It is the title of an american movie, but not only.
Its name in french is "La mort en sursis" which fits even better to the story I shall tell you now.
When I moved here after buying my new house, I met the neighbours to make acquaintance. The closest to me were a man and his wife about 70 yo very warm-hearted.She was suffering of something like asthma but I talked with one or the other every time we saw us from the garden
A few month later , in the morning, I heard the sound of an ambulance.
My neighbour said me that his wife had been led to the hospital.
Each day he went to the hospital,and I took news each day. Five or six days later, he told me that she was far better.I was happy to know this when he added "yes but she is afraid with the eighth day" ,I had never heard of a "eighth day" before, and I tried to convince him that it was no more than superstition.I think he did not share my opinion.Why ? I don't know.Was it something told in that country for centuries? I have no idea.
What I remember is, that on Sunday , early in the morning he phoned me and just said "My wife has died"
I stayed without voice.
It was the eighth day.

I wanted to tell this story , looking at the perfume called "the eighth day" in the bathroom, while, near it, was standing a grecian chariot I would interpret here as the chariot of death, the reason for desaturation.
I would dedicate this picture to Doctors who give their best in hospitals to save life, and who however sometimes can do nothing against death.
I think also to those in these Christmas and festivity times who will wait alone in a bed of an hospital.

" 8e jour" (the eighth day) is a perfume for young women by Yves Rocher, France

Bonjour Henri, a very interesting note;I had never heard of 'The eighth day' before.
An evocative image, well composed and considered.
The desaturation was an excellent choice.
Very good sharp focus.
Regards Jean.

Artistic and eloquent!Beautiful post,Friendly regards Otto.

Salut Henri,

Il y a tout plein de titre dans ton image. Toi du dit la mort en sursis, mais le 8ieme jour c'est aussi un film


Quand même une belle image bien travaillée, bravo


salut Henri,
j'aime le parfum et le publicité de grand marque......à pars de vendre leur produit,
à mon avis esthétiquement est un + pour l’esprit...
c'est une photo cubiste :-)
cadre dans le cadre qui est dans le cadre et ainsi de suit.....renforcé par la statuette .
ps: je travail dans un hôpital ou on viens pour mourir.
ça m'a personnellement touché ton histoire que c'est mon quotidienne .
contrairement ceux qu'on pense, on est pas tout seul dans notre lit de hôpital
vive là vie même dans 8em jours

Bom dia Henri,
Une très bien faite et belle contribution à ce sujet que agite nos souvenirs.
La petite histoire que tu racontes est bien compatible avec les mystères d'Eleusis :O}.

Hi Henri, A very touching story interpreted by a bottle of perfume called 'the eighth day'. Death is not fearful only the waiting is scary. Very nice colours with great composition. Thank for sharing and Merry Christmas
