Ernst, A question, if I may, so that I may understand beginnings and endings and learn. Are all your photos like the bottom one to start and are the others the result of your special sauce? Thanks.

The framed photos are haunting. I am rereading The Odyssey now, and finished The Iliad some time ago. Even then, we celebrated our dead warriors but regretted that we had to do so. Thank you.

Excellent, somber series. The first is another wonderful composition built around hands. Very impactful.

There's a story in the first that makes me both honored and sad in it's beauty! S-
