    Puxa Patrícia que orgulho hein. Mas muito perecido mesmo porque não apenas a foto é realmente extraordinariamente bela, mas porque o extraordinariamente belo não seria registrado por “qualquer hum”.
    Fotografar é uma “Arte” e como toda Arte exige sensibilidade, estudo, persistência, paciência, inteligencia e acima de tudo DOM.
    E tudo isso você tem Patrícia Saraiva.
    Beijo
