Photographer's Note

A little joke with my The Usual Suspects theme to mark my

First Anniversary on TE

Given: 200 photos posted; 2422 critiques written; 60 workshops made
Received: Countless!

I would like to thank everyone for your friendship and support. It's been a truly wonderful year! There's no other community like this. Magnum they say? TE really has the best photographers in the world. Working for free ;)

This time I will let the beautiful Cristina Branco sing the notes for the photo (that was taken on the North Coast of Madeira on a very beautiful rocky beach). I hope you can feel with both the picture and the song a real sip of Portugal. Here are the lyrics for you to sing along and feel the sweet ocean breeze in your face.

Sete Pedaços de Vento / Seven Gusts of Wind

Entrego ao vento os meus ais / I loose my wailing to the wind,
Onde o desejo se mata / Where desire is quenched.
Sete desejos carnais / Seven carnal desires
Que o meu desejo desata / That my desire unleashes

Meus lábios, estrelas da tarde / My lips, stars in the afternoon
Sete crescentes de lua / Seven crescent moons
Que o desejo não me guarde / That this desire doesn't keep me
Na vontade de ser tua / From longing to be yours

Quero ser, eu sou assim / I want to be, and so I am
Sete pedaços de vento / Seven gusts of wind,
Sete rosas num jardim / Seven roses in a garden
Num jardim que eu própria invento / In a garden I invented myself.

Sete ares de nostalgia / Seven nostalgic airs,
Sete perfumes diversos / Seven diverse perfumes
Nos cristais da fantasia / The birth of a loving
Amante de amores dispersos / Fantasy of lovers gone.

Sete gritos por gritar / Seven cries to shout,
Sete silêncios viver / Seven silences to bear.
Sete luas por brilhar / Seven moons to shine
E o céu pr'a me acontecer / And one sky for it all to echo across

Entrego ao vento os meus ais / I loose my wailing to the wind,
Onde o desejo se mata / Where desire is quenched.
Sete desejos carnais / Seven carnal desires
Que o meu desejo desata / That my desire unleashes

Meus lábios, estrelas da tarde / My lips, stars in the afternoon
Sete crescentes de lua / Seven crescent moons
Que o desejo não me guarde / That this desire doesn't keep me
Na vontade de ser tua / From longing to be yours

Que o desejo não me guarde na vontade de ser tua / That this desire doesn't keep me from longing to be yours
Que o desejo não me guarde na vontade de ser tua / That this desire doesn't keep me from longing to be yours
