Description: ..if I'd only seen through the silky veils of ardour, what a killing crime this love can be, I would have locked up my heart...in a golden sheath of armour. And kept its crazy beating under strictest secrecy. High security. (Joni Mitchell)

I can see that Joni Mitchell has come a vision for you...you are right to use her words..she is unique. As you are...I do not know but you turn what you see into a jewell...this is old..golden,made out of luxury and freshness...you seem to peep into the animals, in order of not disturb their quiet beings. And that half veiled light, but extremely clear that you use for the photoprocessing is a miracle. This is precious, Rosie...Rosa
Dear rosa- I saw this last week but was too busy to thank-you then...as always, I hold such gratitude in my heart for your amazing presence xxxxxxxxx
