Thanks to Friends

In all shapes and sizes, the new ones for going along  with my world, old ones for carrying me over with encouraging words and pulling my feet back to the ground when needed, the ones who have always criticized me and have pushed me to be better. The ones who will answer to my questions over and over again.
To the ones who share my madness and enjoy it as much as I do (that goes to the person who trespassed with me old abandoned trains just to help me). And to all of those who are yet to come to my life.

Uniqueness+ a Happy B-Day to me...

"So dreamy, freaky and sensual, they convey a lot of emotions!!!" This was the comment I got from the first photographer who saw these 2 images below.I felt compelled after that comment to submit them for a Toy Camera Competition, and guess what? I got selected. So I will be in a group Exhibit at the Rayko Gallery in San Francisco, California, from March 4th- May 1st.
These two images are unique, feminine, messy,"dreamy,freaky and sensual" goodness I am exhausted with all these adjectives!!!
 I am thrilled all the way!!!! and BTW, I got the announcement last Thursday, when my Birthday was about to expire. Couldn't ask for anything more that day. It was a fantastic time and I feel very happy,happy, joy, joy!!!

Best X-mas Gift Ever - For me at least...

I know I have been away for some time now, the holidays, the parties, the processing, the updating, the new ventures and so on keep me going, and this blog has fell on the cracks of what is called life.
I hope that you all had a great X-mas and a wonderful New Year. To recap our Christmas certainly had an amazing spiritual beginning and we hope it lingers into the new year.
And what was truly magnificent, fantastic, out of this world,  super duper wonderful, was a gift I was given by MC (Husband) It was not the most expensive, neither the flashiest of things,but I love it, He sees within me, this present hit right on the core of my taste in photography. I was given the limited edition only published book with work by Francesca Woodman.
This book is marvelous, it depicts most of the published work by Woodman, with all inclusive Journal entries, and letters by her father and best friend. The printing is superb, and the work is just out of this world!!! I am just baffled by the amazing talent this child had, she was a shooting star, it is such a shame she went away so quickly!!! I am enjoying it like a bottle of a very good expensive wine, little sip by little sip. A wonderful way to star the new year.
