    Probably one of the most viewed pictures ever, as well as the most repeatedly view pictures if you didn't change the default background.

    “Photography is a complex and fluid medium, and its many factors are not applied in simple sequence. Rather, the process may be likened to the art of the juggler in keeping many balls in the air at one time!”
