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

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

Many thanks for your kind comments.
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...
Thank you for seeing him/her/it. I do so often.It is a joy to share what I see.

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.
