I’ve tried to capture images (unsuccessfully) many times. The other night, I was composing an image and I was waiting for the light to even out a bit.

    My dearest Marina, yes, ’tis been a long hiatus since I left my thoughts at your lovely domain, but, today I just had to. Congrats for the post !
    Eric is truly right — you have always been a brilliant artist and a paradigm for many of us who seek inspiration from your visual treat. I remember when I used to blog at BID, I would anxiously await for your paintings — how much I have missed that part and time, but, today I am leaving my thoughts to convey my heartiest congrats for such triumphant moments.

    Continue remaining such a breath of fresh air — you, my dear, shall reach the zenith of success – this is my wish for you — both as a painter and musician ! Miss you lots. xxxxxx
    Love, Shaheen

    • I am so happy to see you, my dear Shaheen!
      You’ve managed to make me blush – once again!!!
      Your page is missed, my kind friend, your thoughts, your talent and your presence! I hope you will soon decide to unfold all your talents again here at wp [or anywhere you wish]. You are also a paradigm, my dear!
      I hope you are doing well [I am following your work].
      I have to thank Eric for one more thing: for making you break your silence! I do hope you visit his blog. You will be amazed. His heart and soul live in his photos.
      🙂 xxxxxx: many of them [write when you can]

Happy to hear your thoughts
