A beautiful photo – yet I miss the old cameras, and I miss the black and white – maybe it’s time to reverse the process, and instead of touching up old photos, toning down the new ultra-pixilated photos of now

Heaven is indeed all around us. It takes photographers like you Mario to make us realise that. Thank you.

Funny…this mountain looks very much like another one here in southern California, at a place called “Disneyland”! (They call it “the happiest place on Earth.)
