a very nice crumble…

Time ravages that which has lost its use. That slow corruption is felt most keenly by the vain.  Vanity is not a characteristic of nature or the inanimate which allows us to marvel at their slow disintegration.

    They do like a good crumble in France. My French friend Cécile, says her grandmother doesn’t like the English moving into her village, but she does like the way that they renovate the houses 😉

    I really enjoyed Driving Over Lemons, also A Year in Provence. I love photographing things that are deteriorating or desiccated (two c’s 🙂 Favourite topics for still life photos are dried/dead flowers and seed pods, bark and all kinds of things thought to be passed their usefulness. They are beautiful. Lovely, dreamy film Roger.

    Damn it, Roger, now you have made me cry ’cause I understand only too well . . . . your film compilation actually comes across as much stronger than your usually brilliant photos . . . . and it is Leo Ferre helping you set the mood milord, is it not . . . . as Tanya says . . . relate . . .

    Surprisingly moving post, Roger. I mean, I do find it moving to see Time overtake what were once productive and cherished farms and homes. But I came here thinking I’d see a photo of a wonderful fruity confection.
