  2. Hi Natali. Thank you so much for stopping by on my blog. Now I am here. I fact your photography is gorgeous! I have no reason for not to follow your amazing blog. I wil be back to you later. Cheers

  3. Do you have a flickr account? And would you mind if I ever used your photography (with appropriate caption) in my posts? I would of course also always give a link back to your site. Your photography is beautiful! Thank-you for showing interest in my blog! Blessings~

  4. Beautiful, even inspiring photography, often accompanied by a perfect quote or poem. I’ve added you to the blogs I’m following!

  5. I have a question based on my own personal concept regarding the permanence of art, albeit painting as in my case, but also photography. In my teens I also had a 35mm, a frighteningly robust Zenith. I actually really loved the whole 35mm thing with pictures being developed into tangible hard copy, and even now, some 30yrs later, I still have some of those pictures. They last. Now my idea about permanence is that real art lasts, without the need for another factor, most notably electricity. I visited a gallery in Madrid and was truly astounded by the sheer brilliance and vibrancy of the Raphael art on display, over 500 yrs after they were painted. I work in acrylic and its not known how long an acrylic painting if well cared for, will last, some estimates ranges from 300-400yrs, though the medium hasn’t been about long enough to really know. My question is this…..with photography now turning to be dominated by digital images, and including computer software to highly, do you feel your work, or any photographers work in fact, has permanence? And how do you feel now that the medium is so dependent on something like electricity and software, which if removed would undermine the medium?

    • Thanks for taking the time to write such a great comment and ask such a thought provoking question. I suppose that depending on how you look at it, there could be a lack of permanence to the medium of photography. As far as digital photography being reliant on electricity and software, I agree that that complicates matters, because if there weren’t any electricity, digital photography would not exist. The oldest digital print isn’t anywhere near as old as the oldest painting dating back some 60,000 years. We have yet to determine exactly how permanent a digital print will be.However, photography is not heavily reliant on electricity. A photograph can be produced without any electricity, simply using a camera obscura (which easily can be made at home), cloth soaked in emulsion and the key ingredient and light. Still, it would still be considered a photograph. Granted, photography is not as old as painting but it has been around and helped famous painters such as Vermeer from the 17th century. Vermeer would trace the outline of the image that the camera obscura would project on to a piece of paper or canvas. After that, the canvas would later be painted and become some of the most famous masterpieces in the world. Since I started photography, I have considered myself a painter, very much like yourself, except that you use acrylic and I use light. I also paint and draw, but most of the time, I feel photography is the medium that best describes what goes on in my brain. So to answer your question, I think there is some permanence to my work, just how much, we will find out in due time.

  7. Hi would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a difficult time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and
    Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something
    completely unique. P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

  8. Glad you like it…I am still quite “technologically retarded” so I went for the easiest way to blog, which was WordPress. I paid to have the ‘dot com’ rather than my blog @wordpress.com
    I use Bueno Theme and added the tryptich header. If I can figure it out, I’m certain you will be brilliant at it!
