Picture Perfect: SHADES of GRAY

“I saw Chungking for the first time more than 40 years ago –

a city of hills and mists,
of grays and lavenders,
two rivers shaping it to a point
and the cliff rising above me like a challenge.”


Theodore H. White
(1915-1986)
(American Journalist)

This photograph taken by me last summer in Ireland, just as it was about to rain, reminds of this saying by Theodore H White, even though, he was speaking of China, and I am talking about Ireland!

And, as to whether it is ‘grey’ or ‘gray’ here is a link to an article on the differences between the British and the US English. I personally prefer the American version on this particular word, ‘Gray’ –  for it looks so much prettier than the plain-old-dull ‘Grey’.

Hard to beat the Blonde’s logic on this, eh?!!

(Not a thing has been done to the photo, it is just as it was when clicked & taken!)

I find that there is nostalgia somehow in this photograph taken in Ireland in the summer of 2006:
the tracks of the aeroplanes, the hills,
and the setting sun
add to the feeling of dreaminess and longing.

Yet, it is not despairing for the connection of the lovers is there.
