This one is at the end of her journey…. She began is a little snoopy whoopy… she grew and had her days of endless beauty but right now… she doesn’t make it much longer… sorry… I’ll just give her time… time to say goodbye!

Bob is especially interested in ‘the soul’ of the things without one, the expressiveness of the lifeless, the essence of material….. macro photography, ‘things’ in particular.
‘Things’ don’t have the tendency to walk away, to fly, to move, to have a meaning, are always present and do not complex, have patience, don’t nag etc. etc….. As Bob wrote in his profile… “I like it simple!”…
