When Things Come Alive

when words fade and
things come alive.
When the destructive analysis of day is done, and all that is
truly important becomes whole and sound again.
When man reassembles his fragmentary self and
grows with the calm of a tree.
                                   – Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

The man who has seen the rising moon break out of the clouds 
at midnight has been present like an archangel at the

But seemed far beautifuller than its day

Day, like a weary pilgrim, had reached the western gate of heaven, and
Evening stooped down to unloose the latchets of his sandal shoon.

more richly colored than the day.

It’s so true that night fall make things come alive in a different way. The colors are more rich and tones are beautiful at night. Phenomenal works in this series made this so very special and unique experience to view. All the masterpieces speak about itself and truly came alive infront of viewer’s eyes. That’s the miraculous power of your priceless and ageless works Sir! ❤️❤️🙏🏼✨

Beautiful – Will visit the Steve Mc Curry exibition at the Antwerp Waagnatie tomorrow
