  • Friday fence portrait collection

    Rainy November morning is perfect for a fence safari! First shot taken with small aperture just because I forgot to change the shooting mode. Usually I'm lazy and use P.

  • At the office


  • Viewing

  • Bedtime

    My contribution for The Sunday Challenge. It was not an easy challenge to discover some ordinary everyday item(s) in the extraordinary place. But surrealism came to rescue =D
