|Intro:||hello friends :-) as many of you know i've been planning to move to italy for a long time... well.. here i am! living in a beautiful small town in Umbria with my kitty Bodmin once again by my side.. so obviously things have been pretty unsettled for a while and i haven't been able to visit TL very much.. also for fault of not having a dedicated internet connection yet which means i can't afford to stay online very long... but i hope to find the inspiration to pick up my camera again soon and also the ability to share the results...|
so a little about me.. i guess my past is rather gypsy like.. i'm a middle eastern born, english raised, part persian, part american, part swedish and goodness knows what else citizen of the world now trying to learn again to use my wings among the enchanted hills of central italy.. a person guided always by the heart with an enormous passion for all the arts and creative expressions of the soul.. but of those arts i practice rather than simply observe, photography along with writing are probably the most important for me -- a beautiful way to record and share a vision, either of the eyes or of the mind, that touches & inspires you and can hopefully touch & inspire others too.. for me this is the most important aspect of any art.. and just like a poem or a painting, i feel every image has it's own story and it's own soul as well as a part of mine...
i haven't had much experience but i try to compensate with imagination, enthusiasm & lots of passion! i love the creative possibilities of evolving an image into new visions through post processing but am also very passionate for traditional minimal PP photography which i hope to do more as my health allows.. you can find more of that side of me on PBase.. i strongly believe both approaches to our wonderful craft are in their own ways equally beautiful, exciting & creative and to be able to celebrate the whole spectrum is part of the beauty of TL :-)
finally i must apologize that for fault of my health i'm sometimes unable to critique as much as i'd like or reply to comments & messages even though i'd dearly wish to.. your feedback and lovely words are all truly precious to me and i'm very grateful for them... i just get so exhausted that it's really hard to keep up with replying.. so please don't think i'm ignoring anyone! ^_^
as mentioned, you can find more of my photos on PBase
hugs to all you shutterbugs :-)
