We advance from a creative passion "- (Edgar Morin)

- "To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at
that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."

I think this is absolutely enchanting and magical. I love the light, depth, and your perfect composition. It's justjso alive. I appreciate the thin border of color that well captures and subtlety enhances the whole image. 5 buds for you buddy.
