Closed and silent

Dear friends, I realize that during the period I was away, I missed a lot of news in your blog, I'm really sorry for have not read "live" such important news of you, who are my friends, in yours blogs.
I've been away from Vienna and I had a period of introversion and reflection, so many thoughts, so many troubles, so many memories, so many dreams ...

Then I confess that I was never been a big fan of Christmas or New Year's Eve ... I know I'm complicated

Well, but I hope sincerely that this year will be, for all of us, a year full of artistic inspiration that is, finally, our air and our bread, I hope there will be good healthy for all, and that our problems, our fears, our dreams lead us to understand more and more how beautiful life is, and the importance of small smiles, of small happiness from every day, as enjoy a little weak and pale grass that creeps in to the dry and died grass to help to revive the visual, musics and smelling spectacle, that we called spring...

I embrace you all and thank you for your encouragement and your neighborhood.
I apologize, even, I've been quiet lately ... closed and silent on my own,
I'm sure, who better than you can understand me...


















From my picture diary - January 8, 2011 - Ascona






Cari amici, leggendovi mi accorgo che, durante il periodo nel quale sono stata via, mi sono persa molte novitá nei vostri blog, mi dispiace davvero di non aver letto "in diretta" le cose pubblicate da voi (che siete i miei amici) nei vostri blog.
Sono stata via da Vienna e ho avuto un periodo di introversione e riflessione, tanti pensieri, tanti ricordi, tanti sogni...

Spero che quest'anno sia un anno pieno di ispirazione artistica che é, alla fine, la nostra aria e il nostro pane, che ci sia sempre la salute, e che i nostri problemi, le nostre paure, i nostri sogni ci portino a capire smepre piú quanto la vita sia bella, e quanto sia importante sorridere delle piccole felicitá di ogni giorno, come gioire di un debole e pallido filo d'erba che si insinua nell'erba secca per contribuire a fare rinascere quello splendido spettacolo che noi chiamiamo primavera...

Vi abbraccio tutti e vi ringrazio per il vostro incoraggiamento e la vostra vicinanza.

Laura these are beautiful sentiments! I hope your time away has left you refreshed and ready for a wonderful new year, and all the bad dreams are far behind. I like these photos very much and the classic look to them - were they taken with a special camera?

Juanjo Fernández said...

Me encanta esa última foto, y toda la serie!!!

Brian Sylvester said...

Laura,

The photos and your words are beautiful, and it is very good to have you back. You were missed!

Time away is good...to breathe, to think and to put things in perspective. No need to apologize ;) Silence is okay!

Happy New Year!
Brian

Buon anno nuovo pieno dei colori che desideri, cara Laura, insieme all'augurio sincero per giorni sereni in cui sia possibile, per tutti, attingere alla sorgente viva che continuamente zampilla in ognuno di noi. Un abbraccio affettuoso. Luigi.

Hi laura!
It is only because you are such an amazing artist!..
That you are excused! ;)
Remember..to hold on!..you need to let go!
Welcome back! :)

Momo Luna said...

Dear, dear Laura,

like Brian said, you don't have to excuse yourself. There are times for socializing and there are times for being on your own, to find yourself again. I understand you very well, i also have times of being silent.

Your photographs are so beautiful, like you are. :-)

I've send you a mail to check the adress i sended my package to, and also the Zazzle card. Please let me know if the adress is correct. If so, i send you a new package and Zazzle card. The other ones must have been lost. :-s

Sweet greetz and xoxo, Monica

Silence and solitude are good medicine. I love the pictures. Thank you, Laura.

sarà sicuramente un anno di grande ispirazione!
un grande abbraccio caríssima!!

Hi dear Gabriella, such a pleasure to see you!
yes this is a special tecnich called TTV
TTV photography is when you use a digital camera in conjunction with a vintage TLR camera such as a Kodak Duaflex or an Argus or any other camera that has a viewfinder large enough, but I'm not so good, this is only a photo effect with I-phone vintage camera,
but I have order an old kodak and I will try in conjunction with my digital nikon, we will see
I love too this kind of effect, and I wont to try to meke it self

:-) kiss

Late Blooming Bohemian said...

Hello, the photos are very beautiful.
Sensitive creative souls become overburdened with stimuli from the world and from the past. Sometimes it is not only necessary but nourishing to be silent and have space to become clear and calm.
I am please you chose to follow my blog and so now I have the pleasure to know yours. I have not be active blogging but do enjoy it, especially to meet others and see their world through their eyes.
peace

marty said...

I'm happy you're back and I hope that this year will be a great one for you! these images are mysterious and beautiful ! love all of them:
many bisous for you

Olivia said...

Woman in a Window said...

Laura, Robert and I were just talking about this photo technique this morning! I have to say though, for me, you use the technique with the right sort of evocative and solitary images. The one of the boy (your son?) in front of one of your paintings took my breath away. Without knowing what he was in front of at first, it appeared as though he was in front of fractured rock, and then my mind sorted it out, and bam! It was beautiful, the revelation of it.

You are soft. I hope the New Year is gentle with you.

Laura - I love this beautiful series of photographs. From the shadows of the swings to the lights at night your portraits and the paths that lead us to places very wonderful. You've a very special eye my friend.
The best to you.

Alberto Oliver said...

Laura!! you dont need to apologize at all. Not even mention it. But I hope your introspection period had led you to wonderful conclussions and thoughts. And you know your thoughts and words are always welcome, but by imaging you are right and having a good time it is more than enough reward.Very welcome to the new year, I wish you the best today and everyday. Achieve all your wishes and dreams, you have it all for this, determination, a great heart, a noble spirit and of course, mountains of skills, you gifted artist.
Ok Laura, let´s start today and go get what you wish an dream on!!
Receive my best regards and a hug.

silence, closing, introspection absolutely necessary in the creative process. recharging one's batteries. going deep to reignite the life spark.

love the moody, brooding feeling of the photos.
