"Thus spoke the raven never more", or what Visar? ;-)

I only try to get some close relationship to the work of all you guys around, Visar. I really don't have any kind of clue about being something like a "refined thinker", really! I only try to push away my own thoughts, experiences, life.. whatever, when I see an image - it's much like trying to see with your eyes, or with the eyes of anybody else. It is good because then I can understand all you guys out there perhaps a bit better.

But yes, that kind of all too comforting thinking and not being able to jump over the own shadow... well, it's limiting, it's boring, and at the end it's depressing too. Once you get stuck onto anything "wellknown" and "well established" you really start stagnating. So a certain amount of decoupling from the own impressions is necessary, I guess, or we pretty much also may end up as isolated islands around, which I would find very sad.

So, just keep up transfroming thoughts to images, or songs, or whatever. At least one guy will take the time to examine them a bit closer - but I think not always manage to also reach your point of view. But for this case we have the messages here too.

... and if there's something i apprechiate beoynd anything mmmm... i dont' know what, is the subjectivity of a refined thinker, like you, Nick. and even more, if a thought of mine made flesh triggers that!!

you know they say that these black birds are amongst the most intelligent birds, perhaps so intelligent that surpass us!! and perhaps, only perhaps, they might have even broken away that what we cannot, and reached there where we did not! but that's just our mind that drills to deeper and deeper as if being a curse for noncomfort... tough, then, comfort is boring- despite all there is, summing it up into a definition no matter how well observed- still, said as much as unsaid. and here i come to that subjectivity you mention, this way we contribute into the well of truths.

Black birds show him the way - this is what jumps into my mind when I see that. An old song, sung by Nikos Xilouris so many years ago. And so I really can't be absolutely objective in this one, since remembrance of a strong song is always something very special to me.

I admire the fidelity of your birds! Though they are so far away they still carry all necessary detailed photographic description for realizing at once that they are birds. The sky on which they are burned is a depressing one - and that's good! It is good because it generates the necessary mood of looking for realizing that this is no "look and smile" image. When the sky makes up such a depth, then something is going on - and your sky does generate depth here. Incredible depth, I must say!

At first I was inclined to say that the pole at the bottom right could be as well cloned off - but no! It functions like a reference to the reality right here, on the earth, with us, people that cannot break away. And so the observation of the black birds becomes a heavy side. It looks to me like the nostalgia to reach what we know that we will never reach.

A very authentic one, Visar! I don't know why I hear the music in my ears, a song with the distinct singing of Xilouris.

... black birds show him the way
he carries the tattoo on his shoulder
a sign secret and essential
that he escaped from Hades and from world...

As I told you, I couldn't be objective here. I hope you can excuse me.

I really like this one!
well captured, right timing & as usual I like the little details you include in the shot, like the light pole on the corner, supports the tittle, "part of a city"
well done again.

Thank you so much for posting such moody and a bit somber piece,Visar..
Very nostalgic for me,because I grew up in a town where you would see this image twice a day,at dawn&dusk-only in opposite directons-...

thanks Tony for the detailed comment, i do really apprichiate it; though, the edges i did not burn, it is the objective!


Pablo Dylan Pablo Dylan   {K:63918} 1/14/2008
Great atmosphere.
Excellent capture.



Tony Smallman   {K:23858} 1/14/2008
Nice contrast between Natural and Urban worlds.I don't think the burning in,in the corners,realtly adds anything to the image,which is beautiful in itself.
Best W2ishes, Tony
