The Waste Land














One by one, they were all becoming shades……..James Joyce


About NgTom

Three fundamental constituents support my life; they are literature, philosophy and photography. And I am rather glad that I don't really need them to sustain my living. But, it only implies my incompetent.

    Excellent image and very intriguing subject. At first I wasn’t sure what was going on with the roof till I looked at the enlargement. The green of the plants enhances the sense of Nature over-powering the works of man. This composition would have a much harder intense quality in B &W, but would also de-emphasize the sense of natural world. it would be all about the collapsing structure.

  2. Nice texture and detail.

  3. As an artist, I say this is a beautiful shot…but somehow there is an underlying theme of great sadness.

    The more I gaze, the more I see the loneliness.

    Am I wrong? Does someone live there or, is it abandoned?

    Great capture; it just oozes with emotion.

    Incidentally, I found it interesting that you quoted one writer (Joyce) and used the title of another (T.S. Eliot).

  6. i find this image very peaceful, but I have always felt a measure of peace in loneliness as though one can finally rest only when they are completely alone.

      Here we have two conceptions: finally rest and completely alone.
      Are these two conceptions related?
      I really don’t know.
      Before I give you further answers, I thank you to fill the image with new ideas…
