instant sunshine

well, what can I say

today is quite gloomy here, so a pic from costa del sol with (appropriately) sun in it. Btw, when you fully close the aperture in order to take this type of "star sun" image, what does the number of visible rays depend on? )there are eight of them on this one). My guess is the number of "petals" in the lens, but not sure.

btw2 - not dissimilar picture remains my bestseller on istockphoto site, accumulating over 400 dollars by now. There are pictures with lot more sales there, but they belong to other people, alas)

almost monochrome image of narrow street in Fuengirola. Was too boring in original shape, so played with it in photoshop and quite like the results :)

still snowing today. as it is a wrong type of snow (as usual), schools opened in the morning but then closed again.

I've tried to teach Timur "wet-into-wet-on-limited-area" technique (see example here).
He watched with interest, nodded wisely, said that he understood everything and then produced this dragon - that has nothing to do with the technique, but is very pic in his very own style.
