Assol by maska13 Assol by maska13
Assol, Caesarea, Israel, 2013. Inspired by Scarlet Sails.
Scarlet Sails (Russian: Алые паруса, Alye parusa) is a 1961 Soviet film produced by Mosfilm and directed by Alexandr Ptushko. It is based on Alexander Grin's 1923 adventure novel. The story is a romantic fantasy and is described as a "fairy tale", though it contains no overtly supernatural elements.
The setting is a small fishing village. The former seaman Longren raises his daughter Assol alone after losing his beloved wife, making a meager living by selling the toy boats he carves from wood. As a child, Assol encounters an old man who claims to be a wizard and promises the girl that one day a prince will come on a ship with scarlet sails to carry her away. The villagers scoff but Assol believes her dream will come true one day.
Arthur Grey is a nobleman's son who breaks away from his cruel father to pursue a life at sea, and eventually becomes the captain of a merchant vessel. Having set to port at Assol's village, he spies the young maiden sleeping in the forest and falls in love. After inquiring in the village he learns of Assol's dream and sets about to make it come true.
P.S. Black cat like to black spy :)

Love the background story. Once upon a time when I was young, I left the sea to find a lover for my life, and now, a lifetime since, we have four granddaughters! So it seems more real than fairy-tale to me. But as for the photo, I think its absolutely great, with texture, color, composition that all are a delight, the ocean. a pretty girl, and a cat to boot! Personally, I could not ask for more out of an image. Its a short subject movie in a single still.

"Котяра", скорее всего, олицетворяет торговца, отказавшего девочке в помощи и поплатившегося, по законам жанра и совести...
Хороша твоя Ассоль. :clap:

Кот тут мрачная фигура. Но на самом деле, думаю он был просто удивлен, что "мужская комната" занята дамой :). Девочка довольно странная простояла в этой позе очень долго, подозреваю, она читала молитву- на ней одежда религиозной... Я гонялась за котом, а нашла вот такой кадр...

Спасибо за отзыв :)

Thank you so much for the comments. They were very interesting to read & now I found a new movie to look forward to seeing.
 
Love the image of the young girl looking out to sea, even though you cannot see her face it (the image) speaks of longings...(to grow up, to be in control of ones life, to fall in love, to be free, to explore etc).

The cat kind of thew me off at 1st, but after reading the comments I get where you were going with this. LOL
