    I think this my favorite Richard, it speaks loudly and the series is outstanding a favorite deep minimalist series of work! My Vote.

    Thanks Michele.
    Spiritual awareness... seems like you are the one who is spiritually aware. But maybe you are right :-)
    Yes, I like this as a conceptual image. Yet this is the pix that one of my (more conservative) photography buddies said might make the viewer feel perplexed - because there is nothing much to view!

    Thanks Rebecca,
    I am really pleasantly surprised at the positive response from you - and Blasklist and Michele and others who have fav'ed this.
    If I were to enter this in some competition in Singapore, I think it won't make it past the bottom 10 percent.
    I dunno. Maybe one day I shall try.
