Travel Theme: Delicate

When I think of “delicate,” what comes to mind is something that needs to be handled with care, something that is fragile and vulnerable, something precious that could easily and quickly fall apart. People, plants, animals, topics, questions, and relationships can all be delicate at times.
This little girl wanted to leave a tip for a street juggler and ever so delicately dropped a few coins in the bucket.

Frost on tall grasses sparkles in the morning sun like delicate diamonds:

    These shots are all wonderful and all fit the theme very well, but that little girl leaving the tip in the can is priceless – it pours emotion and really tells a story. Nicely done!
