The pond my fav!!! Sasha vukelja December 30, 2016 Reply Wow great photography ! I am always so amaze that we see same things is such a different ways .Capturing the beauty that someone else has not even noticed is interesting ,but then our eye opens and then we see the unseen! Yet still different but more reveling. The power of focus of our eye and our mind is unlimited yet biase by our life experiences. We are so different yet so similar in the end .
