    Rauf, but without your 'keen' eye to extract art from nature .. it just grows and dies. (grins)

    I grow and die too Davo, before I go I'd like to be useful to one or two guys. I'd be rewarded if the pictures make you smile.

    ah, Rauf, thank you for delighting my eyes this morning. Smile, oh yes indeed, it makes me smile. I want to sink into these photos and wrap myself in them. Such a lovely, soft use of light.

    Thank you Jim, For me nature has been the source of inspiration. I am not impressed with any philosophy so far. The most inspiring factor is life itself.

  • 2:54 PM, Blogger Rauf

    I cannot do the same with words Hayden, the way you delight me. You have the magic.

    Hahaha, Rauf. I read your Italian nun joke. :)

    These photos almost make me cry they are so beautiful.

    Rauf, do you remember the first time you commented on my blog? I think it was around December. I know I went to your sites, but I think I forgot about going back for a long time, until I kept seeing your comments on Suresh's site, so then I came & commented on your site & we've been friends since then. Isn't that awesome, the way people connect & form friendships? I just thought that was neat. Okay, now I must go comment on your other site! Even though I haven't been commenting on your sites lately, I've still been visiting.

    I found oscar wilde poem.. couldnt find link to pomegranate photo post that you sent.
    wanted to put this because i remember one person said inverted the pomegranates would look like mouths...

    As a pomegranate, cut in twain,
    White-seeded, is her crimson mouth,
    Her cheeks are as the fading stain
    Where the peach reddens to the south.

  • 7:29 PM, Blogger Rauf

    Her Cheeks ? Oweee rather His Cheeks, what was his name sonal ? Bosey ? His boy friend ?? please check
    Personal life aside, I love his imagination and language, the brits are so jealous of it, he was victimised more out of jealousy.

    Nature is a good teacher too Neerja. Most of the great designs are copied from nature or inspired by nature.
