I remember it was my middle school age, say, end of 80's last century, that I found a grogeous and overwhelming picture from a foreign magazine, which was rare sources at that time, in my father's office. That unbelievable shot impressed me so much that the awesome agitative orange tone still keep flashing into my mind from time to time, influencing my design style and preference of color scheme.
This year, 2010, is not quite a peaceful year, from the very beginning, our mother planet became more and more disturbed, is that a indication of 2012? Hell knows!
Anyway, my friends stocked in Europe, good luck, hope you all back to home safely.
