- " We do not move forward from a middle opinion, which is undemocratic but mediocratic.
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."

Its heart is glowing like a little sun. And it's not easy to capture such vivid blue. Bravo !

@Lulette: Thank you very much, Lul ette :-) I certainly had to make some adjustments to bring this little flower out but our daughter, Amy, (in the U.S. State of Vermont), has some really nice flowers around her house :-)
