[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [French]
Oui, c'est la vie. Après le jour, la nuit livide.
Après tout, le réveil, infernal ou divin.
Autour du grand banquet siège une foule avide;
Mais bien des conviés laissent leur place vide,
Et se lèvent avant la fin.

Hi Jean,
Phantoms? Oh no! I have more questions than answers. I can only think from the translation--this is about friendship that was thought to be, but was not? The empty seats--do they represent a "phantom" of what is an illusion? Or is it the person whom the verse addresses that is this "phantom" or both? You see now, why I do not comment so much on abstracts? This is the best I can give.
Take care!

Hi Jean,
Beautiful colours and curves did you use to capture the phantom.
Especially the curves used this way are a new element for your composition.
It gives a vivid scene.
Groet Rob

Ce fantome habite une église!? Ce serait une bonne question à lui demander. Les fantomes ont-il le choix de croire en un dieu ou d'être athé. Création plus sinueuse. Très intéressant. Le verre emprunte aux horloges molles. Mais il peut bien le faire... Les fantomes n'évolue pas dans le même temps que nous.

Et le proverbe ne dit-il pas que: La nuit... tous les fantomes sont blanc!

Bonjour Votre Majesté !
Encore une composition magistrale et ésotérique comme vous êtes seul à en avoir le secret ...
Ce pourrait être le fantôme de l'Opéra ... je n'aimerais pas le croiser au coin de la rue. A moins que ce ne soit le Phantom of Paradise !

jolie travail de PP.
qui donne bien dans l'abstrait!
quand au fantomes...faut il y croire ou non ?
tel est la question!

today's colors are a bit more dark and more intriguing, i like the way u compose and edit the photos yet still able to retain the mood and originality of the photos.....i like the repetition u did, with just a touch of difference in unique representation. my best regards, JP.

I wish I could see Jesus' pictures a little larger in this one. I love the 'S' curve in the presentation. The stained glass adds a nice splash of colour.

This one is a little too complex... It has a great visual impact and I love the way you've composed it, with that "curviness". The colour game is great, but I think I can only see the surface of this composition, yet!
I which I new more French to understand the note properly :-)
Well done.
Au revoir Jean.

phantoms leave the banquet of life very early in the morning.. seem to fall slowly, but with no stop.
Oh, lucky the ones who stay till the end!!
montage and colors are fantastic, as always ;-)
All my congrats, rallyman!

that's very interesting and abstract
very good effect

Des courbes maintenant ? Très bel ajout à ton art qui t'es si personnel. Bravo. Amitié, Patty.

Hello Jean,
I will give you my thoughts in this forum, for I am unable to reach you outside of this. I found this hard for it seemed personal, but I will leave this here for you.
Your imagery is powerful on the openness that the enjoyment of the banquet is not happening for you. Your intelligence I can feel and your study of man and his interpreted words have brought you to the level of disassociation with reality. Seeing the reflected jadedness of the world with so much meaning to the extent there is no meaning. Standing in the great doorway. I interpret that you have come face to face with the illusion of time and space, leaving you somewhat settled into a complete collapse of darkness and despair. For this is a doorway beyond and out of the illusion, although it seems to be despair until the change has completely moved you through the doorway. A step met and needed before the doorway opens and the illusion is no more. Pulled out of the matrix of experiential humanity for the Souls commitment has changed.
That last stand of your association with the illusion of reality that is represented, in my honesty through your artwork you present to the world. It seems you are standing on the threshold(doorstep) of a great change in which you stop reaching for the illusion and you start to pull your energy from a different place. The great Void. Beyond Belief

My honesty to you Jean


I did not have room for the translation!

This is too much! How did you do this?
You made a whole universe of shapes, colours and also a good dimenstion.
You need only gravitation and the world is complete.
Static object, this statue take a dinamyc form through your PP.
