"Sometimes our fate resembles a fruit tree in winter. Who would think that those branches would turn green again and blossom, but we hope it, we know it."
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe [german playwrither, poet, novelist and dramatist. 1749-1832]

Oh, mi-e mila de rosia aia. Parca fotografia asta ii spune povestea. Inghetata in gradina de cateva saptamani, observa pe cineva ca se apropie de ea. Si bucuroasa, abia asteapta sa fie luata in bucatarie unde e cald, si taiata intr-o salata. :)) Dar nu, acel cineva o fotografiaza si pleaca. Si pana la primavara mai e asa mult timp. Chiar daca mi-e mila de rosie, fotografia asta imi place. :) Trebuie sa recunosc, combinatia rosu-alb e frumoasa iarna. Dar totusi, n-o sa inchei cu "hai dinamo".;)) Si citatul e tare frumos.

@Nomade: thank you. actually is one of the few photos that i don't process at all.. and.. by the way.. where is the sun in your late entries? all i read about is depression. hope is a transitory mood :)

@Tudor: it was a representation, a figurative speech. i'm sure you got it, but you are a stubborn one, no? :)). anyway [hmm,strange we have the same twitches in writing] thanks for stopping by

Beautiful picture. I admire your work. The D80 is my dream camera ;). Thanks for visiting my blog. I would like to link you up into my blogroll.

Thanks Dennis. I like your writings, especially the last one. And when you think that i stumbled into your blog by chance :). You are most kind for wanting to add my blog into your blogroll and it's your decision.
Regarding the camera, Nikon D80, i'm sure that with just a little ambition you can fulfill it. I on the other hand dream at a Nikon700 and even higher D3x :)) this is likely to remain indeed just a dream :))

Wonderful picture and true words. After every rain there comes sunshine. Life is always a up and down.
I really like your work. Especially the portraits. I like taking snaps of people in everyday life.

I like winter's touch in this shot. We just surpassed the most snow in December in history for this town!
61.5 inches and more coming tonight. A normal winter here is around 40 inches. This too will melt and spring will come! (repeat 50 times) :-)

Love this photo! The last remnants of summer with Winter taking over. The tomato adds some great color to the photo as well!
