Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything!

    Superb capture John, and love the angle used for the shot. I am hoping it was more on the love affair side of things; rather than some kind of a fight for leadership. The one in the forefront looks like a typical woman…..go ahead, show me your teeth…..think I care you don’t visit the dentist too often….Fabulous clarity, focus and presentation my friend. Susan xo

  • Susan this is such a fine compliment!!!
    I can read between the lines that you study the photo very good!
    Big thank you from your humble shy friend in Holland
    Warmly xx …
