I can definitely see why you would want to re-re-re-re-enter this one, Kara! To me, it couldn't be more perfectly executed! You all know how much I love dark & moody images...the mood doesn't have to be ominous and this images proves that. Your light and shadows rest ever so gently on this handsome man and what I feel to be his best friend. This is MY first time seeing it and am SO glad you decided to give it another go. GOOD LUCK, GIRLIE! You have my support!
HTD, my friend!
