The Best Way To Predict The Future Is To Invent It

The Best Way To Predict The Future Is To Invent It
Motivational quotes
Image by Sam Ilić
This photo is a tribute to all my contacts that visit my stream regularly. A small token of appreciation and a big thank you.

I had my first FP this week, so I’ll be celebrating tonight with a glass of wine. I’ve been trying to reinvent my self through photography and having some sort of feedback is a great motivational tool.

This is a small pond in front of my house. Its a beautiful place to be in the evening when the sun sets 🙂

Have a safe weekend!

Flicker is broken! This went straight to front page as well! Thanks for your support.
