waterfall - on white
thoughts of him
the doorknob turns.
her breath catches…
Da Vinci- Love this..
No one before Bernini had managed to make marble so carnal. In his nimble hands it would flatter and stream, quiver and sweat. His figures weep and shout, their torses twist and run, and arch themselves in spasms of intense sensation. He could, like an alchemist, change one material into another - marble into trees, leaves, hair, and, of course, flesh.

photos by jeff dai in tibet and sichuan, china. the first photo is notable for the colourful airglow (weak atmospheric light emissions) and the gravity waves (most likely from a near by thunderstorm) shown, while the second photo, also showing airglow, has mount everest (or qomolangma, meaning mother of the universe in tibetan) in the background.
