That's All for You :)


"The moment always dictates in my work. What I feel, I do. This is the most important thing for me. Everybody can look, but they don't necessarily see. I never calculate or consider; I see a situation and I know that it's right, even if I have to go back to get the proper lighting."
~ Andre Kertesz

SOUL AFLAME from The bosom of Mother Nature, United Kingdom

Aha. now I know where you are, Mariana. The Liquor Control Board of Ontario, so that's where Waterloo is. As soon as I saw that, I knew. That's many miles away from my family in Sidney, in fact over 3,800km so I guess I won't be able to drop by and say hello when we are ther in April...ha ha.

Have a wonderful Christmas, and my best wishes to you and your family

24 Dec 2009 4:51pm

@SOUL AFLAME: If you continue posting pictures from Sidney, I might fall in love with these places and get a wish to visit it ..SO I can see you there ... Just wishing to learn and see more of our huge and beautiful country, but never have time or enough money for that :))
