To be surprised, to wonder, is to begin to understand. This is the sport, the luxury, special to the photographer. The gesture characteristic of this tribe consists in looking at the world with eyes wide open in wonder. Everything in the world is strange and marvelous to well-open eyes. This faculty of wonder leads the photographer through life in the perpetual ecstasy of the visionary. His special attribute is the wonder of the eyes. Hence it was that the ancients gave Minerva her owl, the bird with ever-dazzled eyes. (with apologies to Jose Ortega y Gasset who was talking about "the intellectual man" in his 1930 book, Revolt of the Masses) CONTACT: click link symbol at upper right for my website with email address.

Hi, Boris.

'Seven feet of snow'! - that's outrageous!

Over here, we grumble at 7 millimeters. :o)

It's nice to hear that your area has missed the brunt of it, maybe in Buffalo they are all watching Norwegian T.V to calm down after shoveling tons of snow away (as they do in Northern Scandinavia.)

Of which, brings me around to 'slow T.V.'; - it was most amusing to read about it, my only reaction is, I won't be buying shares in these television companies, I just can't see the logic of their thinking; the ultimate conclusion would be watching the Universe expand to its thrilling climax ( in the series ending in a googol number!) :o)

It's nice to see the world through your eyes, best wishes, ~ D.

This caught my eye immediately -- Windows are a special love of mine. The patterns and colors of the pipes and wires on the building. . . and then those happy melon smiles!

Only after loving the photo for itself did I read your story. . . poignant in itself, but then, of course, it sent me into my own memories. This could be the cover photo on your memoir.
