Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams. -Ashley Smith +++ The original shot was color, but I liked both b/w and color… after this post, I’ll share the color version on Bohemian’s eye Facebook page.
