This, Marilyn, is not only a beauty! it is a really fondness! I hope that the expression says what I want to say.

It is very, very nice.

You said it just fine, Luis. And thanks for your kind comments.

Mailyn, I like the diagonal brown lines of the trunk and the little green twigs in the spotlight and the background in the shadow, which brings the "new life" to the center and up to the light.

But what is even more, is the symbolic expression of the picture, the urge to live, to survive, never to lose hope in whatever condition things are. Thank you for this double gift! May

Belated thanks, Sandro.

And special thanks, May, for appreciating why I was so attracted to this scene, for both its visual and its symbolic aspects.

Good job, Marilyn :-)

Thanks, Rafal. The same new life at work, yet our photos are so different, too. Regards, Marilyn
