Freddy, today for the first time I came across your work. I wish I has done before. I love this picture. It reminds me of a Japanese garden.
I am at work now and stopped working to look at your gallery. I love your flowers and your birds and the cats. I know very little about the technical side of photography. I just go by feelings and I love almost your entire gallery.Fernanda #9413643
