On this photo I do not see any beautiful girl, no magic pipe, but I see the devil's finger, which cries out for all the mountains: 'Do not come close to me, I can fall and crush you - admire from afar! "

All the best from Russia

Je ne sais pas s'il s'agit d'une des demoiselles de la "Salle de bal" de Théus, parceque un grimpeur téméraire est allé y poser un cairn de trois pierres superposées. Il faut avoir de l'estomac ! (Vu la semaine dernière)

Hello, dear Genevieve!

One stone keeps the other, and together they complement each other.

This is known as "grinding" of the characters.

It is worth to fall one stone into the abyss and the second stone will fly behind first! :)

Excellent composition!

Like&YS☆, best greetings from Russia, Alexey.
