This post is in response to A Postcard from Undina.
The writer of a photo caption, in the comments below, subjectively chosen by The Fragrant Man, will receive a Fragrant and Tasty gift of Kampot Peppercorns from Cambodia.
Gift recipient announced at April 2013 month end.
Mailed to wherever you are tonight in The Fragrant Stratosphere.
A Place of Peace
Srah Srang is a Khmer-made lake, a water reservoir in Siem Reap, Cambodia.

There is also a Fragrant Legend about this place. A tale to be told shortly on The Fragrant Man.
I was mesmerized by this incredible picture…very much looking forward to your fragrant legend!
(Don’t enter me in the contest, but I’m inspired to reply). The gorgeous moody photo makes me think of Lamartine’s “The Lake”–which has nothing to do with the photo, I know:
“May the wind that groans, the reed that sighs,
may the soft scent of your fragrant air,
may everything that is heard, seen or breathed
all say: They loved!”
And to be less wordy about it: “Oh,time! suspend your flight!”
I can feel a guest post from you coming up as written above.
Love me some Lamartine, a cornucopia of words.
Thanks for dropping by my blog. Great photo post card. Fragrance is too little appreciated and unlike photography, it is something that can’t be placed on the internet.
The www is a very appreciative place for both these modalities. But yes there are fragrant words on the net but not the scent despite the attempt this week by the Google Nose software launch on April 1. Click on, Victor.
Thank you for the beautiful postcard 🙂
Thank you for the inspiration.

My caption is a quote by Jo Walton:
“There’s a sunrise and a sunset every single day, and they’re absolutely free. Don’t miss so many of them.”
This photo was a reminder to me to take time to be inspired and moved by beauty.
Yes, we move so fast these days at the speed of email. Time for a bath.
