The Magic of the Cities.

Zen promotes the rediscovery of the obvious, which is so often lost in its familiarity and simplicity. It sees the miraculous in the common and magic in our everyday surroundings. When we are not rushed, and our minds are unclouded by conceptualizations, a veil will sometimes drop, introducing the viewer to a world unseen since childhood. ~ John Greer

Theme Day: ShadowsswodahS

Vangelis. The Little Fete.

"I take a bottle of wine and I go drink it among the flowers.
We are allways three ... counting my shadow and my friend the shimmering moon.
Happily the moon knows nothing of drinking, and my shadow is never thirsty.
When I sing, the moon listens to me in silence. When I dance, my shadow dances too.
After all festivities the guests must depart. This sadness I do not know.
When I go home, the moon goes with me and my shadow follows me"

Love the Vangelis. Seems to set the mood perfectly. Two marvellous images - as always, Carraol! Your photography is inspiring. I love both but I adore the boy running - the movement - against the light and shade. Fab!

You do shadows and black and white brilliantly-- real weaknesses for us!

Every time your name appears, the word Caracol comes to mind!!! Gotta think, Carraol. What is the origin of the name?

p.s. wish you could hear the music playing on your website right now. Very jazzy and interesting. Great for this Friday afternoon happy hour.
