Hi Patrick,
Thank you so much for your comment. I took a look at your images, very impressive work.
After taking a workshop with photographer Richard Martin, I've come to realize that I have a fascination with linear structures, textures and anything graphic. As Richard would say...Explore your Creative Spirit it's all about "visual design" .
Thanks again for taking a look.

take care #9794781
