  1. Thank you my dear Ana. FYI, today in the West we celebrate St. Valentine’s Day in remembrance of friendship and love. I wish to celebrate our pure and outstanding friendship. May all your dreams, big or small become true.

    Happy Valentine! 🙂


  2. The triangular shape of the bouquet is really attractive. Our Maximilian sunflower sometimes will grow a bit that way, but a careful hand in arranging always is good. And the extra greenery really sets it off — just a lovely photo, Omar.

    1. Hello Linda:

      As you already know, painters and photographers love geometric figures while composing their work. I followed the same pattern. In this case, you are absolutely right–the bouquet has a triangular shape. It draws the attention of the viewer.

      I’m so glad you appreciated the picture. Tomorrow will the last one of this series.

      BTW, Happy Valentine’s Day. In Panama we call it “Dia de la Amistad” (Friendship Day).



  3. A comeback memory from my days as an artist in oils. The pyramid shape is very old and common for as long as I can remember. Because I went full time from art to photography, sometimes it would take me an hour or even longer to find the spot to set the tripod to take the picture. I have even waited 8 hours so the late afternoon sun illuminated the picture the way I wanted it to be seen. When the sun got around where I wanted it, I snapped the picture and the picture part was over in milli-seconds.

  4. Hello Abe:

    Photography is much more complex than many people think. It is indeed the art of painting with light.

    I have seen your work, and it shows how much you master the discipline. Painters would be excellent photographers because they treasure the value of light, composition, vantage points and a lot more skills used in modern photography.

    Thank you for your thoughtful comment.

    God Bless,
