din diferite stele

Prima ninsoare.

"Din diferite planete,
fulguiau spre noi diferite ființe.
Mirat, nu le găseam rostul,
dar fulguiau, fulguiau.
De bună seamă, mi-am zis,
vremurile sunt indexale,
tentația anonimatului în artă
trebuie generalizata pînă la cântec!
Sau poate, dimpotrivă,
tentația anonimatului în artă
trebuie repudiată prin cântec.
Mirat observam cum fulguiau
din diferite stele
diferite cuvinte."

De Nichita Stănescu din "Starea confensiunii", poeme personale.

First snow.*

"From different planets,
it snowed toward us different beings.
Amazed, I could not find their purpose,
but lightly has snowed, has snowed.
Of course, I said myself,
the times are indexed,
the temptation of anonymity in art
must be generalized until to the song!
Or, maybe, on the contrary,
the temptation of anonymity in art
 must be repudiated through song.
Amazed I have observed, how it snowed
from various stars
different words. "
By Nichita Stănescu from "Status of confession" personal poems.

"Write it on your heart
that every day is the best day in the year.
He is rich who owns the day, and no one owns the day
who allows it to be invaded with fret and anxiety.
Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could.
Some blunders and absurdities, no doubt crept in.
Forget them as soon as you can, tomorrow is a new day;
begin it well and serenely, with too high a spirit
to be cumbered with your old nonsense.
This new day is too dear,
with its hopes and invitations,
to waste a moment on the yesterdays.*"

  1. Absolutely gorgeous wintry photography and great winter sky in the first shot ~ thanks,

    Wishing you a Happy Weekend ~ ^_^

    1. Thank you so much, Carol! Have a very happy weekend, too!

  2. These photos gave me chills! Not just because it looks cold but I'm just really fascinated by snow! I have never seen snow falling ever in my life. This gave me a beautiful glimpse of how it is!

    Greetings from the Philippines!


    1. Thank you so much! Snowing in winter is indeed so lovely! Have a great weekend ahead!

  3. Really beautiful winter shots. I was going to pick a favorite but I can't, there are too many great photos!!

  4. What gorgeous snowy scenes! Everything looks better sprinkled with snowflakes...

    1. Lovely:"sprinkled with snowflakes"... Thank you very much, Fiona!

  5. Alexa, ai realizat, din nou, fotografii splendide! Unele par desprinse din albumul bunicilor. :)
    Fata din parc, cu umbrela, are un catelus in brate sau... am ajuns eu sa vad catelusi peste tot?! :)
    Iti doresc, cu drag, sa ai un weekend minunat si zilele sa imbrace haina de primavara! <3

    1. Multumesc frumos, Diana! Oh, doamna era cu un copilas... ;) :) Cam prea frigut, ce-i drept... Dar, probabil ca nu a rezistat tentatiei de a face o plimbare. Cat despre patina usor invechita aplicata fotografiilor, imi place efectul tare...
      Sa vina primavara, cu al sau alai, abia dupa 21 (*-*) pana atunci iarna, inca, isi mai poate face de cap!! :)
      Sfarsit de saptamana grozav, linistit si plin de pozitivitate! Salutari cu drag!

  6. Stunning snowy landscape shots! I love seeing snow and ice together which you have plenty of both. Of course, I don't like being in this kind of weather so it's nice to gaze on someone's work. :) Nice SWF photos!

  7. So many pretty wintry scenes. And love the choice of selective sepia, especially in the view through the tree bough.

  8. Ce imagini vintage ai reusit! Parca simt mai putin asprimea gerului! :D
    Calul este chiar reusit. Iar arcada este cu totul deosebita! Eu nu mi-am luat niciodata umbrela pe ninsoare, imi place sa simt pe fata fulgii pufosi! Totul e minunat!
    Un weekend la fel si o primavara frumoasa, frumoasa, draga Alexa!

  9. Foarte frumoase. Multumesc ca le-ai postat, nu sunt in stare sa ies la plimbare asa ca imi prind bine pozele:)
    Multa sanatate si fericire iti doresc!

  10. Wonderful collection of fabulous wintry landscape. The snow in all your photos has pearly glow. I prefer the first photo to the second, not totally monochrome but with a few more subtle colors. The coldest part of my winter seems to have passed. It will warm up gradually alternating cold and warm days as is Japanese saying “sankan shion (literally three cold days, four warm days). Have a happy week ahead.


  11. Heisann.... wonderful, still winter where you live? Have a nice week ;:OD)

  12. Boa tarde, nunca tive a oportunidade de passear pela neve e desfrutar das belas paisagens, as fotos partilhas são um encanto, estão perfeitas num todo, causa-me inveja.

  13. Oh Alexa, those winter pictures are stunning in natural black and white and in sepia. So beautiful .. I do not like being cold, but you make it Winter so beautiful I almost wish I could experience it. I have always loved that Emerson poem...good words to follow.

  14. This makes my heart smile, as I love a stroll through snow :) we have not had enough this year where I live.

    I wish you a wonderful weekend :)

  15. A true winter wonderland...makes my snow-loving heart happy
