Seeing The Writing On The Wall

I’ve always had mixed feelings about graffiti. Sometimes I love it and sometimes I hate it. Sometimes it’s beautiful and adds something to the environment, but sometimes it’s just destructive and ugly.

Abstracts from Life

I find water, rocks and cactus to be very natural abstract forms. Water is always intriguing, changing form and affecting everything it touches.
