Rolan- That is one trip I would love to have been with you on as anything that has to do with museum's is a special thrill for me. I have been fasinated with museum's from way back in my childhood.
I love the surreal look and for me the owl is special as we think of the wise old owl playig chess. I also enjoy the elegant look and classic vision.
Your photo work has brought it justice with incredible camera work.
Stunning. #6976243

Hi Lolana!

It's Lala! I am using Laura's e-mail.

Stefania has left you an answer on Laura's tree reflection picture.

Your name is Rolan right? So it is Lolana in the language I am using.

Have a wonderful sunny day.
