|The value of life lies not in the length of days, but in the use we make of them; a man may live long, yet live very little.|
- Michel de Montaigne
Marriage as StatusWhen marriage is viewed as a sacrament, the one who affirms gay marriage is simply wrong. But this is because the sacrament is clearly (or to some, narrowly) defined. There are those who do not recognize the sacred, however, and there are those who see no value the vocabulary of sacrament. That's fair, and it's also the world/culture we happen to live in. It requires those of us to who see it as both religious and social to further reflect on what we mean by marriage in the social sphere.Marriage as Status by TESM
Marriage as a legal concept is a status, and since many have condemned and pushed aside any religion—perhaps justly or unjustly—their main thrust in the arguments surrounding this situation is equal status among heterosexuals. It's not so much that I feel homo- and heterosexuals do not have equal status in the United States insofar as I think good strides have been made to reaffirm that homosexuals (all persons for that matter) are, in fact, human beings and treating them with digni
Die kleine Hurenkoenigin-Geschichte [English]SADNESSDie kleine Hurenkoenigin-Geschichte [English] by Projekt-Zodiac
The sadness was overwhelming all people. This day, the proven most sad day in all eternity until that day, the sun shined brighter than usual.
The people, who took place in the march to the funeral, were uncountable. People, from all over town, all over the land, all over the world, even over the ocean they came to show there sadness.
The little princess looked at her mother, receiving no glance back. She was the first, leading the march. Her mother, after the march ended and all people went back home, even over the sea, was thrown away, carelessly, in the black hole. The princess stood still, watched everything.
She was sad, even sadder than all people missing there queen. She didn’t want her mother gone. Now she was alone, all alone. Alone with that things. These two, watching, touching her, just like they did with her mother. He was scared. Soon she would have to take the crown. She was really scared. The wors

Screaming, with out voice,
Cannot make a noise,
Bleeding, sleeping? No,
I can't! Frightend so!
Help me, pleas? As if...
Laughing, smiling in the riff,
A riff of what?
Oh, you forgot?
I'm sur you're overjoyed
This lie has no plot.
Only me, only you...
All alone, nightmares. Anew.
You, not me, that's not right!
World's cruelty, pulling tight.
All alone, anew. Again.
Gos, I'm begging! Explain!
But no, answer denied,
There is no god. The other side.
Open up, rise again!
My nightmare, you will maintain.
|This group came to be from our desire ( Codruta's and mine) to make a place of our own on DA. A place to be ourselves and to be togeter with other people that see the world in a similar way. We like many things here on DA and we dislike other things as well. |
Art means not only photography. We don't care about the quality of the photo AS LONG as it has feeling. For ourselves didn't have good cameras and struggled a lot to be taken seriously by others.
Art is life and life is art, if you know how to live it. And joy, happiness, are present in our life as well as grief, desolation and mourning. This group is about us and others that feel the same, about our feelings, and the way we manage (or sometimes not) to turn what we feel in art.
I am sorry, but you are not kept here against your will. If you think you don't feel the same, you are free to leave. But not ask of us to give up what we are and what we like.

Monochrome is a term generally used to describe painting, drawing, design, or photograph in one color or shades of one color. Monochromatic light is light of a single wavelength, though in practice it can refer to light of a narrow wavelength range. A monochromatic object or image is one whose range of colors consists of shades of a single color or hue; monochrome images in neutral colors are also known as grayscale or black-and-white.
For an image, the term monochrome is usually taken to mean the same as black-and-white or, more likely, grayscale, but may also be used to refer to other combinations containing only tones of a single color, such as green-and-white or green-and-black. It may also refer to sepia displaying tones from light tan to dark brown or cyanotype (“blueprint”) images, and early photographic methods such as Ambrotype, Tintype and Daguerreotype, each of which may be used to produce a monochromatic image.
Philosophy is the study of general and fundamental problems concerning matters such as existence, knowledge, values, reason, mind, and language. It is distinguished from other ways of addressing fundamental questions (such as mysticism, myth, or the arts) by its critical, generally systematic approach...
The shorter version of all that's writen above:
monochrome pictures only
works need to have a connection with some philosophical current (eg. realism, empiricism, monism)
works need to express/transmit/have a meaning
