Posted in The Photography

How thirsty we are for a touch of the pure spiritual being.  The more urban the environment, the greater the need.  How many millions crammed themselves into Central Park that day to “see” the Dalai lama?  Or was it to see Richard Gere?  Or was it just to be there? If you study the picture, […]
