Q: Indoor Volleyball Pictures

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

as i wait for the inevitable sunrise, i can't help but to think what would it look like. intertwined in the midst of clouds and sea, the sun searches for an escape. should i captured it or keep this single tranquil moment to myself. initially, the first thought I had was to keep it to myself but why do that.
