Es un hecho que nuestra sociedad anda camino de un acusado envejecimiento. La base de la pirámide demográfica constata un menor peso en cuanto a juventud se refiere. Pero ello no significa que nos encontremos en un estado de andropausia social ante el cúmulo de abusos de variada índole que están mermando la capacidad adquisitiva de un sector muy significativo de la ciudadanía. Me incluyo entre quienes hemos dicho basta y hemos decidido salir a la calle real o a la calle virtual de las redes sociales con el convencimiento de que otro mundo es posible, o que la economía no es cuestión de una minoría privilegiada para su enriquecimiento personal. El bien común ha de ser un bien irrenunciable.


Ánimo, que la democracia no consiste solo en ir a las urnas cada cuatro años.

This tree mallow flower is a hybrid cultivar of Lavatera assurgentifolia (native to the Channel Islands off California) and Lavatera venosa from off Baja California. I love the elaborate center for its appearance, but this flower is more than just a pretty face -- it is a nectar source for the Painted Lady butterfly.

Here is yet another image from my first visit in 2 months to South Coast Botanic Garden last Sunday. Ants seem to love bird of paradise flowers (the flowers exude a sweet sap), but sometimes I want photographs without insects. I tried my bulb blower to run the ants off, but they were unimpressed with the sudden increase in windy conditions. I tried a spray bottle (I usually carry a 2-ounce bottle full of filtered drinking water), but these determined ants were not about to leave, so here they are, exploring paradise in the rain. ;) (The translucent shiny bits at lower left are part of the flower.) (Zuiko 50mm macro, f/6.3, 1/250 sec., ISO 100, filtered late morning sun, handheld)


NOTE: I truly appreciate your generous invitations to groups, but please NO invitations to private groups that I am not already a member of. Thanks.

Day posesses no key here

where moon sheds the cold twilight

This moment is eternity

Land of beauty,

Cold and cruel

Reflecting the melancholy

And to Skeletal Mess for the other textures

They were in love deeply devoted each other. In those old time it was difficult to life as "black ship". Older one was artist painter, young teacher.

They both loved riding horses. Great excuse to be together.

A Last beautiful SONG

Thnaks werner:)


And a POEM!


Out-worn heart, in a time out-worn,

Come clear of the nets of wrong and right;

Laugh, heart, again in the gray twilight;

Sigh, heart, again in the dew of the morn.

Thy mother Eire is always young,

Dew ever shining and twilight gray,

Though hope fall from thee or love decay

Burning in fires of a slanderous tongue.

Come, heart, where hill is heaped upon hill,

For there the mystical brotherhood

Of hollow wood and the hilly wood

And the changing moon work out their will.

And God stands winding his lonely horn;

And Time and World are ever in flight,

And love is less kind than the gray twilight,

And hope is less dear than the dew of the morn.


W.B. Yeats

Unos botes a la deriva, en la Laguna, también al gustó cómo teñía los botes la cálida luz de esa hora

Some boats adrift, in the lagune also at dusk... I liked the stained boats with the warm light of that hour.


Ganadora en la selección de fotos del mes de Mayo 2010 en el grupo "Barcos"

Westminster, Maryland USA


This is not really a river, but a lake, a quiet place where usually lovers go at night. What reminds me the C. Eastwood movie is that many years ago two youngs were found murdered just here. The case has never been solved.....


In realtà si tratta della riva di un lago, non di un fiume. Un posto frequentato da coppie sul far della notte. Ciò che mi ha ricordato il film di C. Eastwood in questa immagine è il fatto che molti anni fà proprio qui due giovani vennero trovati morti, uccisi da qualcuno in un caso che non ha mai trovato soluzione.
