Photography is not about cameras, gadgets and gizmos. Photography is about photographers. A camera didn’t make a great picture any more than a typewriter wrote a great novel.

    this dude is deeppppppppppppp in thought………hum wonder what he is thinking…? such boldness……… his appearance……….almost like he is not breathing….such stillness and like a statue he sits there……..bravo………MORE————→
