I adore taking photos and this page is mostly about my traditional photography showing the beauty of nature and natural abstracts. I have recently started to list some photos altered in Photoshop but if you would like to see more of my experimental photography, photography with added texture and paintings please visit my other page here

    Very beautiful Pauline, lovely on the black background!

  • Thank you so much swaby for your lovely comment! I have chatted to you from my main art page – I finally found out officially from Red Bubble that it was allowed to have 2 pages, one for art and one for photography so I set this one up but I am still posting some pics on my other page.
