Barcelona - Double Landscape:




Forever Always

A poem by Peter S. Quinn

Forever always
My heart shall stay,
Forever always
No different way.

Just as the present shall be,
So shall all life turn;
We are just only - we,
And reap what we earn.

Forever always
In content and worth,
Forever always
From start of all birth.

We know what we see,
It should us concern;
The soul that lies in me,
In flames it shall burn...

Forever always
If I think differently,
Forever always
Please let it not be.

I gotta say, I really don't have anything bad to say about this picture. I seriously don't.

For a critique? Nah, I can't really say anything about a critique mind you, but I think you did an amazing job! It looks so amazing. Surreal, actually. I have to admit, it doesn't look like a photo, it looks like you drew it (And hun...I've seen your drawings and they are absolutely amazing!
The vision? Hmm, I suppose you could see that type before but HOW you did it is absolutely amazing and really captures the eyes.

I really do love your work. :) Keep it up :)

I think I still do not qualify to give criticism to you.
But I will try to give appropriate and constructive criticism about what I see in your work. I really like the color, texture and mood which you are trying create in the picture. But, the man in the picture looks have a lot in mind. I think the man in this picture should looks more relax because the title was "where the soul can rest".

I really admire your works and your works is amazing and hope you are not offended by what I have wrote.

sorry for my bad english.

This image has been a favorite of mine for some time. Not just because of the angles : which are amazing. Not just because it's a black and white : a genre that has always been near and dear to me. Not just because it seems to have something to say : sometimes it seems to be so personal that I just have to respect it's secrets and draw my own conclusions. The lighting, the texture, the subject, it all comes together in this simple work of art.
You have such talent and skill. I wish you all of the success in the world in your endeavours.

I just revisited this photo again when I was going through the populars and I felt a peace surrounding it. The lines, diagonals especially, and the color is dull but calming. The whole composition is very emotionally appealing...
