Daily Deviation

Given 2010-12-24
Die Scherenschleiferin by *chrigi76 has it all: a dramatic landscape that contrasts with the modern city in the back, calm lighting and a great composition as well as a protagonist you do not see every day. ( Suggested by carpenoctem410 and Featured by kuschelirmel )

*An apocalyptic view of a path we rather not follow.
*Such great insight is rendered through the eyes of the arts.
*It inspires great writing, poetry, and profound despair.
*BRAVO!!!

In my humble opinion, a great title for the work would be "Lost"...
