  1. Lovely work and superb photos.

    I really enjoy this site. Thanks

  2. I am glad that you do, thanks.

  3. Yes I can see you do some fine work with your Gandolfi I can even feel the effort of the statues you capture them well.
    he images look quite different from the previous ones on Foma/Rodinal
