kamaly how could i not vote for such a novel idea. i see he has a warmer spot.steve

kamalyn on March 29, 2010

Thanks Steve! LOL, it might look warmer, but it was just as cold and windy! But spring is on it's way for Easter Week-end at least ( but we've got about 4" of rain before then!)

Greetings, Tomas

Thanks very much for such a nice comment and the YS Tomas! And you've just posted a lot of really interesting new photos - I've enjoyed looking through them!

I like them both, kamalyn. Even if I am a bit of a nudge.

kamalyn on April 2, 2010

Thanks not1word! If you'd like, I can arrange for you to purchase both paintings for your living room! :D

I don't think that I could fit one ocean in my living room, let alone two of them.

Well, n1w - then how about a much smaller salt lake?

Thanks very much for your enthusiastic comment and the YS Joilton Obom :)

Excellent idea! Greetings, Vladimir.

kamalyn on April 29, 2010

Thank you Vladimir! The credit really goes to the sculptor for this one, though. Very clever sculpture, that allows it to interact with its surroundings. Cheers!

kamaly i recon you are right it certainly is going to make for some interesting shots by the way did you have it made fits your profile. i certainly hope its heavy or it may end up going away unplanned! check page one for some playing i think you will like. steve

Hi Steve! lol, yeah, I found out it isn't going anywhere any time soon. It's a metal sculpture that has been there for over ten years through many many rough winter storms. And since it made it through the hurricane-force winds this winter, I'm sure it will be there through many many more :D

...and when he didn't dead than he paint till today!!! :DDD Great shot! Loved! Cheers Petra

kamalyn on May 21, 2010

i've saved this one on my hd, hope you don't mind. perfect exposed and original photo. the landscape is wonderful. congratulations

kamalyn on August 31, 2010

Thanks so much for that bragee (though whoelius up above didn't agree so much with the exposure part, lol.) Of course the key to this photo really is the sculpture and the concept behind it. What is interesting to me is how many people who frequent the park it is in - even photographers - hardly even notice it and its possibilities. When I was there for last month's full moon, several people who saw me trying to line up shots through the frame stopped in their tracks and looked shocked as they realized it was more than a static sculpture. One group of vacationers then laughed and switched out having their photos taken in the frame, so that it looked as though the painter was making their portrait.
