It seems there is someone, maybe a stranger, willing to listen to my stories...
07-JUN-2007 Marisa

It seems there is someone, maybe a stranger, willing to listen to my stories...

Canal St. Martin - Paris (France)

Men of few words are often deep thinkers that make of them the best listeners.
Words are like little multicoloured pearls to string one after the other, matching colours and dimension.
The final result might be either a nice necklace or a flashy useless heavy thing.
Words are a dangerous and powerful weapon too,
But they can be a totally empty shell.
Words are decorations of facts.
Images are more effective.
Words can be just the white thread to stitch images with each other and to make a light, ephemeral, little booklet…

Music is made of many notes and it takes a conductor to bring the symphony together. You have "conducted" your notes well and produced a symphony from these images. A really beleive your last line in the comments of this image...

an excellent image.. along with your words, made me remember that story of two japanese men, sitting and sharing tea for hours, in silence..
when they stood up, one told the other: what a rich encounter we had...

Un mystère plane sur cette photographie et sa belle légende.
Marisa, vous nous emmenez au-delà de la photographie...

Yes, there are two types of men, the ones that listen and the ones that can not stop talking. Your men are good listeners, because you have too many interesting things to say, and I bet you are a good listeners, as well.
