Falling Thru The Lens ... Goodbye...
Falling Thru The Len…
Lovely stillness, like the peace we imagine in another time, before life became so hectic ...

Lian has replied to Falling Thru The Len…
It's so hard for us to go back to "old" time or "old" world that we have to keep (or sometime "create") them by memory or pictures... Thank you, Jacki!

Falling Thru The Len… has replied to Lian
I think that's one kind of magic art offers us ... creating what we never had. Good thing, too :-)

Perhaps a little sombre in B&W, Lian; Issa was mourning the loss of his son but yet ..oh and yet ..life is there ..and hope and beauty.. :) ;-)

Ah, I had never expected there would be post about Kobayashi's poem on Ipernity berfore I saw your link :-) I like the Frech translation. It's quite similar in structure with a popular Chinese version - "我知道这世界 / 如朝露般短暂 / 然而,然而“ - not so literally, but touching. While taking this picture, I was discussing Yukio Mishima's The Temple of the Golden Pavilion (金閣寺) with a friend. I guess that's the reason why the picture looks a bit depressing ... but sure it's unfair for the beautiful architecture ;-)

Leonora has replied to Lian
Um ..I see ..strange misconception..There's a whole collection of haiku in my Iperspace ;-)
Yes, the great Mishima of course, known as much for his horrendous suicide as for his books ..
As it is, the "gold" of the Kinkaku-ji is invisible here you see...
As for translating haiku poems ..a lot has been written about this perilous task :))
Have a nice day!

Lian has replied to Leonora
Okay, I guess you are right about the color of Kinkaku-ji. So I posted something golden and light-hearted :-)

Hiave a nice weekend!

The B/W treatment is akin to Daido Moriyama's; full of impact.

Lian has replied to NGC300
It's a great honor for the picture to be compared with Daido Moriyama's work. But what I really want to say is - SO HAPPY TO SEE YOUR WORDS AGAIN :-))

Leonora has replied to Lian
Moriyama and a classic still landscape? lol ..somehow I have great difficulty in imagining it ..:)))
So many great Japanese photographers are B&W masters..
