The candlelight represents the world around us that can easily dissipate and disappear in a breath of exhaustion exhaled by the very lungs that consume the oxygen provided to them by the world. It illustrates the importance of keeping the balance between giving and taking between humans and Earth.
I like the pink hue of the photo and the lens flare over the eye– it gives the picture a nostalgic aura.
I love the soft lighting of the candle that gently illuminates her face. The image is inviting and comforting, while still appearing mysterious.
I really love the warmth that the candle conveys throughout the room. You could really see the tranquility expressed on her face!
