I CANNOT ESCAPE: THE PAST, MY PRESENT


 

I construct my memories with my present. I am lost, abandoned in the present. I try in vain to rejoin the past: I cannot escape

 

Jean-Paul Sartre (1905–1980), French novelist, dramatist, philosopher, political activist.

  1. Such a beautiful barn! Love this photo, Chessie.

  2. Sartre said a lot of weird stuff… existentialism is the most depressing philosophy ever invented. But that barn is not depressing. It is “weathered but not beaten” somehow. Comes from the past, brings purpose to the present… and, as always, a stunning shot.

    • You’re not kidding. (existentialism depressing) I always try to bring something to the photo by using the quotes to “speak” to us. What I like about these quotes, is that it is OUR OWN experiences and our own methods of association that enhance and extend the visual/mental experience of both pieces. Thank you for bringing this discussion forward. I like to know what people are thinking when they view the photo in relation to the quote!

  3. Stunning photo! So many of your shots simply ooze character. Amazing!

  4. Dave, with your own artistic literalistic abilities, I do feel flattered when you tell me stuff like this. Thank you for coming to see and comment. πŸ˜‰
