Le Poison by galifardeu Le Poison by galifardeu
Le Poison - Charles Baudelaire

Le vin sait revêtir le plus sordide bouge
D'un luxe miraculeux,
Et fait surgir plus d'un portique fabuleux
Dans l'or de sa vapeur rouge,
Comme un soleil couchant dans un ciel nébuleux.

L'opium agrandit ce qui n'a pas de bornes,
Allonge l'illimité,
Approfondit le temps, creuse la volupté,
Et de plaisirs noirs et mornes
Remplit l'âme au delà de sa capacité.

Tout cela ne vaut pas le poison qui découle
De tes yeux, de tes yeux verts,
Lacs où mon âme tremble et se voit à l'envers...
Mes songes viennent en foule
Pour se désaltérer à ces gouffres amers.

Tout cela ne vaut pas le terrible prodige
De ta salive qui mord,
Qui plonge dans l'oubli mon âme sans remords,
Et charriant le vertige,
La roule défaillante aux rives de la mort!


This is, and will forever be, the last picture i took with my beloved powershot A40..

Bueno, eso siempre pasa. Yo no haría hoy en día casi ningún dibujo como los hice en su momento.

potent image of excess and escape - well done and this creates extreme reaction in the viewer; beautiful light and use of props

:boogie: I am glad you could spend a long time there. Istanbul takes time. It takes time to really understand it, to appreciate the great contrasts in it.
Did you have Turkish friends to show you around? When were u there?
Reply
:icongalifardeu:
galifardeu Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2006
you're right, it's so full of contrasts.. from the huge skyscrapers with seagulls flying over the turkish flags, to the small charmingly dirty streets.
i had a turkish girlfriend for a year yes.. she showed me everything she could i guess ! i think it's the best way to see everything in depth, to have someone used to it show you..
i went there on august 2003

:iconmoonjunkee:
MoonJunkee Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2006
:D Yes, that is definitely the best way to see an unknown city! Istanbul must be painted with love in your mind. :aww:
For all its faults, I miss Istanbul, and Turkey too. It's always changing, always dynamic. Frustrating sometimes, but never boring! :)
This summer when I go back, I will shoot rolls and rolls and rolls of film. ;)
