Q: I am really into my wildlife photography but cannot afford a super zoom lens, I have a 300mm and am considering a teleconvertor. Has anybody had a experience with these and would you recommend them?

A: Do you know?

lucky and unluckily for me i drew k. pasa? luck, cause her photography is simply amazing. unlucky, cause her photography is... simply amazing and i cringed to think how i could validate the beautiful song she chose death cabs i will follow you into the dark.

and, how beautiful is this. this is how k. pasa? described the lyrics. it reminds her of
" the epitome of how love feels with all its painful, beautiful, wild, and elusive discoveries... the beginnings of many scars and many wonderful adventures... "

seriously? how good is that!

...the rest we'll keep between us.

medium format grubby double exposure.

    my new favourite of yours (well, on a par with 'act 2 scene 2'). it gives me a feeling of eternity too. the stairs appearing on her body from the double is just genius, and this is what gives this feeling of hope, and perfectly describe this line "i'll follow you into the dark". a beautiful metaphor for love and the infinity it can be. Your shot amazingly fits the song but also k.pasa's words, the beginning of a new adventure.. look at her, walking straight into this land of discoveries.. just perfect... i could talk about this shot during hours or write an essay about it but i'll stop there... this is fabulous petey, a masterpiece.
