Porto di Rimini 2014

The real thinker cheers and cheers always, whether he expresses his seriousness or his joke, his human perception or his divine forbearance; without gloomy attitudes, trembling hands, watery eyes, but surely and simply, with courage and vigor, perhaps with a certain make of chivalry and hard, in every case, however, as the winner; and just what soothes more deeply and intimately: see the winner god beside all the monsters that he has fought.

Friedrich Nietzsche

THANKS TO : Amy Jo Schuster

    With so many talented members on JPG you can always find great photography.
    This site is something I've enjoyed since Nov 2007.
    I've been so fortunate to exchange photos and comments from many awesome,skilled and very talented artists here.

    Not only have I learned from my fellow members I've been inspired and challenged to step up and improve my own range and skill.
    With so much outstanding work to view on these pages I always find it difficult to chose a favorite photograph.
    Just when I think I've seen the best this site has to offer a photograph such as this comes along.

    With so much talent,ability,skill and original creative work from so many members it's still rare to see absolute prefection on any page.
    And while it's just my own opinion I believe that's exactly what I'm seeing in this outstanding well captured,composed image !!
