ruskin peacock tailJohn Ruskin  (1819 – 1900)

      And I just got lost a little, when I meant just to glance at yours –in the crows and the sunflowers, and the camera’s close observation;
      the dailiness of the world—as lived by so many more lives than just the human ones which have taken over and deformed it for everyone.

      • yes this is very sad…BEAUTIFUL DAY….SINCERELY ANDREA:))
