Life Skills by Paul Vanzella

This image is about how one sees themselves… Strong and fearless or vulnerable and beaten.

Huge thank you to Alf Caruana for his willingness and superb eye behind the camera, a true honour to work with.

    The light that highlights the edges of your body is exquisite here! And you’re a lefty! Or at least left eyed…..beautiful work!!

    nothing is ever straightforward, that’s why I love what you do

    why is your back dirty,
    what is that I can almost see through the grass behind the fence
    who are you shooting at
    are you cupid
    are you the hunter
    or are you contemplating murder

    I will probably never know

    what I do know is you have my head whirring again

    Wonderful Paul

    and Alf, And Danielle

    Bravo all of you

    Love ‘N’ Laughter Kriss
