Artist' statement:
"I love making objects from various kinds of materials but metalsmithing keeps intriguing me and surprising me all the time.I work with metal, especially silver, because I love the challenge with it. Metal doesn’t allow any uncertainty, and I establish a dialogue that always brings me to solutions full of surprises.I make pieces that are more often than not influenced by nature and her organic shapes."

PROJECT 52/3

It's been raining for few days, no chance to go out "chasing the rainbow" (I mean: taking pictures), the only way to continue my 52 project is to "play" with my camera indoors. Not very happy about it, but this is it for now.

PROJECT 52/1

I've decided to join the 52 project being interested to built up a kind of testimony of the year; it could be helpful thinking sometimes the days are skimming as ghosts with no evidence in anyone's memory.
First photo for the very first week of January has been taken in Alameda Gardens, not very inviting at this time of the year, but still a lovely place where you could breathe fresh air and enjoy your walk in peace and tranquility.
In background, one of the tennis fields (as a reminder that the first Grand Slam of the year will soon start in Australia, not that I need a reminder being an old tennis lover for a long, long time....).

I really liked the contrast between those different overtones of red and green, not a very common wintry image but, hey, this is Gibraltar! 18 degrees Celsius, no snow...bless!
Have a lovely week whenever you are xxxx
