My focus as a photographer and digital artist ranges from traditional photography to PhotoArt compilation and the less explored world of abstract design created with natural elements such as smoke, oil and water.

    My God….what a succulency!
    I would licke it all along the curved petals..
    feeling the world coming into mouth…
    We are always relating warmth to sensuality,
    but freshness is very sensual as well..
    and the subtle odour of dew and flower is next fo God.
    Rosa (it is a world of intensity and beauty Richard..)

  • Thank you so much for your poetic insight Rosa … es muy estimulante.
