blue tones


Photography is a small voice, at best, but sometimes one photograph,
or a group of them, can lure our sense of awareness.

Fuerteventura - Isla de los sueños


To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour.

always Valentine's


 Here is a light that shows me the way,
To a secret garden, with a fragrant bouquet,
And as I enter through its welcoming gates,
To savor all that for me awaits -
I can't help but wonder why the light chose me
Why fate gave me the Garden's key.
For whatever the reason, this much I know,
It is a lovely place where I love to go -
A garden full of life's delights -
Of tenderness and wondrous nights.

A garden in which to nourish my soul;
A place to go to make me whole
Where the warming light becons me stay
Where always it is Valentine's Day.
Time has shown me this simple truth,
That the light that shines from high above -
That leads me to this garden each day
Is the nurturing light of your infinite love.


Ara John Movsesian


Winter silence


Man kann viel erleben – das geht vorbei.
Man kann auch rasch erleben – auch das geht vorbei.
 Aber in Ruhe und in vollen Zügen erleben,
daß sich die Erinnerung aller Einzelheiten erinnert,
da ist das Erleben, von dem wir noch nach Jahren zehren.

Wilhelm Vogel

 Das einzig wirkliche Übel ist das Fehlen von Liebe. 

John Robinson, 1650 - 1723


Happy Valentine dear friends !!!!


Winterland - an der Elbe


 Es ist gar kein übler Monat, dieser Februar, man muß ihn nur zu nehmen wissen.
