Another find on the side of a dumpster in Asheville, North Carolina. This back street gave me a lot of presents to delight in over Christmas.

  1. Magnifique! Just like an old mirror with a baroque adorned frame. I love the details, the grainy texture and the hues of the wall or door.

    Beauty is everywhere our eyes stop and look.

    Your images about “almost nothing” compel us to discover the beauty of things you first saw. Thank you.

    Your abstracts or stlill life pictures (the series of walls or doors) remind me this poem of Baudelaire called “L’invitation au voyage”. A trip within the beauty.
    (Hope you understand what I mean)

    April, I’ll write to you tomorrow.

  2. Thank you, Micheline. It’s great to hear from you.

    I found the original and some English translations of “L’invitation au voyage”. My preference is for the version by Edna St. Vincent Millay, but I wonder which you feel is most true to Baudelaire?

  3. Looks like a whimsical comic plea to the snow gods…. Happy Christmas, Merry New Year and, well, keep Festus in your heart as well April.
