AUTUMN - A Question of Balance


















































I'm a melancholy man, that's what I am,
All the world surrounds me, and my feet are on the ground.
I'm a very lonely man, doing what I can,
All the world astounds me and I think I understand
That we're going to keep growing, wait and see.
When all the stars are falling down
Into the sea and on the ground,
And angry voices carry on the wind,
A beam of light will fill your head
And you'll remember what's been said
By all the good men this world's ever known.
Another man is what you'll see,
Who looks like you and looks like me,
And yet somehow he will not feel the same,
His life caught up in misery, he doesn't think like you and me,
'Cause he can't see what you and I can see.



For Dean

To call these photos marvelous is to understate their appeal. Amazing.

Hi...coming to you from Graphics Fairy! Love your photos..they are so beautiful...I especially like the old boat moored to the bank.
Thanks!

Fram Actual said...

She wanders far and wide with her camera and its magical lens.

The first two photographs are the most exquisite to my eyes, and the colors in the first make it especially radiant.

Water, with birds of the water and boats; woodlands with paths and roads, these always draw me toward them before all others and, sometimes, draw me into them. It seems almost possible to become part of many of your photos, Daliana -- to take a step or two and to actually be in the boat, for instance. Your work continues to astound me.

I found the song intriguing, too, and the video mysterious and beautiful. A great post.

ANRAFERA said...

Very visual photographies. I like very much the accused that you have applied to him, his light and tonalities.
My congratulations, they are marvellous.
A cordial greeting and good week.

fredamans said...

Very beautiful! The first two look like Matisse or Monet paintings.

Bibliotecaru said...

Chiar dacă nu se văd urmele mişcătoare ale nuferilor... se simte nevoia unor versuri eminesciene:

Lacul codrilor albastru
Nuferi galbeni îl încarcă;
Tresărind în cercuri albe
El cutremură o barcă.

Și eu trec de-a lung de maluri,
Parc-ascult și parc-aștept
Ea din trestii să răsară
Și să-mi cadă lin pe piept;

Să sărim în luntrea mică,
Îngânați de glas de ape,
Și să scap din mână cârma,
Și lopețile să-mi scape;

Să plutim cuprinși de farmec
Sub lumina blândei lune -
Vântu-n trestii lin foșnească,
Undoioasa apă sune!

Dar nu vine... Singuratic
În zadar suspin și sufăr
Lângă lacul cel albastru
Încărcat cu flori de nufăr.

Dear Daliana, I even don't know how to express myself when it comes to your new art work.

Suddenly all words are so small compare to what you are doing. And I am getting silent. To say beautiful about these pictures is to say nothing. To say fantastic is to say nothing also.

Your art opens my mind and soul and heart. And every time takes me by surprise. Yes, by surprise that you can see the world through your your eyes in such an amazingly beautiful way.

Daliana, I like you very much. You are absolutely fantastic artist and person.

I would like to thank you for your warm comments on my blog and my blogoversary. They mean so much to me.

Your world is a big world filled with so many interesting and amazing things. And be a part of this world makes me happy.

I am always here, Daliana. Most of the time I am invisible but I am still here looking again and again at your outstanding art.

Thank you for being Daliana who inspires many people and brings different world to them.

I am sending my love and the warmest wishes to you.

Have a beautiful and creative week!!!!!
