has been a member since Mar 2009 and goes by papaja5.

I am curious, shy, and constantly inspired by the little details in the world around me. I love patterns and texture and always looking for ways to incorporate them into my photography. I received my MFA from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco in 2006.
