Of course he’s happy! But we are more so. Warm well crafted picture that interestingly flips our natural direction for exploring to try to determine what he is getting.

A wonderful treat to us all! I am proud to have been in Setubal for the amazing cuisine and freshest most diverse fish and seafood!

This is the only place on the planet I know to compete with the experience at Bodrum for just walking around, taking in the sea air and enjoying the best food!

No Asher this is not a communal kitchen. It is the kitchen of a lady (matriarchal society).

And I was wrong. It was shot in Meghalaya, India State north of Bangladesh.

Wolfgang,

Remarkable mood of the woman alone with her history of her journey, still caring for her many plants. The effect of using backlight is somperfrct for this very touching image. It goes beyond sentimental and is a seriously fine photograph. The array of bottles on the table provide that “extra finishing touch” to make the picture rise above “very good” to be exceptional.

But we’re they staged? I don’t see any purpose in all those clear bottles? No negative criticism here, just wondering about technique and tgecworkingvof your thoughts!

Asher

Hi

the bottles were a part of many others standing in this cottage, containing the "friend of the lonely ones" ...

So, Wolfgang,

Who is this special lady and how did you get such personal access to her world?

This is nature, Antonia. No neat borders of human architectural design here! This is a rich interdependent community. One trunk of a tree, (or massive collection of air roots or vines), plastered with thick layers of aged moss through which other epithets are growing. Inside this, there will be hosts of different insects and spiders which will invite birds to feed!

But it also happens to be only a tiny part of a forrest of such overlapping independant sovereign states or ecosystems!

When you add it up in a glance, what do we have?

One word: beauty!

Thise are so handsome and ecologically rich.

If you were there at night this month, you might see marching processional toxic catapillars.




There is a current epidemic in neighboring Spain with the Pine vairiety and another major one with the oak species.


Glad you domemented them, Antonio. Where's the forrest? Do you know what kind of trunk that is? Is it a living tree or a bunch of air roots or vines or what?
