Cracky paving was bumpy to walk, but my hardships were richly rewarded by looking underfoot. The sharp impression of something alive pierced me , so I stopped in an awe. Would I dare to set my foot upon the unknown face? The visual thoughts were the challenging. Therefore, I took a photo.

inspirational saying

photo prompt TEST of LOVE

As a saying goes, it is so as you say. Yet such affirmations didn’t change neither my case-record nor a sense of well-being. I succeeded only in taking a photo : “Test of Love” This shot is far from technical excellence but it is the  prompt to think more responsibly.

Once upon a time I questioned myself, what would happen if I would make no new artworks more? Would I stop being a man ?  Time came to respond. If my works had any value, it was so not because of my prints but the attitude towards life. I was then and am a christian.
