I've always had a fascination with our world below the breaking waves. To me, it symbolizes the world that we live in today, the calm before every storm, the beauty, and the chaos.

Aerial vision Life

Our beautiful earth is lovely to see.
Trees grow high as high as the sky.
Birds sing in the sky to tell the good earth why,

That are playing right now on our beautiful earth's floor.
