The dream of flight

Crossing the boundaries of dreams
From the time we first became self-aware, surely we looked up and longed to fly.  Still, despite our technology, our sheer power, our marvellous accomplishments, we can no more fly like a tern than we can change the past.

A photo? It looks like an ink drawing. I'd be interested to see the original some time.

Thanks Zhoen.

Anne-Marie, the original photo's nothing much — it's the processing that conveys the feeling I wanted to evoke. Arguable whether it should be called a photo, but I guess that's just semantics. "Based on a photo" would be more apt.
