How mesmerizing is that frozen statue photograph? Somehow it captures so many emotions while projecting total and utter calmness.

Funny thing, this morning when I showed this photo to Balazs he said that it totally reminded him of the Wooly Willy board. Do you remember it? He said that he had one as a kiddo and he loved creating dozens of different faces from the magnetic powder (or magical dust as he said) using the awesome wand. It must be the ice-spikes that reminded him of it. Sweet! xo

P.S: Reflections beyond the shadows.

I've never heard of Wooly Willy but it sounds fun. Who wouldn't want to play with magical dust?
I know one thing for sure, that photo wasn't taken here in Phoenix :)
