    A Magic Moment I Remember - Alexander Pushkin

    A magic moment I remember:

    I raised my eyes and you were there,

    A fleeting vision, the quintessence

    Of all that's beautiful and rare.

     

    I pray to mute despair and anguish,

    To vain the pursuits world esteems,

    Long did I hear your soothing accents,

    Long did your features haunt my dreams.

     

    Time passed. A rebel storm-blast scattered

    The reveries that once were mine

    And I forgot your soothing accents,

    Your features gracefully divine.

     

    In dark days of enforced retirement

    I gazed upon gray sky above

    With no ideals to inspire me,

    No one to cry for, live for, love.

     

    Then came a moment of renaissance,

    I looked up - you again were there -

    A fleeting vision, the quintessence

    Of all that's beautiful and rare.

     

    My heart is feeling celebration,

    I did remember it again -

    The aim to strive, the inspiration,

    And love, and life, and sweet heart pain.

      your pictures are very intriguing...are they composites of more than one photo? there is something very unusual about the perspective and depth of field in some of them
