getting closer...

... to a winery in Chile! One can see the shape of the bottle from far away. Love the concept and the ad itself!

pictures taken from a moving car!

Ode To Wine

Day-colored wine,
night-colored wine,
wine with purple feet
or wine with topaz blood,
starry child
of earth,
wine, smooth
as a golden sword,
as lascivious velvet,
wine, spiral-seashelled
and full of wonder,
never has one goblet contained you,
one song, one man,
you are choral, gregarious,
at the least, you must be shared.

Pablo Neruda

complete ode can be found here


  1. Hic ! that's a great sign ! Makes me thirsty, lol !

    I am purring like a big cat ! I found a summer school in the Ardennes for a one week training in PHOTOSHOP ! Youpee ! It's for end July !

  2. WoW..some very beautifully captured shots & lovely words...I could already feel the thirst!

  3. LOL! Old Pablo LOVED some wine, didn't he?! That is a GREAT sign too! (it should be on a POSTCARD!)

  4. Mar, great pictures and a wonderful poem by Neruda. Thanks so much! I love your other wordless Wednesday photo "the urban sail" and the street sign. You have a good eye. I'm going to make a favicon, too! Thanks again. :)

  5. I like that sign better than a big one in Virginia, USA of a huge pack of cigarettes!

  6. I see he loves wine like I love tea, and he's a much better poet than me!

  7. That's a cool sign. Love the shot.

  8. I love that sign and I love the poem. I had to go to my Word documents to find My 13 year old's poem from last night to show you

    Ode to Gum

    The moment I placed you in my mouth
    I felt an ice storm building up.
    The icicles formed and
    Cooled the fleshy presence of my gums and tongue.

    Your cold sensation tingled my body
    And your reviving flavor opened my sinuses.
    Your white coverings reminded my of snow
    And your stretchiness wrapped my tongue.

    O thank you Polar Ice for you calming goodness.
    You are like one of a goddess.
    The refreshing properties that you hold with in you,
    Were finally released with every last chew
