The initial reaction to a picture is like that of a book cover - it should draw the viewer in and create a desire to learn more. The image itself should project a story, encouraging the eye to investigate and further enhance the experience of the viewer. Yet in many cases the story goes beyond that - there are many instances where the untold story of how the image came about can add value to the result.

I have often increased my appreciation of images after discovering background stories provided by the artist, and would like to add my own in the hope that others may enjoy.
