"You’re beautiful, but you’re empty…One couldn’t die for you. Of course, an ordinary passerby would think my rose looked just like you. But my rose, all on her own, is more important than all of you together, since she’s the one I’ve watered. Since she’s the one I put under glass, since she’s the one I sheltered behind the screen. Since she’s the one for whom I killed the caterpillars (except the two or three butterflies). Since she’s the one I listened to when she complained, or when she boasted, or even sometimes when she said nothing at all. Since she’s my rose"
-Antoine de Saint-Exupéry The Little Prince

Can you tell that I like this book?

Have I mentioned that Pete is the most lovely, fantastic, magical person ever? Because he is. Truly. Even though you all probably already knew that.

Hello, hello. :) 
My name is Andrea, and I’m an amateur photographer and photography student who watches the world and falls in love through her camera lens. I think photography is an incredibly valuable thing. In the book The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, the little prince talks with a cartographer, who tells him that his rose wouldn’t appear on a map because it is ephemeral. In other words, it isn’t eternal or long-lasting. Hearing this devastates the little prince, because for him, his rose is the most important, note-worthy thing on his planet.  Things and moments that are ephemeral and fleeting sometimes leave long-lasting impressions behind, and these are often the things we hold closest to our hearts . Photography allows us to capture these moments that would otherwise have disappeared in an instant, or else create emotion evoking moments, and share them with each other. It’s an intimate way of showing our emotions and perspective, especially for those of us that are less than well-spoken. Our photos speak for us.  I’m so beyond thrilled to be a new member of PWS, and to have this opportunity to help share the incredible, ephemeral moments that others have captured and made eternal through their photography.
