Anything goes for 2021 - Fragile
These dried hydrangeas are a couple of years or so old now so are very fragile. The little vintage books are also very fragile. I bought them at a street market in Berlin a few years ago. They made it all the way home until our taxi driver dropped my bag, everything fell out and one of the books fell apart.
I decided on a desaturated vintage look to enhance the fragility.
the wonders trapped in books,
liberated by our imagination.

“The cost of reading, even if you buy books instead of borrowing them and take in a fairly large number of periodicals, does not amount to more than the combined cost of smoking and drinking.”

Was man eben so zu einem gelungenen Feierabend braucht: Einige gute Bücher und einen guten Whisky!
Been pondering why we see so little still life in B&W, I'm guessing it's because it's not always immediately eye catching so maybe doesn't attract as many likes! Oh well, I like it :)
Why not head over to the Definitely Dreaming blog and check out the Free Photography Course
. . . not that we need more books -- we have books from years ago that we mean to read someday -- but finding treasures can be enjoyable. . .at Prospero's Books on 39th Street in Kansas City. . .

***Disclaimer***It has come to my attention that DRD has used this photo as an example of how NOT to blog their items. I did use one of their items in this post and gave credit, but I am NOT an official DRD blogger, nor was the train obtained in a blogger pack. Therefore, it was not my intention to showcase their item.
National Library of Latvia
"Looking at the building we see an intriguing form. It is visually attractive to us. What is it like? It is expressive. It is a library, a functional symbol. It is a reminder of an outstanding historical event, important for Latvia, the making of its statehood, as well as praise to the rebirth of the state and its renewed collections of cultural treasures.
The linear nature of words fail to describe fully the three dimensional architectural shape. As to the expressivity the form has many meanings.
To perceive its meaning, it we have to return to the feelings and intuition that accompanied the moment of creation." (the architect Gunars Birkerts about the idea of the project)

“Every book, every volume you see here, has a soul. The soul of the person who wrote it and of those who read it and lived and dreamed with it. Every time a book changes hands, every time someone runs his eyes down its pages, its spirit grows and strengthens.”
― Carlos Ruiz Zafón, The Shadow of the Wind
Nothing better on a Lazy Sunday than curling up somewhere cosy with a good book...

Why do we love reading books? Is it because we can explore other worlds or because through them we can escape our own?
Maybe we just like that we can always bookmark a page and return to it anytime we want...
Life doesn't give us this... life is an adventure we cannot pause...
We can just live, learn from experiences, have fun as much as we can... and hope to enrich this adventure we call life.
