The Magic of the Cities.

Zen promotes the rediscovery of the obvious, which is so often lost in its familiarity and simplicity. It sees the miraculous in the common and magic in our everyday surroundings. When we are not rushed, and our minds are unclouded by conceptualizations, a veil will sometimes drop, introducing the viewer to a world unseen since childhood. ~ John Greer

What a richly, detailed post. Marvelous images. Your photography would have intrigued and excited Van Gogh, I think.

Wow, Van Gogh...the first shot is superb, such color and drama. I love the street scenes...and the black and white. Beautiful photography and subjects.

What a collection, the museums and yours! The second photo has great humour with the statue looking at the men, and the man looking at the woman. The fifth photo is brilliant. The white statues look like angles visiting the people; the tones and contrast for this effect are perfect. Fabulous series!
