Bookmarked #1

I am fascinated by storytellers. I like to keep the magic alive. Using a special spirit to have people listen and to fill their eyes with sparkles. Fascination. Tension. Drama. Emotions that big, they reach for the sky. There is no limit. Anything is possible. I enjoy confetti rain. I love anything that has a story. People, who are special personalities, who are pure and real, got something to say. Objects, nature, all living beings – it all got a story to share. We can find a history in anything if we pay attention. All this connected with joy and sorrow. The marvelous magic moments. It is great when a story can touch a heart and a soul, when it adds a big smile to your face or drown your eyes in tears.

It teases your fantasies. It touches you deeply. It’s fragile, nothing to hold on to. It is just a small capture of the perfect conditions. The perfect little story. Fading. It leaves you behind with an impression. That will stick with you. Bookmarked. As you are part of it too.

How about choosing some special pictures and let’s see how they make us feel and what we think? Is there a special mood or tension captured? Can we come up with a short story? Something that touches or inspires us? I’d love to give it a try and I really hope you’d like to join me. I will choose and post pictures regularly, and if you are up for it, please leave a comment or even pick it up in your blog and leave a link for it. I think it actually might be fun to do this on a regular basis and if we have more posts it should be interesting to compare how differently we see photograph, if we connect or don’t… We’ll start this project with two pictures to have an option.

Please let me know how you feel about it. Are you joining us?

Ich bin fasziniert von Geschichtenerzählern. Ich mag es, die Magie am Leben zu erhalten. Mit einem besonderen Spirit, damit die Leute zuhören und ihre Augen mit Funkeln erfüllt sind. Faszination. Spannung. Drama. Emotionen, die so groß sind und nach dem Himmel greifen. Es gibt keine Grenzen. Alles ist möglich. Ich genieße Konfetti Regen. Ich liebe alles, was eine Geschichte hat. Menschen, die besondere Persönlichkeiten sind, die pur und echt sind, die etwas zu sagen haben. Objekte, Natur, alle Lebewesen – alles hat eine Geschichte zu erzählen. Wir können in allem eine Geschichte finden, wenn wir aufmerksam sind. Alles dies in Verbindung mit richtigen Gefühlen, mit Freude und Trauer. Die wunderbaren magischen Momente. Es ist großartig, wenn eine Geschichte ein Herz und eine Seele berühren kann, wenn sie ein breites Lächeln ins Gesicht zaubert oder die Augen in Tränen ertränkt.

Es kitzelt die Fantasien. Es berührt zutiefst. Es ist zerbrechlich, nichts, woran man sich festhalten kann. Es ist nur eine kleines Erfassen der perfekten Bedingungen. Die perfekte kleine Geschichte. Verblassend. Es hinterlässt einen Eindruck. Dieser bleibt dir. Mit Lesezeichen versehen. Denn du bist ebenso ein Teil dessen.

Wie wäre es mit der Auswahl einiger spezieller Bilder und wir sehen mal, was diese mit uns tun, wie wir uns fühlen und was wir denken? Ist eine besondere Stimmung oder Spannung im Foto eingefangen? Fällt uns eine kurze Geschichte zum Foto ein? Etwas, das uns berührt oder inspiriert?

Ich möchte es gern versuchen, und ich hoffe wirklich, dass du dich mir anschließen magst. Ich starte einfach mal und suche Fotos raus, die ich regelmäßig poste. Wenn du Lust hast, dann hinterlasse mir bitte einen Kommentar oder schreibe einen Post in Deinem Blog und teile den Link per Kommentar. Ich denke, es könnte wirklich Spaß machen dies regelmäßig zu tun, und wenn wir mehr Beiträge haben, sollte es interessant sein diese zu vergleichen, wie unterschiedlich wir Fotografien sehen, ob wir uns abgesprochen fühlen oder eben auch nicht… Wir beginnen zwei Bildern, um Auswahl zu haben. Bist du dabei?

    OF THE FIRST IMAGE: I see the hand reaching up to grab a beautiful and shiny bobble. What will she grab; which one? What will she do with it? Will she hang it up to adore? Will she put it away to hang during a holy day? Will she display it along with other trinkets she loves to see every day as she comes and goes? This is a cool image. So many many things to reach for.

    THE SECOND IMAGE: Glass reflecting what is outside while it lets one see on the inside. I notice there is also a glass window on the back wall behind the front glass window, and you can see outside that window…all the way from the front, through the inside and through the back window and beyond that. The Front glass window is also a mirror. Unlike a true mirror, however…it is transparent. This, could be, an honest soul…who, in her own refuge that sees out while others outside are allowed to see in and also see themselves…and those that peer in from the outside can also see where from the soul they see inside the shelter…can see where the abiding soul came from.

    What a beautiful exercise, and thank you so much for allowing your readers to participate on your site. It’s a beautiful site hosted by a beautiful soul.

    Thank you Ian. I love your perspective on the world and your words. I’m happy and am spoiled (in a positive way) that you do support me that much. I am always keen to hear from your end!
    As far as the windows is concerned – I loved your comparision. I love the idea you saw it as a sincere soul. I truely love that picture.

    The stories I had on my mind were creepy, if I’m honest 😉

    Those images were so dynamic! I actually imagined you saw a great deal of possibility in both. How could it be otherwise?

    Creepy is totally acceptable. It could be morbid, it could be funny, it could be sad or frightening…it could be revealing…or hidden; periphery or direct. It could be anything…even change moment to moment.

    If I’d seen those images a few days ago, I likely would have responded differently, but YOUR site begs for love, peace joy and beauty, and so…in your site, that is what I saw in those images.

    Creepy? Eh…some people have a morbid fascination with death, sorrow and pain. I actually Knew a nurse years and years ago who was also a mortician, and she was also a hospice nurse because she was totally comfortable with death…she was also a vegan, and the thought of cruelty to animals sparked her rage. She actually broke into a animal lab and freed animals once. And got arrested.

    What’s in a picture? (Shrug). I told you what I saw. If you see creepy in the images, then what I see is still the same…but then I’d also see what you see, too…so then I see more then I would see all on my own.

      thanks so much for your time and effort. I’m totally down with you, Ian. And let me share a little secret with you here: pssst, yes, I am mainly sweet and loveable. But this only works for me, because I am well balanced. I do have my dark side too and that little devil dancing on my shoulder. So yes, I sometimes see creepy stuff as well. And certainly, this changes depending on ym mood, circumstances and so on. Therefor I thought it would be a great idea to share pictures and find out what people see in it. I hope to get more feedback so that it may become something regular.

    Das Foto mit den Puppengliedmaßen im Glas hat sofort meinen Blick auf sich gezogen. Es erinnert mich an meine eigene Kindheit als ich meine Puppe zum Puppendoktor in einem kleinen Spielzeugladen am Ort brachte. Ich war ganz enttäuscht, dass meine geliebte Puppe nicht in ein Klinikpuppenbettchen gelegt wurde, sondern dort in einem Plastiksack verfrachtet und zur Reperatur eingereicht wurde 😉

    Interessante Idee hast du 🙂

      Puppendoktor als Kindheitserinnerung ist doch generell eine positive Verbindung, schön! Ich persönlich mag es ja sehr, wenn Dinge nicht immer direkt sorglos weggeworfen werden. Ich habe immer das Gefühl, dass insbesondere diese alten Dinge noch zu einem Sprechen. Daher freut mich sehr, dass das Foto Deine Aufmerksamkeit auf sich gezogen hat. Und lieben Dank für Deinen Beitrag! Es ist schön von Dir zu lesen.

    I’ve been to the movies today and saw “Toy Story”. Now imagine all the parts in the picture would have an inner life to an extent and would start moving… creepy, isn’t it. Especially in connection with the window. Who is watching us when we don’t expect it?!

    On the other hand I see the attempt to save parts of life, to make it last for more generations. And the window will help us to get a deep and clear view inside and outside. So this is a very positive perspective too.

    The beauty of pure life!
