And I'll be there... by Michel-Lag-Chavarria And I'll be there... by Michel-Lag-Chavarria
I’ll try and catch the moon for you
And if my ladder is too short
Then I’ll buy a new one;
And I’ll be there
For you…

.°.

Shot today again in Bédarieux, my village…

This is an old house which is actually renewed but we still can see an old painting on one of the walls. I find a lot of poetry in this picture, the man on the ladder, trying to reach his Northern Star, the lady at the window, impassive or waiting for something to happen, the space between them, a string of lost pages stretched along his futile quest, maybe just love words lost in the wind, the grey painting splashes out the windows, like rejected memories, the pink rose on the upper right window ledge, finally like an accessible hope, but still higher…

:rose:

Canon EOS 50D + Canon Zoom 18-200mm…

Wonderful words and picture... :love:

Hopefully they will be able to save the paintings... I've seen murals like that before. Don't remember exactly where... maybe Gordes, definitely somewhere on or around Le Luberon. One of the most beautiful places I've seen btw. :heart: And I've seen a few... :aww:

Toute la façade est-elle un trompe-l'œil ou juste la partie droite de celle-ci ?

Il me semble voir ici dépeint tous les mythes d'amours impossibles, de ces quêtes qui finirent toutes dans le Lac des Âmes Maudites...

Une superbe prise poétographique de l'amour !

Merci Michel !


Mes amitiés,

H. E-P.

:love: You are so beautifully poetic, and or poetically beautiful? :) What a lovely way to interpret that wall. I hope they never restore it. It's wonderful! I wish we knew the real story. Probably not as inspiritational as yours, but would be nice to know.

I love how you are always able to catch the emotions of things you photograph.
It's a great gift to be able to turn something simple into a touching image, with this image as a great example of that fact.
You are a great inspiration and rolemodel my dear friend, please don't ever stop being yourself! :cuddle:

That is a very cool, slightly disorienting angle you choose here, which works perfectly for the subject matter. At times I can't decide whether or not even the windows are painted! :eager:

;P Just the 2 upper right windows, the closed ones, are painted... :) Thank you my dear for being there... :rose:
