Here is a DD i suggested
This human figure enveloped by this surrounding dark matter creates a captivating visual that depicts the concept of birth unmistakably. Suggester's words: "When I go through my favourites this always jumps at me. It is so quiet and beautiful. It is like a painting. I was very surprised the first time I saw it when I found that it was digital art."

Strange times we live in

Journal Entry: Wed Oct 22, 2008, 3:06 PM




The world is changing. Hard times ahead. Time to take better care of each other. Hug our family and friends and be strong.

We sure feel it here in Iceland. Past weeks have been hard. Hearing bad things about my beautiful country that Im so proud of. Im so proud to be icelantic, but now it seems few people that were so greedy have almost destroyed all the work we have done building this good reputation we have.

If you dont understand what Im talking about it is this financial crisis that is now coming up all over the world.

But life goes on and I hope soon all will be fixed and then we have a white page to draw a new and better picture.

So Im featuring photos from my collection of Photography I like.
And I am featuring the pictures that feel soft and white.

ENJOY
