what does it take?!

my top 3

Well I must admit I was stunned few months ago to watch, every five minutes or so, one of these three images being sold one after another to a total of nearly 100 pieces ...So, this means someone really liked my images or they found a good use to them! I'm really proud of these three images, not only cause of their sale record in my portfolio, but I really liked shooting in that dentists office which was modern and brightly colored, and watching them makes me forget about my dentist anxiety... continue reading

Funny joke ... not related to photography ... but nice to share!

A burglar broke into a house one night, knowing for a fact that the owners were not home at the moment. He went directly to the living-room and stated opening drawers of the furniture looking for some money or jewelry. As he was doing that he heard this voice in the dark, coming from behind him: "Jesus sees you!". Frightened he stopped immediately and he went for the cabinets. As he was looking in the cabinets, the same voice: "Jesus sees you!".He left the cabinets alone and went straight for the... continue reading

A journalist photographer was caught out in a rain shower when he saw a dark gloomy house. While he was drying off in the house he heard scary sounds and saw a ghost coming towards him. He grabbed his camera to take pictures. The ghost asked him what he was doing, he said "I just want to take your picture for thenewspaper." The ghost was glad for the exposure and posed for the photographer. When his film was all done he thanked the ghost and rushed to his office to get the film developed. When he... continue reading
