    Eva, here you go: http://haikuist.wordpress.com/2009/12/17/haiku-versions-basho-1644-1694/

    I sent you an email as well… 🙂

    Are you familiar with the black & white ocean photography of Hiroshi Sugimoto? I only discovered his work last week…

      Thank you, Josh. namaste. Sugimoto–hmm—sounds familiar–time to explore a new pathway….

    Eva, I can’t find your email addy anywhere here on your blog (either that or I am blind, which is more likely LOL). Would you mind if I used this lovely photo with my recent blog entry, a Basho haiku version I recently posted?

    the sea grows dark,
    a wild duck call
    faint white

    If so, I normally place the Full Name: Title [“Limantour Beach, Point Reyes”] and Year (2009?) underneath as the caption and would link directly to this blog entry to provide credit.

    The blog entry is here: http://haikuist.wordpress.com/2009/12/17/haiku-versions-basho-1644-1694/

    Let me know what you think. If you don’t want me to use it, that’s OK, but this photo is so lovely… My email is haikuist (at) ymail (dot) com

      Josh, I would be honored if you would use this photo with your poetry. merci

    Eva, this is beautiful… It works best being monochrome as well. The partly overcast sky, the distant figure on the beach (barely seen)… it has a quiet gentle loneliness to it that really appeals to me.

    Beautiful photo! The shadows in the water and on the sand intermingle with the clouds. There is stillness in this photo. A second before and a second after feeling, is that the sand or the water pulling back? Is that a person walking towards you or away? Is it a person at all? There is a round-ish shape across from the figure, is that an overturned boat, or a whale? That swirl in the forefront, made from your camera or not?

    So many questions! For me they would bring out a poem or a story or both…

    This is a stunning photo!

    • December 23, 2009 at 5:49 pm

      Merci! It’s an image that seems to hold it’s own small or large. waves

    Ahh..lovely. Love the greys, and I love this image. Not just for the colors…but for the oneness of elements it seems to attain.

    • December 23, 2009 at 5:48 pm

      Thank you, Juicer. The glory of Black and White Photography. Glad you enjoy it.

    Did you take this photo, Eva? It is absolutely breathtaking. I like the figure in the distance.A nice touch is the bit of warmth in the lower left. This screams a story line don’t you think?

    • December 23, 2009 at 5:47 pm

      I confess, Leslie–I did indeed take this photo. A story line? hmm–a poem at least seems in order.
