It’s Thursday afternoon, it’s beautiful outside and I’m on my way to Carinthia. The next two weeks I’ll be busy moving, but I hope I’ll find at an hour a day to go swimming, at least as long as it’s sunny and warm.

I did take some images today, but mostly I was in a hurry, thus making them typical examples of non-contemplative photography 🙂

Here’s someting from Italy instead.

The Song of the Day is “The Precious Jewel” from the 1997 Charlie Haden / Pat Metheny collaboration “Beyond The Missouri Sky”. Hear it on YouTube.

  1. Beautiful – colors and square composition. I like that you placed the purple-shadowed column smack dab in the center, but that it doesn’t completely divide the image.

    Even the forms in the window upon which are draped the jewels seem to be pointing in the same direction the bicycle is facing.

  2. I like that shot. The LX5 really is a nice camera. I have a Lumix TZ5 that does very well too.
    Thanks,
    John

  3. Well, even though taken in a hurry, I feel this photograph is worth contemplating for a longer time!

  4. Hehe. This is lovely, but I’m actually curious about what you saw today when too rushed to stop and think! 🙂

    Hope your move goes smoothly.

  6. Well, if you pair contemplative with “taking a long time” it probably was not, but I guess it was such a “flash of perception” that you were able to transform into an image. This is what heightened awares can do to you – and did, as you see images since quite a long time.
