Robert...another talented writer "Among the Living" William Michaelian, the man who watches :)

Denise Scaramai said...

this photo is an excellent work!
says it all by itself; title, quality, scene. Very intimate.
Your eyes penetrate our eyes when
the observed with persistence, and we feel the other side, next to you.
Among the Living.

Thanks, Janice. Robert is a wonderful writer and photographer. There’s magic and nourishment in his blog. We’re privileged indeed to have made his acquaintance.

And Denise, it’s wonderful to hear you say that. Thank you!

William & Janice- Thank you both so very much.

The eyes...

William Michaelian said...

Robert, I thank you. Your poem is a generous, beautiful surprise.

Giuseppe Marroni said...

Buena foto, entre vivientes y espectante, sin decir palabra, parece que no tiene boca sin la posibilidad de hablar, en cambio los ojos lo dicen todo.

William Michaelian said...

Giuseppe, thank you. I think that is a good characterization....

And I’ve been enjoying your blog.

What huge pupils you have!

The better to see you with my dear.

Ha! I want to tell you to lighted up...but people are always telling me that too. And just when I thought a glimpse of lip was possible...foiled again by the slats.

William Michaelian said...

Funny — as soon as you said “slats,” I thought of Slats Grobnik. Shows how my mind works... or how it doesn’t.

Behind that slat is a mostly smoked smashed cigar — I’m so clumsy.
