A Farewell to a Friend A Farewell to a FriendA Farewell to a Friend by AMSnowOfficial
Written by Adam M. Snow
Today's the day I wish it not to come.
Such this, a farewell I wish not to say.
But such a day thus day of glum,
that you depart and go your way.
But of this day such a day you leave me,
alone this night, this night I wept.
But such a day, a day we knew would be;

many years have come and gone.
The day we met as fate intends,

Just browse through this dark firmament with your eyes, and you can feel like being where the multitude of stars seems to draw archipelagos and where distant birds are sailing on the last rays of sunset.
As our group name suggests we believe that photographs have a poetry all their own. In poetry the aesthetic and evocative power of language adds to the bare meaning of words. Likewise, photos have an expressive power beyond mere objective depiction.
It is our goal to gather the best photos out that evoke such a distinguished emotional and aesthetic response in the viewer and tell us a story all their own.
