This is gorgeous. I do have a technical (Photoshop-y question, from a photographer, to a digital artist!) question for you! How do you achieve the faded, semi-black and white look like you have going on here? I would love to know!
Sometimes, when your mind is set up to what you're used to see and you learn to know what you like, you come into the understanding and belief of what you think is meant to be for your enjoyment only. But then, something different can appear in front of you, something rare and exotic that you are not sure if you have seen before, strange enough to scare you and attract you at the same time. I feel the same way I would feel if I were to see an ineffable beauty appearing from nowhere in front of any of my glances, shocked and amazed at the same time. And these both are the feelings you receive when looking back at your life time moments you associate with what will mark the rest of your time alive; the same association you can grant to a truly master piece. This is an overwhelming picture that my eyes thank you for doing. You have inspired me.
Stay with my gratitude, I'll give you all of it today.
