Who was Cassandra?


  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.

Rob sent me over to your place. I must say I'm glad I came. This amazing article allowed me to see that photography whether of landscapes, seascapes or whatever does complement poetry. This I must say, you have communicated your thoughts in this article with profound clarity.

Shall be back so until
Cheers

Tony, I agree with what you've said so eloquently on this subject, apart from one thing: those tourist shots can be, occasionally, something out of the ordinary, if a particular tourist has that kind of eye, that kind of non-consumerist appreciation of what he/she sees. And the equipment used may indeed be the simplest point-and-shoot camera.

Your photo at the top of the page is.....yes, sublime, in the proper sense of the word.

A very thought-provoking post, thank you
Strangely, when I first saw that picture I thought it was an angel with wings out-stretched

Paterika:
Many thanks for your kind comments.
Natalie:
Many thanks also. I agree with you completely. I guess there are exceptions to every rule. But appropriation would seem to be honoured more in the observance than the breach...
Mouse:
