My Bio
I'm a non- practicing geologist.
I got my first camera (and picture) at the age of seven. I'm afraid I have improved my skills not much since then.
Pencils, pens, crayons, and brushes have danced on my fingers since I have memory (my parents' home walls remember it very well...).
Today, my daughter says my photos are nice, but that I can only draw monsters...
Possibly she's right.

I have just submitted The Island of the Lizard King's map to my gallery. It has been a nice small proyect: It has recalled nice memories for my late childhood, challenged some of my abilities, and entertained me in this days of isolation because of the COVID-19 (Damn it!). Also, as geologist, I couldn't help trying to find geological sense to the main island's features, something quite risky and difficult in most of the fantasy maps, that are usually designed just for aesthetic purposes, forgetting all logic and laws of physics (A wizard, or a god, did it, didn't he?) I was going to expose my conclusions in the pictures description, but th

I wrote about expectations before, and how they tend to twist and surprise the artist. This happened with my first (and only! :crying:) Daily Deviation: A photo I judged not good enough by itself, and submitted to the stock folder. In some way, something very similar happened to a couple of images of an angel statue (that I, prosaically, titled "Cemetery angel 1" and "Cemetery angel 2") I took some years ago: They are not DD's, but, even though I sentenced them to the stock folder too, little by little, they are among the most faved and praised of my gallery. I now all the merit is hers (well, the sculptor's...): I just framed without much

During the last months, taking advantage of the little spare time I had, I've been doing the Nikon School Online Grade. Now it's time to finish it, and for that I gotta do a final proyect, consisting of eight photographs on a common theme. I've chosen Urban Landscapes: Probably it's the one I'm more confortable with, and, back home after holidays, it's the nearest field, apart of the portrait (but my models are mainly my daughter and family, and I'd never upload photos of them). I want to focus it like a working project, so, early this morning I took the camera and spent several hours roaming the city... and think I gotta change the method.

Thank you for the faves!

Thank you for the llama!! :dance:

Thanks for the llama 😍

I knew a llama once. At least I thought I knew him. I mean, how well can anyone really know anyone, much less a llama. With their air of mystery and thinly veiled contempt. It’s hard. But I digress.

His name was Kevin. But for reasons I will never understand, he would only ever answer to Albert. Identity issues aside, things started out okay. The usual introductory sniffing and sneezing went well, despite his allergies. But then things went downhill during the ritual licking phase of the pleasantries. We pushed through. Had it not been for the spitting, we might have even been able to make it work, but alas, after just 3 seconds of bittersweet brotherhood, we finally decided to part ways. It’s kind of sad, when you think about it. Spitting seems like such an innocent thing to fight over, but he was pretty adamant that I should stop and that was just not going to happen. We might have overcome that issue, but Kevin, like all llamas, was very competitive. First came the stench competitions. Then it was belching contests. And lastly, a painstaking count to see which one was hairier. You can clearly see why our relationship was doomed. The poor fellow was a bit of a sore loser.

So under the cover of high noon, he fled, taking with him a failed friendship, an obliviously optimistic dread of the future, and my sixth favorite toothbrush. Now that he is gone, I can honestly say, it's for the best. He was too much of a chick magnet anyway and who needs that poultry drama? ヽ(ಠ_ಠ)ノ
