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

At The Zoo

Life imitates Art far more than Art
imitates Life. This results not merely from Life's imitative
instinct, but from the fact that the self-conscious aim of Life is
to find expression, and that Art offers it certain beautiful forms
through which it may realise that energy. It is a theory that has
never been put forward before, but it is extremely fruitful, and
throws an entirely new light upon the history of Art.
~Oscar Wilde. The Decay Of Lying: An Observation

Hola Carraol,
fotos preciosas, como siempre!
El destaque de esa serie es, sin duda, el rinoceronte: con su textura
y con el claro-oscuro hace recordar Rembrandt.

Buongiorno Carraol, art is innate in nature, just that sometimes we do not we see because we are too busy doing other things.
Many beautiful photos!

Animals are perfect, natural. And I do not like the idea of the zoos.
Hope you are OK and miss your posts.
