The Magic of the Cities.

Zen promotes the rediscovery of the obvious, which is so often lost in its familiarity and simplicity. It sees the miraculous in the common and magic in our everyday surroundings. When we are not rushed, and our minds are unclouded by conceptualizations, a veil will sometimes drop, introducing the viewer to a world unseen since childhood. ~ John Greer

SO beautiful. I adore the second image with the lone girl walking up the hill. Do you mind if I ask what editing program you use, Photoshop? I really enjoy your technique.

I just had to let you know that I've enjoyed your music so much that I shrunk your window and let it play while I worked on other things. Especially liked the live version of
U2!
