The world looks absolutely different when you watch it through your eyelashes… the hard edges are gone and everything looks soft and smooth…
I like to escape to that world every now and then….
But this one is just harsh reality… we grow older and are no longer smooth and tight… and every now and then you just got to face the truth…

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!”…
