A Face in the Crowd

“Every face, every shop, bedroom window, public-house, and dark square is a picture feverishly turned–in search of what? It is the same with books. What do we seek through millions of pages?” ― Virginia Woolf

Sweet? Sweetheart!

Mama was my greatest teacher, a teacher of compassion, love and fearlessness. If love is sweet as a flower, then my mother is that sweet flower of love. – Stevie Wonder

Weekly Photo Challenge – Waiting

Waiting

“For a long time, she held a special place in my heart. I kept this special place just for her, like a “Reserved” sign on a quiet corner table in a restaurant. Despite the fact that I was sure I’d never see her again.” ― Haruki Murakami,

Girl behind a door waiting to enter the room.

Weekly photo challenge – Bridge

swan monochrome monday

Erasmus Bridge Rotterdam

Oh, here we are at the bridge. I’m going to shut my eyes tight. I’m always afraid going over bridges. I can’t help imagining that perhaps, just as we get to the middle, they’ll crumple up like a jackknife and nip us. So I shut my eyes. But I always have to open them for all when I think we’re getting near the middle. Because, you see, if the bridge did crumple up I’d want to see it crumple. What a jolly rumble it makes! I always like the rumble part of it. Isn’t it splendid there are so many things to like in this world?” ― L.M. Montgomery

Transient flower

The flower bloomed and faded. The sun rose and sank. The lover loved and went. And what the poets said in rhyme, the young translated into practice ― Virginia Woolf, Orlando

Weekly phot challenge - Transient

An empty hospital. In every room traces of the previous  inhabitants. Children were born and people died.  A lost flower.  Transient in time.
