Love the softness and simplicity, and I agree philosophical critic, delving deeper than composition and technical aspects, can be way more fun. So, what I like about a lot of your images is there is a peacefulness that is not a part of the modern life. An intamcy (spelling is off) with the surroundings.

Many thanks for the wonderful comments and your fav's for this photo. I am so pleased that a film photo taken with a medium format camera that is over 50 years an achieve these results and appear on PP and Top 20. My apologies in the last 2 days for not getting around to make comments. Have been exhausted and falling asleep on the couch in the evening. Plan to catch up as much as I can over weekend. Have a great Saturday and Sunday!
