What does it mean to die?
To exist long enough not to?
What is the meaning of today with out tomorrow?? To have held and never to anymore??
How can one explain death?
To become element to earth,
To be a past tense??
What is it to be something and then Nothing??
How does one die without living??
Life, a borrowed time, an illusive shackle.
How does one lose what wasn't theirs??
A never ending chase to attain an ever changing destination.
What's to lose that has never been had??
Deliver us all from this madness,
Have mercy on us, God!! #travel#mumbai#1970s
Another gem from the editorial I posted on my blog yesterday. I find this image fascinating. My immediate reaction to seeing it was that it reminded me of the first Roxy Music album cover. Then I saw it was photographed by Karl Stoecker, who actually took the photos for that album cover. As this editorial predates the first Roxy album by a year, it's interesting to ponder the origins of that iconic image of Kari Ann Muller... #karlstoecker#roxymusic#19magazine#1970s
(June) A Month of 1970's American Cinema - The Godfather Part Two (1974), Directed by Francis Coppola.
An amazing film, a sequel to The Godfather, but also a prequel. Coppola gives us the rise of the family under Vito Corleone and the decline of the family under his son Michael. The parallel story of two men about the same age, father and son.
One of the artistic high points of American Cinema in the 1970s.
The screenplay was by Coppola and Mario Puzo. Cinematography by Gordon Willis. Film Editing by Barry Malkin, Richard Marks and Peter Zinner. Production Design by Dean Tavoularis. Musc by Nino Rota
The film stars Al Pacino, Robert Duvall, Diane Keaton, Robert DeNiro, John Cazale, Talia Shire, Lee Strasberg. Michael V. Gazzo
The won the Oscar for Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor (Robert DeNiro), Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Art Direction-Set Decoration, Best Original Score.
The film was also nominated for Best Supporting Actor (Michael V. Gazzo and Lee Strasberg), Best Supporting Actress (Talia Shire) and Best Costume Design.
Another great sanatorium interior, this time in the Panorama in Krynica-Zdrój. This hotel and treatment centre looms over the town like a giant cruise ship. The hike up the hill was rewarded by another ceramic wall, multi-storey glass sculpture, retro balustrades and fantastic room divider. The view from the terrace was great and they have a swimming pool and sauna too. Am I beginning to sound like the Polish tourist board?! #modernism#retro#interiordesign#sanatorium#ceramics#krynica#1970s#houseplants#upholstery#Poland#spatown
