This loneliness is
not simply the result
of autumn colors-
even mountain evergreens make
me feel like autumn evening.

(Saigyo)

This photo immediately put me in mind of an aging ballerina who has been displaced from the limelight by younger more capable dancers. They eventually will also reach this endpoint and the cycle will be complete. Great crop and gritty processing that suits the subject perfectly. V

I love the textures in this. I would have thought this was film if I couldn't see otherwise. Well done!!

somewhere in this image
there lies a simple tune,
the melody of gardens
near and far.

the music of resting,
of being tired and alone.
a flute and a harp
sounds that drift
the breeze of autum,
the nights and days
of flowers.
