________________

When you look at this food photo, please listen to this song "Cavatina," http://goo.gl/3lhZ1f. Listen with your whole heart Ana Vidovic's profound and beautiful virtuosic guitar play. The sound she creates is like the articulate sound of the flowing water in a stony brook. Turn up the volume so you can listen clearly and deeply to her wonderful music. And then enjoy the flowing line presented in this food photo. 

Finally I manage to create a food photo of my favorite Greek-inspired watermelon and cherry tomato salad with olive oil + lime/lemon juice + salt + black pepper. My Indonesian friends are really hooked by it and call this salad "Rujak Yunani." 

Oh yes, my beloved heirloom Mexican cucamelon hydroponic plants are also in this picture, at the upper left corner.

"To take a picture is done by the simple push of a button. To make an image that goes beyond the moment and lasts and lingers and stands the test of time is to me something entirely different. I have been shooting images now for 20 years and looking back I have only managed to create 10 or so of these images a year…"
— Erik Ålmas

This is the place where he goes with his parents surfing and watching the sunset. This is the place that endows him the peaceful humble nature.

"I am not attracted to straight angles or to the straight line, hard and inflexible, created by man. I am attracted to free-flowing sensual curves. The curves that I find in the mountains of my country, in the sinuousness of its rivers, in the waves of the ocean, and on the body of the beloved woman. Curves make up the entire universe, the curved universe of Einstein.

Não é o ângulo reto que me atrai, nem a linha reta, dura, inflexível, criada pelo homem. O que me atrai é a curva livre e sensual, a curva que encontro nas montanhas do meu país, no curso sinuoso dos seus rios, nas ondas do mar, no corpo da mulher preferida. De curvas é feito todo o universo, o universo curvo de Einstein." 
— Oscar Niemeyer, "The curves of time — As curvas do tempo"

Solo e Pensoso

Solo e pensoso i piú deserti campi 
vo mesurando a passi tardi e lenti, 
e gli occhi porto per fuggire intenti 
ove vestigio uman l'arena stampi.

Altro schermo non trovo che mi scampi
dal manifesto accorger de la genti,
perché negli atti d'alegrezza spenti
di fuor si legge com'io dentro avampi.

Sí ch'io mi credo omai che monti e piagge,
e fiumi e selve sappian di che tempre
sia la mia vita, ch'é celata altrui.

Ma pur sí aspre vie, né sì selvagge
cercar non so, ch'Amor non venga sempre
ragionando con meco; et io co' lui.

Francesco Petrarca 14° secolo

"Voici mon secret. Il est très simple: on ne voit bien qu'avec le cœur. L'essentiel est invisible pour les yeux — Here is my secret. It is very simple: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye."
— Le Petit Prince, Antoine de Saint Exupéry

I'm in the mood for love of Ammoudi Bay, Oia, Santorini, Greece. I love Oia more and more when I look at this heavenly village from Ammoudi Bay at the food of the cliff. Never mind the steep steps. This image is dedicated to sis Zahira Ameen Mariam and Linda Ann Long-Moulaison for their wonderful love to me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I'M IN THE MOOD FOR LOVE
Lyric by Dorothy Fields and Jimmy McHugh 
Sung by Bryan Ferry
"In the Mood for Love" trailer (Bryan Ferry's track)

I'm in the mood for love
Simply because you're near me
Funny, but when you're near me
I'm in the mood for love
Heaven is in your eyes
Bright as the stars we're under
Oh, is it any wonder?
I'm in the mood for love
Why stop to think of whether
This little dream might fade?
Let's put our hearts together
Now we are one, I'm not afraid

If there's a cloud above
If it should rain, we'll let it
But for tonight forget it
I'm in the mood for love
Why stop to think of whether
This little dream might fade?
Let's put our hearts together
Now we are one, I'm not afraid
If there's a cloud above
If it should rain, we'll let it
But, for tonight, forget it
I'm in the mood for love
