A fleeting moment…. The challenger for this week mentioned something about street photography, but I prefer to find myself on a ferryboat with a wind in my hair and snapping pics of a fleeting sunset leaving one island to land on the next one.
Just for you for this challenge, a sunset over Malta archipelago, one of the images that tells me I have to go back some day.
Blogger awards…. flattering, exciting, gratifying – sure all of the above. Coming from a nice person whose blog intrigues and inspires me, even better.
Michael aka Picture-Bandit recommended my blog as “if that is not versatile, I don’t know what is“ and made me laugh and smile and as far as I am concerned it served the purpose.
Will I decline it? Sadly, I must. It is not just because I feel pressure building up, it is cause I don’t believe in competing, not about blogging… it is all so relative, so subjective and what inspires me does not have to inspire the next person.
Anyway, this recommendation on P-B’s page made me discover some nice bloggers that deserve to be known as persons as well or so it seems to me now :).
Thank you P-B for the nomination, for seeing something on my page that inspires you. We are here to have fun, to stream our lives to some things that will make it even better.
“Freedom is the possibility of isolation. You are free if you can withdraw from people, not having to seek them out for the sake of money, company, love, glory or curiosity, none of which can thrive in silence and solitude. If you can’t live alone, you were born a slave.”
And here is the original:
“A liberdade é a possibilidade do isolamento. És livre se podes afastar-te dos homens, sem que te obrigue a procurá-los a necessidade de dinheiro, ou a necessidade gregária, ou o amor, ou a glória, ou a curiosidade, que no silêncio e na solidão não podem ter alimento. Se te é impossível viver só, nasceste escravo.” (Fernando Pessoa).
