Lev Tsimring has a special ability to capture a moment in time.  What others may often overlook, Lev's thoughtful eye captures in his photography.  This image was taken on a train in Japan and is strikingly beautiful.  Such a simple scene, yet pure and full of beauty.  It looks like a painting with the striking composition and Lev's masterful use of light and color.  On exhibit through March 11.
