waiting for ornaments





So many Christmas trees lying around town, waiting for their ornaments. So much season's expectations packed in thin white net.

From another world: Maybe because I once was a diver, I was totally stunned by this underwater sculpture installation outside Granada, by Jason Taylor.

Here a TV-interview with the London based sculptor.

The atmosphere is the same as when walking around the garden of Villa d'Este outside Rome a misty winter's day. So much beauty by the efforts of human hands and so much beauty when nature claims the place back.

Have plenty of time now, feel a little confused and don't know what to do with it, like there is something I forgot.

That first line (about the trees in nets) is delicious and exacting. Beautiful poetry!

Undervattens utställningen är makalös!
Har du varit dykare, alltså har du dykcert?! Jag har en dykdröm :) nöjer mej med snorkling än så länge.

Thank you mansuetude! Not being in my own language is limiting, it's very encouraging whan you are so kind :)

Jajamänsan Camilla! Denna kropp har doppats både här och där men nu är det så länge sen att utrustningen säkert är livsfarlig och jag med, måste avrostas. Men erfarenheten är fantastiskt att ha med sig, och bilderna... Go for it!

Otroliga underbvattens bilder! Kommer nog att hamna på min blogg, för gud vad jag bara älskade dessa figurer under vattnet! Håller mig också till ytan ock kollar ner. (snorkling öppnar ju upp en helt ny värld)
Slog mig att i Köpenhamns kanaler så står det väl också någon figur, lite skumt upplyst?!
Ha det gött och blogga på!

I find the image of the trees in their nets beautiful but somehow it still makes me sad to think of all of them dying there.

Bibbi said...

Heather, I agree, the industrial scale makes me sad too.

there is something magical about seeing all these trees put together...they do look a bit bare!
