Today I introduce my new friend Nole, or Noily for short. I met him while visiting the land of Obe, (The oily, watery place where I take all these wonderful photographs).

Noily became a bit jittery when he spotted a lone eye spying on him from below. I assured him that everything was all right since eye’s have a way of roaming on Orf. It’s just their nature. He grew quite attached to me after I abated his fears, but I think he’ll grow out of it. You know how kids are – especially the bouncy squirmy kind.

FEATURED in Olympus and 4/3ds Group October 2010

Abstract macro photography created with Oil, Water and Dye.
Olympus E-3, 35 mm, 1/15 Sec, f/5.6, ISO 100


abstract, curves, dye, eyes, oil water, sphere, macro, close up

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.

    Soooooo good night Nole…
    highly conspiuous you seem to be,
    but I know…inoffensive and enthusiastic.
    I can feel that you are moving fast….of course in the usual terms of fast…or slow..that is under certain conditions…and been worrying about your lack of arms or legs…hummmmmmm quite are then….good…precious “ameba like” being…essential and have a great “father”..I bet.

  • Nole is most appreciative of your kind comments Rosa. He said he thinks you’re a nice person and any friend of mine is a friend of his :-)

    Mil gracias por tu atención Rosa. Un abrazote!

    looks like a good buddy. is he house trained. great abstract work. that red is amazing

  • He’s not house trained. If he gets out of his tray he leaves everything slimy and covered in goo. And of course, asking him to clean up after himself is a big mistake.
    Thanks for the great comments John.
