“Beauty is everywhere, but sometimes we are too busy to notice it. Or at other times we are locked within the limits of a conventional point of view. Let’s break the borders, the routine and ordinary. Let’s have a fresh look around, and we will be amazed by how different and beautiful our world is"  Elena Nikolaeva
