// Starry, starry night. Flaming flowers that brightly blaze. // @fakasze -
The christmas lights are out in #Copenhagen!
P.s: I should have used ISO 800 or find out how to properly post-process noisy-high ISO images. 🤧
“Names are not important, he said. To speak is to name names, but to speak is not important. A thing happens once that has never happened before. Seeing it, a man looks upon reality. He cannot tell others what he has seen. Others wish to know, however, so they question him saying, 'What is it like, this thing you have seen?' So he tries to tell them... But they have not looked upon fire. They cannot really know it. They can only know of it. But fire comes again into the world, many times. More men look upon fire... So they look upon this new thing and they make a new word to call it. They call it 'fire’... If they come upon one who still has not seen it and they speak to him of fire, he does not know what they mean. So they, in turn, fall back upon telling him what fire is like... He must look upon the fire, smell of it, warm his hands by it, stare into its heart, or remain forever ignorant. Therefore, 'fire' does not matter, 'earth' and 'air' and 'water' do not matter. 'I' do not matter. No word matters... He looks upon the great transformations of the world, but he does not see them as they were seen when man looked upon reality for the first time. Their names come to his lips and he smiles as he tastes them, thinking he knows them in the naming. The thing that has never happened before is still happening. It is still a miracle. The great burning blossom squats, flowing, upon the limb of the world, excreting the ash of the world, and being none of these things I have named and at the same time all of them, and this is reality-the Nameless.”

Dear Yosemite, I miss you! ⛰
I really love US national parks and I’m hoping to explore many more in the future! Yosemite definitely took my breath away. Have you ever been?
