4xfunky ladies

 

ladies 1ladies 3ladies 2

here some snapshots of people i saw on the streets, funky looking ladies doing this and that. how fascinating it is to observe people and to fantasize about who they are and what they are busy with in life. as a matter of fact, i enjoy it so much, that it was a real challenge for me to focus on myself in the vipassana retreat, and maybe even more so when there is no verbal communication, your mind can go wild with imagination and even just through glances we tend to communicate more than we are aware of.

how is summer treating you out there?

I can see the proof {from your current thought process} that vipassana is really helping you to be more observant, creative and imaginative ! I really love the subject matter/idea of your post and also the photographs of these funky ladies-I wish to be like them when I grow older !
have a nice day !

Yes, especially the 1st pic with the ladies and the big melons touch my attention - so many stories to create about!!!

Geweldig!! Wel dapper, dat je ze gewoon durft te fotograferen.

sarita!!!I'm back from Berlin with 3 film rolls to develop! excited! but first of all, sooo nice photos here!!ay, people...i could spend hours just watching, looking, observating. In the metro is amazing, in Madrid I'm always creating little stories, trying to guess some things just from how people look. The other day I found this nice blog (http://undergroundnewyorkpubliclibrary.com/, it is from a girl that takes in picture all the people she crosses in the underground in new york reading a book. And she always tries to get the book they're reading. It is so interesting!
German summer is stormy-sunny: rain, and then an amazing blue sky. But in 10 days I'll be back in Madrid!How is your summer??
:)besos

Lieve Sara, wat een lief berichtje op mijn blog, ontroerend zo vanuit de digitale wereld. Ik denk er ook heel veel over, wat is er dan daarna... Blijven we elkaar zien/voelen/ blijft ze op me letten. Ik lees er ook over. Maar het boeddhisme is er al zoveel verder in. Ik vind het knap dat je er mee bezig bent, ik kan er ook 'verward' van raken. Zeker nu. Mocht je nog mooie boekentips hebben of andere wijsheden dan lees ik ze graag. Fijne avond!

Funny and interesting idea for a research about amazing people. here in the south of France, there's a lot. One day, i'll take pictures for you! And, the summer is hot and "windy" (excuse my english) here!

hej rara! förstår verkligen att du blev distraherad. vilka fantastiska damer du hittat att fota :) helt galet vad mycket liv som rör sig där, och som du delar med oss. Tack! här är det rörigt och mycket fast vi bara är hemma mest, och sommar fast ganska kall, men massor blir gjort och jag håller på att glida in i den där magiska känslan med sommaren när det börjar skymma, ändå, och jag tror det blir tokbra det här för jag hittar känslan allltmer och Liten hänger med på allt med ett jätteleende och iver och supersocial och de andra får lära sig att hitta på saker när det är trist och det är oskcå bra. vi har det fint faktiskt. och jag o mannen ser varann tydligare nu och närmre, särskilt som han fått nya glasögon, och det är ju fint (ler)
fint att skrivas mer. tänker på dig..mmm...

kramar en lördag, Lycke

la dolce vita, me too, wish to be like them when i grow older! so nothing is stopping us i guess? :) and yes, the vipassana is having its after play... and i am trying to keep up the daily meditations. enjoy your day!

barbara, yes right? and it could have been a few decades ago, with her sjal in the hair...

iris, soms ben ik helaas niet zo dapper, maar ik probeer het steeds meer te doen! :)

martita, hope to see your three rolls soon! i just went to pick up a few, was very excited about it, haven't developed any films in a loooong time, and unfortunately one was empty! oh well, i had to laugh about it. i will check out this blog, what a great concept!
are you looking forward to go back to madrid? my summer is good, many different things all the time and still working here and there. in the end of august i will go to sweden and germany, looking forward! besos

eefje, oh kan ik mij voorstellen dat je verward wordt. ik heb ook zo een heftige periode gehat toen mijn vriendin uit rotterdam is overleden. ik kan wel 'the tibetan book of living and dying' aanraden, maar is ook soms een beetje zwaar! kan ook een beetje hier en daar lezen en niet de hele boek. warme knuffel!

elle, hello and welcome! would love to come to south of france and photograph the characters there! and perhaps you will catch me with your camera? :)

geoffrey, indeed! something shiny! ahaa!

lycke rara, tack for din kommentar. jag tror jag ringer dig nar jag kommer till sverige igen, men det drojer ett tag. stora kramar sa lange, titta hos dig jag har skrivit dar.

Marieke said...

Merel said...
