Enrique Aviles shared Enrique Avilés’s photo.
Tried the 11mm for portraiture today. It seems like I photographed Leonard Cohen without recognizing him. If so… A pity that I didn’t get to say how much I love his music.
Kindly shared by Enrique Aviles on Facebook.

Message written by Leonard Cohen at Museo Casa Natal FGL, the birthplace of Federico García Lorca in Granada. I’m especially taken by the arrow through the two hearts with the initials of Federico García Lorca and Leonard Norman Cohen. ❤ At his summer house you can also see a small painting by Dali.

…He stands where it is steep,
I guess he thinks that he’s the very first one,
his hands upon his leather belt now
like it was the wheel of some big ocean liner.
And she will learn to touch herself so well
as all the sails burn down like paper.
And he has lit the chain
of his famous cigarillo.
Ah, they’ll never ever reach the moon,
at least not the one that we’re after;
it’s floating broken on the open sea,
and it carries no survivors.
But let’s leave these lovers wondering
why they cannot have each other,
and let’s sing another song, boys,
this one has grown old and bitter.
From “Sing Another Song, Boys,” a song by Leonard Cohen from his album Songs Of Love And Hate.

I wonder how many people in this city
live in furnished rooms.
Late at night when I look out at the buildings
I swear I see a face in every window
looking back at me,
and when I turn away
I wonder how many go back to their desks
and write this down.
"I Wonder How Many People in this City," a poem by Leonard Cohen from his book The Spice-Box of Earth.

As promised at Reno Artown, my LC scrapbook:
Perla Batalla, Leonard’s friend and former backing singer from the 1988-1993 tours, shares her photo album of life with Leonard.
I saw you this morning.
You were moving so fast.
Can’t seem to loosen my grip
On the past.
And I miss you so much.
There’s no one in sight.
And we’re still making love
In My Secret Life.
I smile when I’m angry.
From “In My Secret Life,” a song by Leonard Cohen written with Sharon Robinson from the album Ten New Songs.
I cheat and I lie.
I do what I have to do
To get by.
But I know what is wrong.
And I know what is right.
And I’d die for the truth
In My Secret Life…
