenimore Cooper's novels, when you were a kid, Ms. Stef. I bet you read at least "The Last of the Mohicans". smile
