  1. That's such a beautiful sculpture!

  2. Gorgeous. Especially the rose.

  3. Simply beautiful Merisi.
    The lighting on the rose is scrumptious and I love the fluid feel of the sculpture.

  4. Remarkable photography. Your rose is beautiful. I take it the reflections of light in the windows is actually the scene behind the windows of the facade? The bronze statue is so lovely especially the tone of the bronze. Thanks Merisi

    1. Jim,
      the windows reflect the scene behind the photographer (the facade and the garden right in front were already in deep shade, while the trees were still lit by the sun, brilliantly so)


Thank you for taking the time to leave a note.
