Q: It seems that there is a very narrow selection of images in VS. Why

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

forged copper cross/victorian amethyst beads/tiffany bowl....

shot with one part of a two part macro filter set.



I was raised as an atheist, to believe we live once and only once.

I believe firmly in matter over mind (science vs. theory)

but many people very close to me have died, so I pray everyday I'm wrong.....

in loving memory of my mother, brother, and son.

    My son Tim made a cross for me like the one above. He made it out of silver and wrote Dad on it. It is one of my most precious possessions.
