The person in the photos is stunning!!! Such a beautiful composition, and so evocative of all the emotions.
This is very cool.
Wooow, these are so gorgeous.
Wow. Just wow.
So beautiful! I’m pretty much speechless.
This was really beautiful.
Ooh, I like this a lot.
That collarless white shirt and that grey hair and that best haircut possible … *hearteyetis* (this is a severe condition in which heartsineyesemoji becomes semipermanent, you bump into walls and make out with strangers and weep at everyday objects)
This is stunning.
