One should never know too precisely whom one has married.

My Spotlighted Images

Punit from Somewhere in, India

Lovely capture in the evening light.
I tend to think of this capture also as a documentary image - that wierd, yet commonly seen combination of the traditional red Indian bangles with modern clothing on the newly wed brides at any possible touristy location (in or outside India) always lets us know they are on a Honeymoon!

Lovely on many levels. The color of the surf is simply drop-dead gorgeous.
I like the conversational stance of this couple, and, finally, it is all tied together with your wise quote.

Phil David Morris from Saskatoon, Canada

These people seem to be transfixed in this spot as if wondering what they did
to deserve this paradise. The water in all its liquid hues seems to be liquid gold.
The wonder of this photo makes you want to treasure every wave and ripple,
such is the intense beauty and peace.

I saw this and thought of you, your movies and such when I seen this amazing commercial:

I have NEVER seen a semi-3D commercial in HD before on a PC.

Seriously, this Japanese beer ad is like watching an adventure movie..
