  101. Well done on the supermoon, Jane. So sharp, briliantly shot. Luck was on your side too – a clear sky over the bridge. It sort of looks like a big round cheese in the sky, or a round vanilla frosted cake ๐Ÿ˜€ Love the collection of quotes too. Agree with the last one. Photography certainly is about moments, and so many of these moments are once in a lifetime. With each shot that we take, we are capturing a passing moment, a part of history ๐Ÿ™‚

  102. Strong words, great images! I love the one of moon and the bridge, as if the moon is playing a harp… While the one of the leaf means (to me) even if you are lonely you can hold to someone, something…
