A favorite for me John. I absolutely love this look and it is a look that you have been mastering and I find them to be framed and enjoyed. Love the black and white, hows is simple yet has that beauty that makes one stay and take it in. It also has a mood as if in a dream and I love that. A gorgeous work of art John. #1703900
