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

William Blake’s

Exuberance is beauty.

Art can never exist without naked beauty displayed.

If the doors of perception were cleansed everything would appear to man, as it is, infinite.

No bird soars too high if he soars with his own wings.

One thought fills immensity.

The man who never in his mind and thoughts traveled to heaven is no artist.

The road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom.

The true method of knowledge is experiment.

You never know what is enough unless you know what is more than enough.

What is now proved was once only imagined.

To see the world in a grain of sand, and to see heaven in a wild flower, hold infinity in the palm of your hands, and eternity in an hour.


Thanks for visiting, please be sure that I read each and every one of your kind comments, I appreciate them all. Stay tuned.

Dear Carraol,
these macrophotographs, close ups, zooms out a general framework to deal with the detail. Thus the associations to diminish the reality and the work becomes abstract, it becomes art!
A big hug with admiration
