There are so many moments in our life that we get the chance to be part of, not all of them are marvelous or sufficiently extraordinaries to keep the memories live on, but even when there are memories we do not want to remember anymore, we also have those unforgettable memories that are significant in our existence and that indeed we always want to recall. Every day, every month or every year represent a compile of

memories that touched our lives and which subsequently earn a permanent place in our memory. We are always tended to unlock the door to remains of yesterday because it is those unforgettable events which make us feel valuable, proud, unique, full of hope and joy to continue on and venture forth into a new day. There are also unforgettable places and faces implicit that leave a trace in our life and important enough to want to recall them everyday.


Dedication

This is a special gift for Julianne Wagner on her 43th birthday, she is the most amazing, supportive, loving, kind and strong woman I’ve ever shared with. She and her husband made possible this unforgettable experience I decided to venture last year. I would always carrying them in my heart, they are unforgettable as those beautiful places they helped me get to know and for which now I have memories gathered together in my mind that I never want to forget.

Julianne always believed on me, helped me cross where I was afraid to go, tried hard to encourage me to follow my passion about photography, taught me a lot of things that have been useful in my life and the most important she had ever could indirectly taught me, even when I make mistakes I could always have a second chance to fix them. This poetic book is about her and what she did for me last year, I have a lot of to thank her. All those places, people, significant events I get to see, meet and experiment have been the most amazing ones had had happened in my life and it wouldn’t had been possible without her.
