Nostalgia to a world long gone…

This photo represents nostalgia
To a world long gone where things
Were mostly slower & simpler but
Nobody knew,
Nobody had a parallel to compare…
Now we do 🙂

P.s
I am taking off for two weeks
To come back with more…
Thanks for your understanding 🙂

A while back I said I was going to post my very first firework experience in photography but was so busy after New year restoring my blog that it took me a while…
It needed about a hundred and fifty shots to capture these sixteen. I was astonished at the art shapes emerging from some of them & felt like sharing… curious of your opinion 🙂

Having restored the photos back in this blog I decided to take back the painting neglected (for a year+) to writing. I’m really happy to show off today the results of what I had started in 2012!! ( under post “Odyssey”) I’ll include photos from the 1st sketch onward.

This painting was based on a picture I saw & fell in love with…the clean lines, nuances of black, blue, white & the panoramic-like view.
I added my own interpretation, it’s one of a collection I started with Trek evolution, see…

In the future a few will be following in that Theme.

The four men represent us on our life journey (notice the lines on their back expressing laps of time) the 1st is bent & struggling under the weight of a big question mark the 2nd is slightly straighter with a smaller one in front of him, the 3rd is already much straighter with a tiny question at his feet & the fourth has none, stands straight, there’s light shining from the moon, no more questions…

All is flat peaceful & serene.

FRANCIS CABREL – L’ENCRE DE TES YEUX


Francis Cabrel is a massively popular french singer who has fallen under the French classics category.
I am a big fan of French or Italian songs with a poetical tendency in the lyrics but it takes a lot for me to want to post on this blog, there has to be that something extra, should it be in the crowd of a concert, the lyrics or the tune itself.
Here, in my opinion at least, there was a combination of words & tunes that just completed each other and made me want to listen to it a few times in a row!
I hope you’ll like it too 🙂
Lyrics with translation below…

Lyrics
L’encre de tes yeux

Puisqu’on ne vivra jamais tous les deux
Puisqu’on est fous, puisqu’on est seuls
Puisqu’ils sont si nombreux
Même la morale parle pour eux
J’aimerais quand même te dire
Tout ce que j’ai pu écrire
Je l’ai puisé à l’encre de tes yeux

Je n’avais pas vu que tu portais des chaînes
À trop vouloir te regarder,
J’en oubliais les miennes
On rêvait de Venise et de liberté
J’aimerais quand même te dire
Tout ce que j’ai pu écrire
C’est ton sourire qui me l’a dicté.

Tu viendras longtemps marcher dans mes rêves
Tu viendras toujours du côté
Où le soleil se lève
Et si malgré ça j’arrive à t’oublier
J’aimerais quand même te dire
Tout ce que j’ai pu écrire
Aura longtemps le parfum des regrets.

Mais puisqu’on ne vivra jamais tous les deux…

Translation
The Ink of Your Eyes

Because we’re never going to live together
Because we’re crazy, because we’re alone
Because there are so many of them
Even morality speaks for them
I would still like to tell you
For all that I was able to write
I drew it from the ink of your eyes.

I never saw that you wore chains
Out of wanting too much to look at you
I forgot my own
We dreamed of Venice and of freedom
I would still like to tell you
All that I was able to write
It was your smile that dictated it to me.

You will come walk in my dreams for a long time
You will always come from the side
Where the sun rises
And if despite that I end up forgetting you
I would still like to tell you
All that I was able to write
Will for a long time carry the scent of regret.

But because we’re never going to live together…

Lara Fabian – Je t’aime

D’accord, il existait d’autres façons de se quitter
Quelques éclats de verres auraient peut être pu nous aider
Dans ce silence amer, j’ai décidé de pardonner
Les erreurs qu’on peut faire à trop s’aimer
D’accord la petite fille en moi souvent te réclamait
Presque comme une mère, tu me bordais, me protégais
Je t’ai volé ce sang qu’on n’aurait pas dû partager
A bout des mots, des rêves je vais crier

Je t’aime, je t’aime
Comme un fou comme un soldat
Comme une star de cinéma
Je t’aime, je t’aime
Comme un loup comme un roi
Comme un homme que je ne suis pas
Tu vois, je t’aime comme ça

D’accord je t’ai confié tous mes sourires, tous mes secrets
Même ceux, dont seul un frère est le gardien inavoué
Dans cette maison de pierre,
Satan nous regardait danser
J’ai tant voulu la guerre de corps qui se faisaient la paix

Je t’aime, je t’aime
Comme un fou comme un soldat
Comme une star de cinéma
Je t’aime, je t’aime
Comme un loup comme un roi
Comme un homme que je ne suis pas
Tu vois, je t’aime comme ça

Je t’aime, je t’aime
Comme un fou comme un soldat
Comme une star de cinema
Je t’aime, je t’aime, je t’aime, je t’aime, je t’aime, je t’aime
Comme un loup comme un roi
Comme un homme que je ne suis pas
Tu vois, je t’aime comme ça

TRANSLATION:
Agree, there existed other ways of parting
A few debris of glass maybe could have helped us
In this bitter silence, I decided to forgive
The faults which we are done when loving so much
Agree, the small girl in me often claimed you
almost like a mother, you guarded me, u protected me
I’ve stolen this blood from you that we shouldn’t have shared
At end of words and dreams I’m gonna scream:

I love you, I love you
like a crazy, like a soldier
like a movie star
I love you, I love you
as a wolf, as a king
as a man that i’m not
you see, i love you like that

Agree, I trusted you all my smiles and secrets
Same those shameful, for which only a brother is the guard
In this stony house,
Satan watched us dance
I wanted so much the war of bodies which made the peace

I love you, I love you
like a crazy, like a soldier
like a star of cinema
I love you, I love you
as a wolf, as a king
as a man that i’m not
you see, i love you like that
