Yasmine Rafii carries her camera most places and shoots all of the time. Some images become raw material for compositing, some are simple documents, most are deleted and a very few move forward into final processing. Each of Yasmine's deceptively simple, contemplative compositions are the result of many hours of shooting and searching out the right location at the right time. She says of this scene, "When I came upon this scene, it brought to mind the quiet of meditation. Blue permeates the air and the light, creating an aura of tranquility. The simplicity of the composition accentuates the peaceful moment and a sense of well being."
