Recap

2009 is just few hours away and its better to welcome it with a recap of 2008. Not much to recap though, so I decided to showcase the 15 most popular photos of mine (from Flickr standards).

Photographs

  7. Every photo has a special magical quality! But after much thought, I think "Transparent" is my favourite ~ simply because it seems to melt down the fantasy, the surreal and the real into one playing field. Just beautiful! And love the accompanying cinquain!

  8. Love the photo's! The railway track one ever reaching into the distance gives a kind of endlessness!

    The cinquain is spot on too!

  15. better late than never..!! your photos are awesome.. thank you for posting your favs... love em all... but i am drawn to the no 7 called Omikuji.. does that mean something... mystery, love a mystery... oh, and the cinquain is a soft whisper echoing your photos...

  16. @OMB, thanks

    as for your question

    Omikuji are random fortunes written on strips of paper at Shinto shrines in Japan.

    Literally "sacred lottery" these are usually received by pulling one out randomly from a box that one shakes, hoping for the resulting fortune to be good. The omikuji falls out of a small hole, scrolled up. (Nowadays, these are sometimes coin-slot machines.) Unrolling the piece of paper reveals the fortune written on it. Source
