Eternally yours…

A view form a hill just north of the Forbidden City, in Beijing, China. From Jingshan Park, if memory serves… This is a view of the north gate… in the far distance you might be able to make out the southernmost gate of the city; and on the other side of that is Tiananmen Square… I swear to you I could spend a month in the Forbidden City, shooting with a different lens, all day, every day, and still not do this place justice, photographically… The way the light strikes the various surfaces, and always shifting… The people… The museums…   It is truly a marvel…       Advertisements

Music and the Masters…

  “Music is not a conversation, any more than Poetry is. It is a goad: at times a whip – at others a leash. You may rail against the stick, and cry out for justice, for freedom; but when have you – in all your burning desire for the releasing – when have you created anything half as glorious as that which the least of the Masters created from within their imprisonment?” EJ Liederstein
