79 - Belief



Canon 5DmkII, 70-200mm at 125mm, iso100, 1/4 sec at f/11.0, +12 ext tube

I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge -- myth is more potent than history -- dreams are more powerful than facts -- hope always triumphs over experience -- laughter is the cure for grief -- love is stronger than death

This image is inspired by the wonderful work of Diane Varner please visit her amazing photography at Daily Walks

Mike, you leave me speechless. Your image is absolutely gorgeous, your words are incredibly inspiring and your gesture of kindness appreciated more than you'll ever know. Thank you.

PS: It's not too often that I'm envious of an image but this is one of them... I wish I had taken this :-)

The center of this flower is amazing looking one could get lost in it.

I love the "treatment" (i.e. the post processing). It really conveys a deep mood. I like the focus on the core of the flower - it sucks your eye in visually like a black hole. Now I need a spatula to get my face off the screen :-))

I like to see the old time photo feel that this photo portrays it has a more peaceful feel to it
