  3. i’m so glad you post your photographs nice and large, because they are such a pleasure to behold 🙂

  4. She does look concerned 😀 and it is a beautifully taken shot.

  5. Great one, Robert

    • Wow.. I’m sure you understand why I removed your comment. Talk about taking all the intrigue out of the photo! But yes, what a beautiful place! You could spend a whole day there and still not take enough photos. 🙂

      • No worries, Robert. If you want to stay all mysterious, it’s your bolg, your rules, right?. 😉 Me? Well, I actually think that knowing the location makes your image even more intriguing since you took it in a different direction with the toning and texture. Plus, now I know that underneath your tough, urban-photo-taking exterior lies a big ol’ softie. 🙂

        • Haha! Thank you for understanding, Milkay! 😉 I think quite a few people know where this one comes from, it’s just a pet peeve of mine. I think I’m the opposite as far as wanting to know where the photo was taken, what speed/iso, who/what is the subject. I usually stop myself after looking at the photo if I am reading the photographers comment and if they’re explaining their picture in great detail.. I just don’t find it to be relevant, unless it’s documenting a complete area. That’s just my opinion though. It’s all art, sometimes leaving room for interpretation makes it all the better! But I can see the irony about myself, posting photos and no text on ‘Word’press. I’m not quite sure if I fit in with the digital age regarding that. Most expect the location and the photographers explanation. I’m more of the person who just enjoys the photo and a title, nothing else is really needed.

          But don’t let that fool you, still gotta get dirty for the urbex shots, there is no way around that. Sometimes I think it’d be nicer if it were as safe or easy as these. The roof really will collapse on ya. I just took a three day vacation. 🙂

          Anyway, thanks again for your understanding, Milkay. 🙂

  6. I really like this one! Beautiful texture, and very dramatic…..and those eyes!!

  7. This is just breathtaking! I love old stories about sea faring days and glorious sips and this brings it all back 🙂

    • Thank you for your kind words and visit, Ramsha! Your photos are gorgeous, beautiful colors. 🙂

      • Thank you so much, that means a lot coming from someone with as much work as you! Im just a student and starting up just now but I adore photography and am very very proud to come from such a rich culture that has allowed me to really appreciate color and their meanings and how they can affect people. Please keep showing support, any advice and encouragement will keep me going 🙂

  8. awesome! love the little bit of color.

  9. Figurehead carving for ships is a special area of wood sculpture. I have seen copies of such made out of some composite material in molds and painted. They look very real but cost a lot of money.

  10. You’ve brought her to life Robert! I can feel her presence in this photo. It’s great.

  11. she is so beautiful.

  12. She looks afraid to me. Beautiful photo. Can you answer my twins question please, please!!!!

    • Thanks, Amy! I’m sorry, but I must be missing your comment on Twin. I’ve checked three times but I don’t see it there! I’d be glad to answer any question though. You can post it here or email me. 🙂

  13. Hi Robert, thanks for liking my stuff. Certainly appreciate it, when your work is so good! Looking forward to seeing more over time, CHeers!

  14. Lovely wood carving. It’s a shame that they hardly make stuff like this anymore…
    The photo is good too!

  15. Truly beautifull perfectly processed as always.

  16. I like this special wood carving, which seems to hide a lot of stories.

  17. I love the texture…incredible.

  18. Oh Gosh, absolutely stunning!! What a great find!
