I have some narrow views. I am young enough, dumb enough, humbled enough to know this. I am growing up.



It has been done before
fears to hands
friends to fans
hand to mouth
and nothing else

feet on water
grins and shouts
windows to windows
north to south

Strong, in-focus, precise images and the picture adds an appropriate dimension. And by the way, welcome to the my relatively advanced age I, too, am growing up.

As long as you leave room for growth, otherwise one grows stale ....

Be always safe,
