Seeking warmth

I sit here trying to stay warm on a very chilly January day and thinking of warmer times.
On a July family weekend at Fundy National Park, Isabelle and I sat among patch of ferns near McLaren Pond in the sun letting it warm our open hands. We did this in hopes that the warmth of our sun baked palms would attract the dragonflies flying around us.
After a few minutes with our hands open and my camera at the ready, we were rewarded for our patience. A couple landed on Isabelle's arm and this one landed on my palm.

Stunning website

Singapore based designer Johnathan Yuen's portfolio site is jaw-dropping. He believes it is an honest and worthy cause "To touch someone's heart with design."

This site is beautiful, complex, simple, playful and clever. What more can I say, it's well worth the visit.

one tip: hover over the red plus signs and click on the red triangles.
