Amona Savira

I am shocked and saddened indeed to learn that Amona Savira has died. She was a wonderful photographer who took some of the finest and most original images of this sim, which I post here as a tribute. I knew her only through these pictures, and the generous comments she always made on the work of others. May she rest in peace.
