I did intend not to caption this series to illusion and reality, even though it might fit the image more… in certain ways?! Yet, in Buddhism’s point of view, everything is Maya (illusion).

Try to get the best out of it is pretty good enough, I think. This image without perfect light seems much more attractive to me.
