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.
I love the richness of the color in this. reminds me of chocolate
Yes; it does seem like chocolate. I’m sure this was a very colorful façade in its day, but time and weather have left it with these nice “Chocolaty” tones as you mention. The smooth curves of the sculpture even look like moulded chocolate. Thank you very much for looking and commenting John. It’s great to hear from you :-)

how i envy your travels and photo-ing way of life. you are a master with the camera!
Thank you for this great comment Stephanie :-)
I like the warm light in this, enhancing the chocolate feeling. Looks like an evening or morning shot. Beautiful work, Richard!
Thank you Eivor. Yes; it was a late evening shot with just enough light to take this without a tripod.
