Valley Of Forgotten Memories by gilad Valley Of Forgotten Memories by gilad

I can hardly remember the way you use to smile
I can hardly picture you when I go through childhood memories
I can hardly recall the sound of voice talking to me
I can only remember how much I miss what we could have had
In the valley of forgotten memories


****

Infra Red with Hoya R72 filter and the Nikon D70.

The poem is so beautiful.......... :';)
I'm certain people experience this some point in their lives;
I have too.
And the way you expressed it was so wonderful.
The photo went perfectly well with the poem too.
The colours are amazing and everything is perfect.
I even like the touch of the cross there. ;)



Fyi, this time I read the poem first before looking at the photo... Just thought I'd let you know.

I quite love this one. There's a romanian poet, George Bacovia, in his poetry such skies are the usual scenery. Lead heavy greyish skies.

פה למשל הפריים מוקפד ביותר. העובדה שיש רווח בימין אליו הצלב נוטה עושה את התמונה להרבה יותר מדהימה. והו הו ! היא מדהימה.
אני נהנת פה כל פעם מחדש. מקווה להגיע לרמות הצילום שלך....

I don't know if you're even reading this but this made me really wonder. I mean the whole consept, the poem and the picture.

If we all have so many "lost" or just old childhood and youth friends, do we have our own valley of forgotten memories or is it just public?

Anyway, this pic is amazing. Even if it's a cross, I don't see this ugly or Christian in any way. Or not UGLY, I mean that not so much as an advertisment to church...

Okay, maybe that's enough. Thank you for posting this picture, it's really unique :hug:
