wiki: goose bumps, also called goose flesh, goose pimples, the medical term cutis anserina, are the bumps on a person’s skin at the base of body hairs which may involuntarily develop when a person is cold or experiences strong emotions such as fear, nostalgia, pleasure, euphoria, awe, admiration and sexual arousal

The reflex of producing goose bumps is known as arasing, piloerection, or the pilomotor reflex. It occurs in many mammals besides humans. Goose bumps are created when tiny muscles at the base of each hair, known as arrector pili muscles, contract and pull the hair erect. The reflex is started by the sympathetic nervous system, which is responsible for many fight-or-flight responses

  1. If we do the literal translation from Spanish it’s chicken’s skin ;)

  2. beautiful image!

  3. The accuracy of the camera settings cracks me up. Back in the day….like, 8 years ago, with film cameras we didn’t couldn’t use decimals with aperture and focal length. I love the picture, and enjoy it even more with the wiki explanation.

    • Haha! I hate the exifs shown in my blog but I can’t remove them… it’s THE most ridiculous feature of duotone theme… considering I am an amateur with a compact camera )
      Thanx for your time and comment ;)
