Passage of Time by Moonbeam13 Passage of Time by Moonbeam13
I'm currently working through something so bear with me..

One day at a time--this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering.

The ebb and flow of nature.........the graduation from dark to light is very calming for me, indeed. There's no texture like nature's own...........j

Ah, a neat perspective of Time I must say. :D I love the ripples and such, it adds to the quaility of the picture very well. ;)

Hoy leía mientras venía de regreso a casa y el último capítulo fue el Ritmo.
Al parecer la naturaleza nos indica un hermoso camino que cuando lo encuentra llega al centro del universo, es decir, a nosotros mismos.
Hermosa foto para ilustrar el camino.

I hope whatever you're working through turns out ok and makes you a stronger person in the end.

This picture is gorgeous, such a strong concept. Life and time create such beautiful patterns, but it can all be washed away. Life is fragile and beautiful.

hummm nice!
devilicious Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2006  Professional Photographer

but that's not important

The philosophy you state in your "Artist Comments" box is nearly the same as "To His Coy Mistress" by Andrew Marvell. You may find solace in his words.

Beautiful photograph; the point of view you found was excellent.
TwoEyes Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2006   Writer
either you or me are missing the concept of this picture.

i get the feeling that i'm supposed to see something in it, some concept, but i fail to see anything.
it's like walking into a circus tent and there's nothing there.
i'm used to not seeing stuff that other people do.
ot not seeing at all.
so i'll gladly take the blame for it.

Makes me think of Ozymandias by Percy Bysshe Shelley.
Moonbeam13 Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2005  Hobbyist Photographer
neat comparison :) "The lone and level sands stretch far away."

I like it :)
mongolShawn Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2005
Thanks. The poem has always stuck in my head. In the end Ozymandius is not rememered for the monuments but for his wish to be remembered. Time always wins, you're remembered how it wants you to be, not by the will you try to impose upon it.
radioPooh Featured By Owner Dec 24, 2005
the best thing about being a zen buddist is living in the moment .. i seldom think of the past and never think of the future (why would you I wonder)

what a great picture .. i often am stuck by the beauty of nature and the patterns she paints ..
Moonbeam13 Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2005  Hobbyist Photographer
I do appreciate that aspect of zen buddhism I have a buddha board have you seen one?
radioPooh Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2005
i know of them .. it's a very neat art/zen thing ...

sort of based on the famous koen (parable/story lesson) that the moon exist / the water exist - but does the reflection of the moon in water exist

the answer is - in the moment (like disappearing art)

I worked for years on a rescue squad and saw a fair amount of death and trauma .. for many years it took it's toil (poets and trauma do not mix well)

after years of religious study - no kidding . one day - outside on a sunny winter day (with my college roomate who is now dead from aids) - doing some illegal drugs (it was the 70's) - i became enlighten . the answer was (and i know this sounds hokey but it's so true) .. Shit Happens ..

ever since that moment I could accept the things i saw and witnessed

thanks you .. you are a true inspiration and i can see the spiritual side within you ..

my wife and i are great lovers of the moon light and follow the old ways and cycles

Very good Daniella - i'm hosting a contest called time at the moment - you could definitely enter this!
Moonbeam13 Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2005  Hobbyist Photographer

Veganvictim Featured By Owner Dec 22, 2005  Professional Traditional Artist
yuh huh - just cause you'se admin don't mean you don't get a chance to enter stuff surely!!

check my journal out it has it all in there and all 50+ entries - there's some really cool ones.
Moonbeam13 Featured By Owner Dec 22, 2005  Hobbyist Photographer
I took a look great entries!!
Veganvictim Featured By Owner Dec 22, 2005  Professional Traditional Artist
they're all really damn good, i'm really impressed - it's also the contest i've had the most entries for so far. possibly cause the prize is so big or maybe because the theme can be translated so many ways
Viney1 Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2005
I think you have a great sense of irony to have named such a still photo after something which is in motion. I think, also, that somehow you've managed to give the water the look of a desert.

Yes, life is a bumpy ride…and soo, so worth it, bruises and all. I'm sorry for your pain, moon, but I'm not worried about you in the least. I know you know what I mean.


It's not an afterthought though is seems like one; the pic is lovely and relevant, as usual.
