Yellow Curves….

Yellow rose…
Full of lively curves…
Curves sculpted by light
Curves changed by breeze…
Curves followed by bugs
Curves holders of rainy drops…
Petals made curves
Curves made a yellow rose…

Spring time brings its beauty….

“You’re beautiful, but you’re empty…One couldn’t die for you. Of course, an ordinary passerby would think my rose looked just like you. But my rose, all on her own, is more important than all of you together, since she’s the one I’ve watered. Since she’s the one I put under glass, since she’s the one I sheltered behind the screen. Since she’s the one for whom I killed the caterpillars (except the two or three butterflies). Since she’s the one I listened to when she complained, or when she boasted, or even sometimes when she said nothing at all. Since she’s my rose.”  
―     Antoine de Saint-Exupéry,     The Little Prince

Damascene Work in Toledo, Spain

This week, for the Daily Post Challenge, “Pattern”, I have chosen a craftwork that is made in Toledo, Spain: Damascene Work.
As it is made by hand, it is impossible to find two pieces alike…

The work is hard:
-1º: Artisans have to shape the piece of iron or steel they are going to work with.
-2º: They have to mark it: to créate lines, shapes….All with a little chisel.
-3º: Here it comes: they have to embed a gold thread, or a silver one, or even a tiny gold sheet with a flat base punch very small (1 mm diameter!)
-4º:Then they use a wider punch (well…Only 3 mm diameter!) and a special hammer, to fix the threads or the sheets with a lot of accuracy…
-5º: After, the piece must be darkened through a chemical process.
-6º: Finally, the artist must still burnish the piece with burins and chisels to polish it, to increase or decrease contrast…

And here is the result….

Hanging on a blue slide

With no place to hide…

She Shouldn´t Be So Captivating…

She was there, standing alone, in a small garden in the middle of the Old Town…
She was just a scarecrow…
But..Should I be a crow…
I would love to be rocked by her red hair…
I would love to be lost with her forever…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Lost in the Details…

If you ask C., he will tell you this week´s challenge is “My” challenge…
He is always complaining about how much time I can spend just doing one pic, and another one, and…hey wait, another one!
-“But…it is always the same thing!” (he will say)…
-“No, there are many different points of view” (I will say)…

Here my last example, just for all of you!
Here is what I found, just walking on the forest…

Frosty seeds in a cold winter morning

Frosty morning
After the first pic I could not help it…Every seed had its own personality….

When we are talking about Old Classics, we are talking about special cars….Every one has its own sounds, its own vibrations..Its own SOUL…

When testing them, you do not need a computer…But your brain, your heart, your ears and your own hands…

Knowledge and delicacy….

Passion…
