Verena, this is an amazing image. The large expanses of white are so pure, and they pull you in to the broken/shattered looking glass? in the background. It is once again superb contrast, and in light of our conversation on twitter it is a very sad image. *hug*

dear Spyros
thank you for your dear words...

Spyros is referring to a conversation we had on Twitter. The artist comunity of my hometown has lost a dear artist-friend a year ago and we think about him today and miss him. He mainly lived with his partner and daughter in Paris. I don't want to mention his name because there's only a few things online of him and I won't change this circumstances.
It was gratifying to express my feelings with a Persephone going downwords, also the shape and color of the image remembers his art.

If you're interested in his work you might look

Yes, I have little to add to what Spyros and Verena have said. It is again a powerful emotional statement. I am haunted by the quality of the whites in this photo. They seem to me to have a subtle mocha tinge, a color which evokes bones to me and certainly the background is ashes. Are those young sprigs of life emerging from the destruction? Wonderful photo.
