One Month of Haiga – February 22, 2016


Yesterday I didn’t have a chance to take photos as I was busy with the Lame del Conte, my historical re-enactment club.  But the photos I’d taken the night before have left me with a wonderful choice of photos to work with.

I love sunsets, something much more difficult to see in a mountain valley than here in the plains.   Here the sun seems to literally erupt into colourful shades of yellow, pink and blue.  In a winter sunset you also have trees and bushes that make a lovely sketch against the coloured sky.  The photo I chose has all that plus the electric train wires of the Milan – Venice train-line.  Seeing the combination enthralled me (in person the view was actually breath-taking!).  The theme I’ve chosen for today though is not sunsets and not strictly  nature – I’m thinking more of the interaction between:

Mankind and Nature

How the countryside (or the city around us) shows mankind’s passage on our planet … for good and for ill. We are cultivating in our collective memory a terrible sense of guilt, and I suppose we have a lot to reflect upon each day we live on our planet of our impact both on Earth and our fellow creatures.  However I think feeling guilty is rather silly.  When you recognize you’re doing something in a wrong way, you should rectify your course, not feel guilty and then keep on doing the things that you know are wrong.  So let’s just look at what we have around us and testify to what we see and leave the rest to a future post.   Here then, is my haiga for today:

  4. An interesting prompt. It took me quite a while to think up a response. I have also set up a new blog – the first one had technical difficulties. Sorry for the inconvenience.
