"A Mind Walk"

Sorry for the late post, problems are still a plenty with Blogger and users on the old account.

This is an “image[s] captured while walking the lens” this morning. The sun was trying to burst the through the thick fog that overwhelmed the rural landscape around where I live. Sepia treatment then a desaturation through the cyan channel plus vignette.

Sleep walking is something that I have, at least not that I know of, ever experienced. I have in my minds eye envisaged what it would be like though and dream those thoughts of wandering through a landscape without any relativity to it. Wondering how, what and why I have come to be here….

…. and in the time
that I dream of nameless places
like day without beginning nor end,
where people walk within the air
above time, in an eternal present.

It is there that my mind walks
amongst misty layers of thought.
On the edge of darkness
that even purity fails brighten
and time is plenty for rushing fools.

Darkness and mist, be the same abyss
where reason is foreign and alien.
For those who fly, do not fall,
to feel the depth of the cold
of this eternal mind walk.


A Mind Walk

Have a great weekend everyone and be safe.

I understand you did there through this brilliant country.

Have a nice week-end Ndiginiz

being able to fly, doesn't necessarily save you from falling.
Great shot, looks like a mind on the verge of clearing.

Beautiful!!! Lovely words to go with it ...I can almost imagine you in that state of wanering.

Also I have to confess, your comment on my website made me laugh ... laugh out LOUD!!! Its hilarious!!! Thank you for giving me such a good laugh! I was helped by the music playing ... "lets mahke a night to remember" by Bryan Adams.

You have captured a magical quality in the light and atmosphere of this image. The processing enhances the dreamlike effect to match your touching words.

Very nice! I really like the sunshine that is coming through the tree. The sky is a bit bright, but it gets the point across.

ndiginiz, have you posted a shot after this??? I saw a post but it, but coudnt find the comment box and I was very confused about what happened.

@ everyone; thank you for your responses to this image and the communications of problems you've been having in trying to leave a comment here.

I'm at a loss to inform you of what the problems are specifically because I have no idea what those technical problems are but, those problems and unanswered requests for help, have been the motivating factors that have forced "nativ flavaz" to move from Blogger to My-Expressions.

Finally I have had enough of the technical difficulties and problems that have plagued Blogger since the amalgamation with Google. In fact many Blogger users have, and have like me have moved to another blogging service.

The photoblog a collection of passerby images | "nativ flavaz" continues on, in the much more friendlier and technically responsive environment of My Expressions.

@ jeff ambrose; glad to be of some service! I hope all is okay with you and yours.

@ ana; no you're totally right! In actuality the ability to fly saves no-one from falling but, in a mind walk? Well everything is not as it appears.... The mind is always on the verge of clearing, making room for more clouded thoughts of which to take for a walk.

@ samir; It's great to meet another new photographer. Thanks for dropping by "nati flavaz", I hope you'll find some time to stop by te new "nativ flavaz"

@ jyoti; sorry mate there's no other image after this image here. Most probably one of those technical glitches occurred and somebody foprgot to feed my mice....

Again, many thanks for your continued support of "nativ flavaz" here and I hope you'll continue your support of "nativ flavaz" at My Expressions.

The latest version of this blog can be found at a collection of passerby images | "nativ flavaz". The latest incarnate is verison IV but hopefully the last. After problems accessing version III of my blog and no apparent support from the blogging service I decided to leave version III behind and start a new. I recently found tumblr and it looks like a blogging application I can grow comfortably old with. That said I'm still coming to terms with the nooks and cranies so to speak, so while I'm posting photographs in version IV of this blog, expect to see some subtle changes over the next few weeks.

Thanks to those of you who have followed me through various versions. Your support and commentary has over time been very much appreciated.
