I take pictures of flowers in the evening after the sunset with a flash light.
The color of the sky turns to indigo blue through a camera and flowers get vivid and show us the strength of plants.
The pictures remind us of the old home of creatures who were born in the sea long time ago.
We have the memory of the birth of creatures in our heart since we are grown up in the sea in mother's tummy.
I hope you can enjoy the fantasy from my pictures.
