sometimes

TJR_4331
When I'm browsing Thomas' flickr page I see images like this and wonder how a single picture can capture a distinct feeling or a distant memory and probably be different for everyone who sees it.

When I look at this I hear an old song,
I think of a few novels I read as a child,
I want to wear dress-up clothes,
and get my dearest friends together,
the easy to be around, truest, bluest,
and have wide-eyed, messy haired adventures and
explore.

Art is a powerful and personal thing.

I saw that one!!! while browsing. Looks like a scene from an enchanted story where they transfer into some magical place (like lion/witch/wardrobe).
at least that's how I see it.
either way. It's awesome.

You had better believe that this photo makes me think of all kinds of Lord of the Rings nerdy things.

Absolutely brilliant.
