    Barry -

    ' A fish supper must have only salt and vinegar. I may allow good homemade tartare sauce. Am I wrong again? - no spot on for me mate. In Edinburgh - they have salt and sauce. That's just wrong. Much like your porridge. Ha ha.

    'Could be a Celtic thing,' - probably.

    We are well off track gentlemen - anybody fancy posting an image to get back on thread? yours - I.

    This was taken with my phone on holiday, it calms me & I can hear the waves & the "bubbles" when it foamed at the end.

    SR-Trafalgar1.jpg

    Talking of Nelson - Turner's rendition of the battle of Trafalgar. He wasn't there. Nelson - in my opinion - was a maniac. He had been previously disciplined for breaking the line and not obeying orders but in this case it payed off. Other than the fact he was mortally wounded during the engagement. Yours - I.

    SR-Ahmed-1.jpg

    This is quite personal - photographer unknown. I learned tonight that my next door neighbour - Mrs Ahmed died on Tuesday. As is the norm with Islamic burials - and indeed Jewish - the burial is quick. It should happen before sun up on the next day to death. I didn't get a chance to show my respects. I will never forget her - at Eid - she would come to the door with a tray of the finest food you have ever eaten. I'm heart broken for Mr Ahmed - he's lost his partner of 52 years. She and he were Sufi Muslims. The antidote to the idiocy of an idea of a Caliphate. She was buried in a winding sheet - in the south of Glasgow - facing towards Mecca. Amusingly - the Jewish cemetery is just next door. Facing the same way. Hopefully taken to Allah. Forgive me this is a personal post. I'm quite upset. I.

  10. I am so sorry to hear this sad news but your words have been so eloquently written that I am sure Mrs Ahmed would be so proud of you.
    My thoughts are with you and the Ahmed family.
    Take care and god bless,
    Wayne.
     
  11. A beautifully captured Picture Shaun.

    There is nothing better in this world than listening to the crashing sound of waves IMO.

    I was brought up in Sidney, Australia and spent my youth at Cougee Bay.
    A memory that I still long for and will never forget.

    Take care,
    Wayne.

  12. +1 I echo Wayne's comments. P.
     
  13. An eloquent expression of loss Iain. Sad news.
     
  14. That's a startling image.

  15. Yes, quite unnerving in some way.
     
  16. It certainly is.

    H- that's astonishing. Eyes that have never seen? I.

  18. The eyes are the first thing that I have focused on. They are mesmerizing.
    Almost doll like and as if in a trance?

    When you start looking deeper into the capture you begin to immediately realise the sadness in this photo.
    The scar on the child's face is so disturbing. The inevitability of it all.

    A picture that I hate to say I am so pleased was taken.
    Purely due to the fact that it is there for the record and nobody should ever take things for granted no matter how bad circumstances may be for us at times.
    We must even then appreciate our bad times because there is always people a lot worse off than us.

    I hope I am not coming across as preaching folks but in all honesty I am writing what I am currently thinking and truly mean.

    Wayne.

    SR-JP-Wtkin.jpg

    H - unsettling, discomfiting but compelling images. Joel Peter Witkin - from 'Gods of Earth and Heaven.' I have posted this guy's work before - I find it fascinating, if dark. He concerns himself with the liminal - recurring themes are still lives using corpses, hermaphrodites, inter-sex, the mutilated and people that general society would consider - physically anyway - at the edges. It's difficult to find stuff to post - due to its content. This is one of my favourite images by him. His pictures are meticulously planned and hugely referential to classical, medieval and Renaissance themes. I read an interview with the model in this picture - in answer to the idea that she being exploited or used as a 'grotesque,' - she replied that this was the first time in her life that she had felt beautiful and was treated so. cheers - I.
