The Origin of Life

Rate: 30 Flag

 photograph by algis kemezys ,

 

In the beginning there was only slime.

It oozed green from the bowels of the earth, bubbling forth, 

celestial song heralding the moment

 

Please  start over  & watch  with this music for full effect.

In comedy, as in life, 

timing is everything.

It took an eternity for conditions to be right, ripening in exquisite anticipation

Covered in ice, ravaged by wind,

the germ of creation awaits its turn in the evolutionary cycle, 

relentlessly to multiply

At first, some tentative steps.

A few primitive plants, glowingly uncomplicated, mere forebears 

of the glory in store

Primordial life-forms in first blush,

Like brushstrokes of an impressionist master capturing a garden 

of as-yet-undiscovered delights

An undefined amalgam, a bouquet.

A priceless gift from Gaia, the most-generous, the all-giving, all-forgiving 

Mother of us all

This is a time before death.

That will come later. Now life begins. 

It is creation.

And for the moment, indestructible.

And a sad little personal note: I had an accident while shooting the photographs for this post. I slipped on slippery rocks and fell. Thankfully, I got away with minor cuts and bruises, but my camera was smashed wide open, leaving me without proper equipment for the remainder of my trip (the first of the two cameras I had brought having broken down soon after I got here). Currently I'm trying to raise funds so that I can purchase a replacement (exchange of photos for a Canon G12, anyone?).

I hope everyone enjoyed that with the music because if viewed at the right speed it lasts as you scroll down through the entire post. Eventually as life progressed a marvelous thing happened in which the gods of Greece where Born in Stone. Completely reedited with a lot of new Images, here is the link if you want to check it out again. Cheers and thanks !

Wow!! Amazing photos and colours. You have an incredible eye for the beauty of Mother Nature.
So sad to hear about your fall and the loss of your camera. It's like losing a limb. I hope you get a replacement soon. I'd love to see more photos...
...be in Love, not fear...

The Primal Ooze! My ex was a biologist working in the swamps doing vegetation elevation studies. We loved learned it is the basis for all life. The beginning. slimy. green. evolving. thank you for this post!!
So sorry about your accident and happy you escaped with only minor injuries.

You were right, the music adds a whole new dimension to your fantastic offering. The photography is breathtaking.
Ethereal, spiritual, lovely. Those greens! Your talent! So many thanks.
This is so beautiful and inspirational, Algis and Byron...thanks for this reminder that life is so sweeping and vast, and we're each just a part of this ancient, vibrant river.
What a cool collobaration. Nice to be reminded of such magical colors and formations. Things seem so gray here . Your images jolt me out of that for awhile. Thanks, Algis.
OMG... this has to be one of my favourites of yours.
BRAVA!!
And then there was women.

Salutations to Gaia.

They were here in the beginning and they will be here in the end. Germs!
So sorry about your camera, Algis, but glad you are okay. As I was looking at the photos the theme from 2001: A Space Odyssey was Playing in my head.
As I peered into the cells, the crystals of water vapor I saw also the primordial ooze and called it "home."
This was much more beautiful and informative than any science class I have ever taken. Thank you!

I'm sorry to hear about your camera, but so glad you were not hurt. Take care.
This was extraordinary. I was expecting to see a fish sprout legs and start walking. Great stuff. Algis. Sorry about the fall buddy.
I'm so sorry the slime got you, Algis. The photos are magnificent. I hope someone has a camera to trade so we won't have to be deprived of your great work.

Lezlie
Lovely collection of detail images...I'm glad you're OK....the loss of the camera is small compared to the potential loss of your health or even life. Take care....
Amazing as always, Algis. No, that's not right. Amazing, period,otherwise it sounds like you're being taken for granted. Which you are not.

Glad to hear you weren't hurt too badly. Cameras can be replaced...insert platinum platitude here. :)
I feel reborn through your photos and music this morning. Incredible photos, evolving, each one into perfect rhythm and form. Loved the random flowers throughout and the lines and motion you created with your trained eye. So sorry about your fall! Old Mother Nature can sometimes be up to no good. She likes to remind us mere mortals that she is, after all, in charge, here. Hence, life being a "slippery slope" and all. Marvelous post, Alkeme and your treasure trove of photographs and memories.
Pretty Slimy. Hope you are OK. I love the clouds!
So that's what The Primal Ooze looks like.
Hate to break the news but that was FRed(tm)'s tongue after he ate the Aloe plant in my office eons ago.
Damn, we could have made history and all I did was rush him to a vet.

Fantastic post as usual. Thanks for that.
Spectacular retelling of Genesis. Photos that would make God smile (and by God, do I mean National Geographic?).
And then the humble progenitors bring you (us) down to earth in the beginning!
Facebook linked (hopefully someone out there will be able to make you a deal!)
R+
Astounding words & pictures...I felt part of the span of time.
Wonderful as usual
Sad to learn of your fall and damage to your gear
~R~
This was beautiful. I'm glad you're okay after your fall! Sorry about the cameras. ): Technology doesn't seem to like us most of the time, huh? Good luck on your fundraising! (If I had money, I'd contribute.)
Wow! This is very cool! Sorry about your fall and your camera.
fernsy, Yes,spring is green here with millions of plants and things taking advantage of the moisture while it is here. Thanks again F.


Linda Seccaspina, Oh that is so nice to know. Thanks for the Brava and be careful out there on the front lines ! Thanks LS.

zacherydtaylor, Oh my just what this post needed the representation of mother earth and she is quite the person too. This is so fine I have decided to leave it here to. Thanks ZT.


Lea Lane, Thanks LL, So glad you found it like that. I worked really hard on this and you make me so pleased.




Belinda T. Yes mother Gaia rules and I hope we do her some justice and get our act together soon. Thanks again BT.


Erica K, It kind of is like that movie for I feel like an explorer taking images of life like that which might be around the polar caps of Mars. Unfortunately Hal closed the door on my camera! Thanks again EK.

Dicky Neely, Yes, yes and yes. if it were not for this stuff things would be far less oxygenated here. Thanks DN!


baltimore aureole, Ok thanks for the info and of coarse it was like that once upon a time. I decided to start when things started to look good. Thanks again BA!

Midwest Muse, Yes I am going to miss that extension to my perception. Cameras become dearer the more images and events you work on with them. I too keep telling myself thank god I did not break anything because that would be a real drag. Thanks again MM.

scanner, Hee hee hee, You know i was going to put a fish at the very end, one that was grilled on my on plate some days ago to represent that species evolving but then I decided to just let it go. Really liked that last piece of yours with the dog! Thanks S.


Lezlie, yes me too. I am offering a great deal. 10 8x10 images from any of the images presented here at OS. Or some of my gold-toned silver prints from my Holy Cow Show that toured in a number of cities. Or my Mickey Mouse Mimetolith rock from Atlantis. Thanks L.

L in the Southeast


Gary Justis Yes, that is what I keep telling myself but the cheap replacement I got which is about the size of a cigarette box just drives me bonkers. Anyhow I am more like a little old man now that an exploring traveler. Thanks again GJ.




V.Corso, Oh, I like the sentiment and yes cameras can be replaced but that was indeed a dear old friend having taken many of the images that have graced these pages the last few years! Thanks again VC.


Cathy GF Oh that is just such a marvelous thing to say and yes mother nature keeps us on our toes. Thanks again and more CGF.

tg within, Super I love that collection of clouds as well and glad I found supporting material to present them along side instead of just cloud pictures. If i had done that though I would have put Joni Mitchels song about clouds in the post. Thanks again Tg.


CreekEnd UK, yes I imagine that is what it would look like coming form your dogs insides. Thanks again CE UK.


ASH ... Oh you said it first and I am so proud you said that. Your the best and I guess NG is a mother of all thing photographic. Thanks Ash!

ccdarling, Oh so nice said and felt. Thanks so much! CCD.


M. C. S. I hear you and except for a slightly sore wrist that should have been broken I am surprisingly OK. Thanks again MCS.

Addicted to the Voices, Oh that is so nice of you to say that. I hope you win the lottery now! Thanks ATTV.

Wren Dancer, Thanks so much. Yes i am so glad I am OK. Thanks WD!
OMG I was not signed in and lost all my replies.



liz.777, yes indeed losing a camera is like losing an old friend. The more images you take with it the more dear it becomes. I am so glad though That I did not break my wrist or arm as I can smashing down. The whole time which was only a few seconds I was thinking of my dear camera. thanks again L.

zanelle, Thats so interesting. Thanks for sharing it. Thanks again Z.

Fay Paxton, Yes it took several tries till I found the right music. I thank you for the fine compliment as well.FP.

Mary Stanik, Yes Green brings out the Irish in me. Not that I have any but you never know I have Scottish and English Blood lines too. Thanks again MS.


clay ball, Oh that is so nicely said. yes i guess we are like a river of time flowing along till the end. Thanks again CB.
I have never seen anything so beautiful as your green slime
the clouds seemed to be filled with joy
I am so sad about your camera and bruises
I hope you find a new one at the end of your magnificent rainbow
an Algis without a camera should never happen
rated with love
i sure hope u right about Gaia being all forgiving.
we are trying her patience, i fear.
what a line:
"the germ of creation awaits its turn in the evolutionary cycle,

relentlessly to multiply"

sorry about yr accident.
go door to door requesting funds,
showing them yer amazing portfolio.
thanks for the lovely slime.
get a camera.
as rp says, algis w/o camera is but half an algis!!
WOw, what a beautiful journey. Amazing photos. So sorry about your accident and I'm glad you aren't hurt. And sorry about your camera but--you have such an eye, you could probably use a pin hole camera and get fabulous results.
This was just amazing, Algis!!!! Thanks for sharing!! /r
Your pictures hold hands with my eyes.
The music put a new hem in my skirt.

I wave my magic wand towards you and wish you a new camera.
RomanticPoetess , OMG...the green slime is indeed one colorful aspect of first life. It is almost all gone now with things drying up rapidly here. Thanks again RP.

James M. Emmerling, I guess that is so true me with out a camera is a little bit hard to take and makes only half as good as I could ever be. Thanks again JME.


Brown Eyed Girl, Yes the pin hole camera. I like that system because it allows you to make one of a kind type image. Thanks again BEG.

MichelleD, Your so very welcome!

mhold, I like that line about the new hem. Cool. Thanks so much MH.

Tiffany Brubeck, I loved that comment too! Thx TB.
pictures of my ancestors
I'll repeat two things that others have said: these are some of your most incredible photographs yet -- and that's saying something! -- but am also sorry to hear about your fall and broken camera, but glad you're ok. A camera can be replaced; you can't be.
VariousArtists, OMG thanks so much. I guess the beginning of life is something to be marveled at. About me.I do have a very sore wrist and had it not been for the camera taking the weight of my fall I think I would have broken it or my arm. True the camera can be replaced and me...well I guess you could always have me cloned from my DNA and then that would really be the Origin of Algis all over again. Thanks again VA!
SO BEAUTIFUL WORK..HOΡΕ TO BE FRIENDS WITH YOU,MY BEST REGARDS FROM GREECE.
You certainly know how to handle a camera, and you have a very good eye for interesting photos. I loved the way you narrated your story as well. It's a shame that when all this beauty was created, pests were also created, which dig up and eat their way through your lovely garden (or my garden anyway).
