  1. These images are excellent. The use of the audio tracks are so effective. More people should see & hear this post. I am going to send a link let non-blogging family & friends . I do not re-blog, but I will do a post directing others here. Great work. 🙂

  2. Hi, elmediat (Joseph, whom I mentioned above) led me here from a post on his site, and I am so glad he did. This post is absolutely stunning. The photographs themselves take my breath away, but the images combined with the sound tracks makes for a brilliant combination. Thank you so much! I am sure to return to this post to experience it again!
