Breath of life by bellakotak


A portrait introducing Scarlet, the newest addition to my In Bloom series.

I’ve been mulling for the past few months about what this project means to me, what am I trying to express and what direction would I like it to go in. Until now I feel as though I’ve let it flow, a dream of fairytales and flowers. I’d only just begun to contemplate the addition of a new character, perhaps a younger self, an older evolution, or even a child… and that’s when I met Scarlet. A sign if I ever saw one.

Since this shoot I’ve been feeling so inspired that I can barely sleep. Ideas for new pictures jotted on various papers spilling across my desk. It’s an exciting time!

Anyway I hope you like this portrait! I’ll be announcing a print giveaway next week, so watch out for that!!

Hope you all have a great weekend!

The luscious Grotto by StefanHefele

“The luscious Grotto” – Azores

There are still locations that are not mentioned in the (German) tourist guides but are definately worth a visit. I was thrown back into the Columbia River Gorge as I entered this green cathedral. Lush, green, mossy and everywhere sounds of nature around me. One of my favourite natural landscapes to take photos beside mountains.
