With this conceptual still life photography I took a break from my usual melancholic mood and added a new work to my surreal portfolio.

Shot with my Pentax K10D and trusty Pentax-A 1:1.7 50mm objective, using my very own painting with light technique, you can read more about the technique in this tutorial

  • Many thanks Kira, for your continuing support, even if my work appears with huge gaps of time between them.

    Your veins smell like the tree-life´s sap.
    No blood under the rose´s thorn.
    I step…dancing my lullaby.
    Rosa (I love dummies…and this is not exception)
