  1. Visual poetry by all means. There is real dignity in the decay that nourishes new life. The light, quality and framings are perfect for this theme. Wonderful series, as always, Catharine.

  3. Thanks for the comments!
    Thankyou Gail, Maura, Marie, Michael and Alexis!
    Thankyou Richard for the extra bit of Eliot, not too deep but most appropriate.
    Jim, I would love to say I did these with film and filters but due to circumstances I had to “make do” with macro digital and some fun post processing!

    Grazie agli amici italiani Tonino, Nuccia e Rita!

  4. Wow Catharine! Every image superb in every way. I’m particularly fond of the mossy breasts, with the landscape extending beyond them. I love this series!

  5. I love this kind of work, Catherine. I am curious about how you captured this look. Film? Digital? iPhone? It’s also fine if you want to keep your secret. Nice post!

  6. Very evocative photos which fit Eliot beautifully. I could add:
    ” ..And any action
    Is a step to the block, to the fire, down the sea’s throat
    Or to an illegible stone: and that is where we start.
    We die with the dying:
    See, they depart, and we go with them.
    We are born with the dead:
    See, they return, and bring us with them.”

    Little Gidding

    Or is that too deep?

  7. What an amazing series, Catharine. I love the third shot with the barely perceptible critter – the suggestion that life goes on even among the ruins, which is also there in the mossy hairdo and the tiny plant growing out of the claw. Excellent Eliot selection as well.

  8. STUNNING series Catharine…..this majestic, mystical sphinx ~ ! You presented her royally. The parts = the whole. Also, the greenish borders add so much. Bravo!
