Fly with me - Holiday in Greece











 Into the distance, a ribbon of black
Stretched to the point of no turning back
A flight of fancy on a windswept field
Standing alone my senses reeled
A fatal attraction holding me fast, how
Can I escape this irresistible grasp?
Can't keep my eyes from the circling skies
Tongue-tied and twisted Just an earth-bound misfit, I
Ice is forming on the tips of my wings
Unheeded warnings, I thought I thought of everything
No navigator to guide my way home
Unladened, empty and turned to stone
A soul in tension that's learning to fly
Condition grounded but determined to try
Can't keep my eyes from the circling skies
Tongue-tied and twisted just an earth-bound misfit, I
Easy on the brakes. Take it easy. Its gonna roll this time.
Just hand the power gradually, and it...
Above the planet on a wing and a prayer,
My grubby halo, a vapour trail in the empty air,
Across the clouds I see my shadow fly
Out of the corner of my watering eye
A dream unthreatened by the morning light
Could blow this soul right through the roof of the night
There's no sensation to compare with this
Suspended animation, A state of bliss
Can't keep my eyes from the circling skies
Tongue-tied and twisted just an earth-bound misfit, I

Spectacular photography--

Birds radiate delight, we normally do not know birds "up close and personal", you have taken us to their world of beauty, and the miracle of creation. The view of the seagull from all angles is superb, and sublime. Love Pink Floyd.

Hello Ms or Mr WIND. Your camera is like a violin, subjects are like notes (composed by God!), and your resulting photos are ensuing (and soothing) music. You play the music, having practiced, and learned how.

You do this SO WELL! But your crowning glory (hmmmm?) IS that you take the time to share your talents, your career, with all who wish to partake. And I do! (So you are NOW on my sidebar also, thank you BTW--an honor for me.

So much on my mind to say, I'll simply make another comment. How's THAT?

steveroni said...

...OK! ...On your gallery blog I could not find a comment area, but...

Forever and ever I could live here: Paleokastritsa - Corfu Island--that house on the hill, oh my! What a place to Have small musicals, quartets, chamber music--as was meant to be...invite friends, with instruments, WOW!

My violin sounds good
In a house built of wood
(I should write a song!)

Now about 'Learning to Fly', for me it is new...I listen very seldom to music (a musician, ha!).

"A soul in tension that's learning to fly" (Oh, MY!)

and

"There's no sensation to compare with this" (Oh, bliss!)

All I can say is THANK YOU for showing me a glimpse (Greek word?) of another world. Yours!

Claudia said...

Cred ca ai avut o vacanta pe cinste, iar pozele sunt foarte frumoase! Se pare ca ai jucat si in hora pescarusilor pe Marea Egee...

Lyrics of Love and Lore said...

In the depths of our human psyches is buried the overwhelming desire to soar like the birds. You have captured that desire in your work.
Thank you.

Nu știu de ce păsările acestea minunate îmi par întotdeauna mult mai spectaculoase în fotografii decât în„viață”.Probabil că zborul lor este fotogenic în mod deosebit.Superbe sunt fotografiile tale una și una !

@Seo - pai am fost departe...

@Joanny - the plece where those birds live is my favorite place...I would like to live on that ferry...

@Gabriela - da, e un loc spectaculos

@Joop - Yes, I took like 600 photos in half an hour

@Richard - Thank you!

@Klaudia - yes, unique!

@Bitch - I like Greece very much, but I like to travel and my heart is split in pieces...one for each place! Thank you!

@Mahon - Yes, not very easy to take!
Thanks!

@Silje - Thank you

@George - Fotografiile sunt facute pe un ferryboat intre Thasos si Kavala acum 2 saptamani. Pescarusii zboara cu aceeasi viteza cu vaporul...Oricum, greu de prins!

@Robert - da, acolo e un loc frumos! Ti-am mai spus ca mi-ar place sa locuiesc intr-un ferryboat?
Ok...o sa ma ocup de banner-ul ala!

@steveroni - Wind has no name...ha ha! Well, I would like to thank you for this wonderful words! You write like a poet even if I know you are a musician! Anyway, poetry and music is one!Thank you very much, a honour for me to have you here, too!
@steveroni - Somewhere there, on each photo, up-right, it is the places for comments in my gallery!
But...it is ok here also. My gallery is only a resumee of what you can find here! Ok...You have to go there in Corfu, to see!
Your violin will get inspired by that place!Thank you, again!

@Claudia - eh, toate vacantele sunt frumoase...din pacate in insula Corfu a plouat si a trebuit sa plec repede spre insula Thasos!
Pescarusii aia si ferry....e locul meu preferat!

@Lyrics - yes, deep in my soul I am a bird even if my name is wind!

@se-cret - eh, da...Pasarile sunt subiecte delicate...greu de prins...! Ele reprezinta zborul...de aia poate unele fotografii iti plac asa mult!

Tommy Andre Nekkoy said...

I wish I could fly like these birds, and have you to take pictures of me - hehe

I love the clarity and detail in these photos, and of course sense of freedom.
BTW, sorry, didn't find your lost memories, but there's lots of hidden spots out there so I'm sure they're lurking somewhere :)
