So this was a video I made about two or three years ago for the same poem. Thought you might find it of interest (i'm rather a fan of cummings)

Sometimes I see photos I instantly like... without really knowing why. Images with some hidden charm. This is a photo of that kind. Very mystique. I was hoping the author would give some hint in his comments. He does not. Still a wonderful photo.

Haha, amazing. This was my top pick in the challenge, and NOW I see it's a ZZ. You and I are in tune, guy... This isn't the first time this has happened by a long shot. I LOVE this image.

Many places of southern Europe, spared from wartime destruction and now discarded by growth economy, share the vanishing charms this image evokes.
Where time and negligence slowly promote modest acts of affordable and undervalued elegance.

On the state of world economy to a North American friend of mine (I rarely resist the boorish act of self quotation): “Growth is a lethal anti-depressant”

Don't know this quote, and can't put my finger on what I like about this pic, but I really like it. Bumping up.

I think I understand the title but not really sure the image does anything for me.

...there's a hell of a good universe next door let's go. Interesting photograph which has me staring through it into the universe. Makes you think like Cummings work does. Good luck on this provocative image. -8-

oh man. is that e.e. cummings? I used to have it written on my binder in high school. :) Not totally sure how it fits the image, but I can see a connection, I think.

Looks like this might have been a "late" Square Crop entry, but it's fantastic for this too. Great shot.
