"The moment always dictates in my work. What I feel, I do. This is the most important thing for me. Everybody can look, but they don't necessarily see. I never calculate or consider; I see a situation and I know that it's right, even if I have to go back to get the proper lighting."

Ice-cream-like super colors ! i don't know why but this image made me laugh when i opened your page ;) Maybe the shapes, funny heart faces opening in a very original way. I like the focus & super dof, we can almost touch this pinkish trio !

Mariana, usually we all have one heart, depending on each of us heart is more or less big, but you, in your greatness need three hearts; in only one there is no more all the thing you have inside and you're showing us every day. Thanks.

Mark Johnson from Rural Colorado, United States

Great image; I like the background too. I never had much luck growing these - moves from winter to summer too fast I guess. Did you know these have an alternate name "naked lady in a bathtub" - pluck a flower and turn upside-down, take hold of the two "handles" on either side of the two lower petals, and gently pull apart to form a bathtub and see why it also has that name!

3 May 2010 2:58pm

@Mark Johnson: he he .. that is so cool .. need to go back to this window where shoted them to analyze all these details you wrote here ;))

NaDu from Köln, Germany
