  • i hate to be a duck in that weather.. :) happy new year, man! :D

  • wow – this one is really special. to me it feels very modern japanese – maybe it’s the cranes – and the soft tones. it reminds me of the lithography work of a japanese-canadian man – sorry his name escapes me. but i love this one.

  • they do make for excellent panning subjects.. :) nice shot man! :)
