  7. i can't imagine the world you live in. neither what you see, nor how you look at it (beyond what images tell - for i become so much a part of them that i cannot draw distinctions anymore).
    surely, this Eden only exists because you want it to be? or no?
    i dream of seeing you see.

  9. Can you imagine that the garden of Eden could of been full of tropical flowers and orchids. Your photos are amazing, I know I say it over and over again, but you are quite a professional artist.

  10. They are smooth and beautiful like the Jaguar. I would like to smooth the textures with my fingers. These photos fill my eyes and tantilize the senses. Wonderful wonderful.

    And I love your photo of your little pal. What a darling she is! She seems to sense and mirror your photography themes.

  12. Your photos made me g.a.s.p!! Stunning! And the angles? I don't think I've seen a bunch of bananas photographed like that! Even the patterns on the custard apple and the "starfish" seem to say...take a good look at us now! Beautiful! What's that in the 8th photo?
