"Liquid Silver"...


Water has many textures. This waterfall exudes an interesting fresh quality and texture, almost metallic.

"Porsche Design"...


The design of these exotic, sports cars is often far ahead of its time, even if you trace them back to the 70's and 80's.

"Blue Cosmos"...


If you slow down, nature may just surprise you with beauty in the smallest of worlds. This small plant, mostly underwater, looks as if it were it's own underwater nebula. It appears to be surrounded by sticks, which are actually reflections of branches above the water from surrounding trees. Nature surrounds us with beauty, if we just stop and look with open eyes.
I challenge you to look at this photograph from across the room. The different perspectives are very interesting. Hope you enjoy.
