Jon-Michael Basile September 30, 2005

This shot is not your average shot. It took a lot of thought but to be honest it had to do with my emotions. It took several different days for me to make the shot work. The reason for it's beauty was not just the perfect weather and timing but also my psychological state. I knew what was happening when I took this shot and I wanted to capture all of it. It's not a simple shot like many great photos. but then life isn't that simple and beauty can be complicated. Thank you every one for seeing.
Best Wishes,
Jon-Michael Basile #1901667
