Tremendous detail work in Tempting Fate by ~Nimbus2005, to be sure... none so gripping though as the splendid articulation of the fingers, their relaxed state, the power they possess in this dangerous game, just how treacherously the loop is dangling, veritably on the precipice of two fingernails... thus completing the powerful suspense. Please enjoy a closer look. ( Suggested by gjoa and Featured by snowmask )

At first sight, I thought was an image tells an old Chinese phrase "Cry for the moon". Allude sometimes people try so hard to get sth not real, like the moon shadow in the water. Beautiful but not reachable. Nice image, very Chinese anyway. I like.

Is this supposed to mean that the world is on the edge of the abyss? Because it sure is.
