Went to a friends wedding in Sydney, as they wanted me to be their photographer and I took some shots of the glass decorations on the wedding table, which in itself were done very elegantly, but they were really boring shots. During the reception I noticed these two boys looking out the window overlooking the beach, as the reception was at a surf club, the moistness on the glass due to the chill outside added impact to what seemed to me to be a much more interesting photo.

Expect to get slammed with this one, but i love it.

Thanks for the bling Don, and all the other comments, mean more to me than a silly score.

Hope to come back with a proper comment for this great image. For now, bump to 10

Goodness, it took me a whole night to repeat over and over again the title and try to find the continuation. Yes, of course, and here it is:
1 Corinthians 13:12

12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

and of course you so marvelously continued in your image: "but when I became a man, I put away childish things".

Hard to look now at the other images since you elevated the subject so much.
A favorite
