After The Slummy Stop

A deep track after the slummy stop was awaiting me. Life can be simple and still be hard. I kept going.

I greeted everyone here and there with my camera, with a lot of excitement, 


like most of the celebrities, and cicadas do, but one of later was awfully quiet. It turned round and round a tree trunk. And I turned round too trying to synchronize but that proved not helpful. It then lost in sight silently to the top of the tree.


I had then arrived, not very long later.

Yes, I had arrived at a conclusion: it was neither easy to live in the world of a king, nor to adventure into a slum. Both required a lot of sweating.



I moved on, and enjoyed moving on.

Masz rację źle w życiu i królowi i biedakowi. Pozdrawiam.
You are right and wrong in the life of the king and the poor man. Yours.

I have been listening to cicadas song,
recorded in Crete, Greece this summer.
A meditation... no sweating involved ; )

Your subject there -- the cicada -- wasn't very cooperative with the King! But you got some great pictures anyway. Lovely forest walk.

Wonderful photos all, but I very much love the light in the third one!

Minoru Saito said...

It's very interesting. I think it's hard to live in anywhere.
BTW, I received your comment notification about my post by email. But I could not find your comment in my comment section. I do not know why.
Wishing you a wonderful weekend.

Sharkbytes said...

That cicada looks a lot different from ours. But perhaps it's a uniform to serve the king.

Cicadas nor celebrities like to be photographed in private even by a king.

Did you listen to the sound of music from the cicada?

Cher said...

be a king or slum, it doesn't really matter because you are rich with wisdom and nature's beauty.

Monika B. said...

I ran into you by accident. I secretly hope they'll let me stay longer. Monika B.

Great capture as usual. I can feel the cool, fresh but slightly mysterious atmosphere in that kingdom.
