savage-america:


But this dismal land of idleness - from which risk has been banished, untouched by the storms of history, without fear and without future - appears sunk in a perspective that is not only dreamlike but positively funereal, in a world where plenty is reflected in the negative face of sterility: where nature, overturned, forms inhuman and monstrous landscapes, beyond every possible logic and far from every perspective of life. A ‘nature’ where the artificial has destroyed the natural, turning it upside down, altering its biological laws, the periods for the maturation of produce and even the time of animal gestation. A nature unhinged and crazed, which reacquaints us with the sinister memory of the Polynesian atoll where, after the atomic Big Bang, the tortoises lost their innate sense of orientation, and instead of directing themselves towards the water and life, turned their backs to it, setting out towards death.

"It was autumn, the springtime of death. Rain spattered the rotting leaves, and a wild wind wailed. Death was singing in the shower. Death was happy to be alive."

Tom Robbins, from Still Life with Woodpecker (Bantam Books, 1980)

Belgrade is really not the city of high-rises, but the geographical position really nurtures it’s panoramas well. :)- pic from Twitter: https://twitter.com/BgDisident/status/524062921136291840

"I go along with the consensus that there’s too much visual stuff floating around and it’s become a distraction while devaluing what serious image-makers contribute. I miss texture and nuance when I see everything onscreen or produced with digital media. I do enjoy some of the crazy juxtapositions on Tumblr sites, but mostly online photography is a boring, yet compulsive, bottomless pit."
