“It always seemed to me that the herbaceous peony is the very epitome of June. Larger than any rose,
it has something of the cabbage rose’s voluminous quality; and when it finally drops from the vase, it
sheds its petticoats with a bump on the table, all in an intact heap, much as a rose will suddenly fall,
making us look up from our book or conversation, to notice for one moment the death of what had
still appeared to be a living beauty.”
“New York as Utopia/Dystopia” – Torin Rozzelle Photography- 2016
This landscape takes me away – and I appreciate the title. It can be realized as a utopia or a dystopia.
It always brings to me a sense of awe – something magical with kindness and cooperation – a benevolent kingdom. Hope lives there.
Had I seen it after the inauguration…..well………..one can easily see where the dystopia may come in.
What do you see?
I’m a sucker for urban photography/urban landscapes and this NYC landscape by Torin Rozzelle is stunning~
