it was a wonderful brisk wednesday morning. at first i thought i would just sleep in but eventually i got up and soon made my way down to the boardwalk. as i sat down on a bench the sun rose up and said good morning. to be honest, i don’t recall exactly what i was thinking at the time, i am just happy to see another morning. but what i felt was incredible. i felt the earth move under me, i felt the air rise over me, i felt like God hit the reset button and i felt the innocence within me being released.

    Suspensful, exciting narration, you could write books I think, a book with your images and stories. I like here the dark dark blue so much, it really connects to heaven and earth. Exceptionally in these monotone colours, with that bit bit of beautiful orange as the center.
