Nostalgia

Nostalgia, you know, comes from the Greek
‘Nostos’ and ‘algos’, for homecoming and pain
There is no place on earth that I love as much as this one.
Even the sound of the wind through the leaves is familiar,
The hush of maple, the whisper of locust and wild cherry, the clatter of alder.
Today the first cool breeze of Autumn
carries with it the scent of wild grapes
And my mother making jelly in the kitchen,
And I am a child again
The woods full of mystery and promise
The old barn a playground
Dusty smell of hay and the scent of motor oil
Like my father’s hands on the weekend
A thousand years ago, a thousand lives ago
And yet right before my eyes
Springing forth with such immediacy
Such intensity
That there is no separation, no me
No then, nor now, only forever.
Only nostalgia, and fondness, and time.

You wear strength so well, I forget that you have to take it off at the end of the day; still feeling the marks that it leaves on your soul.

[ENG] Here is a picture of how the gold leaf reacts with light.The final image is always a choice of light showing a specific moment of the day. I like the idea that the subject can represent several atmospheres and evoke the path of the sun from dawn to dusk.[FR] Voici une photo illustrant comment réagit la feuille d’or à la lumière. La prise de vue définitive est toujours un parti pris d’éclairage représentant un moment de la journée. J’aime l’idée que le sujet puisse développer plusieurs atmosphères et évoquer la course du soleil, de l’aurore au crépuscule.http://yoannlossel.blogspot.fr/http://yoannlossel.tumblr.com/http://yoann-lossel.deviantart.com/http://www.etsy.com/fr/shop/yoannlossel
