and it is just the same in every house in every town.For in this world,time does pass,but little happens.Just as
little happens from year to year,little happens from month to month,day to day. If time and events are not the same

I would say: the sad, old house… Great B & W. I like the mood of this picture.
Just a beautiful and insightful post. The photo is thought-provoking and artful. I love the stillness captured here so well.
nice pic – I suspect it might be a barn but I’m being too picky.
Here’s a quote I posted yesterday.

You have to know how much I like this image. Exceptional and you’ve paired with perfect words.
Very nice head on composition. Looks great in B&W too. This seems like it might have been a hike to get into position for this. Interesting commentary.
This photo is perfect in black and white… i don’t think it would have the same impact in color. I like your accompanying text also… I read that book…a good read!
I love this image… and the story. Right off the bat I am not sure I agree. What is suffering then? Aging? The passage of time? Are they even real? In my imagination I can see it all.
