Kiwi Gal

FEATURED PHOTOGRAPHER:Kiwi Gal

first of all let me just say that fave photos changes all the time depending on my mood however i will choose 1 portrait and 1 macro since those are the two areas that im most fond of :)


my most fave picture of my daughter currently (it changes all the time but she is my most fave subject) and my passion in photography started when she was born, she will always be my muse.

the birds brought seed & flowers & bits of brightly colored string & placed them in her hair while she slept so that she would remember the wild joy of spring when she finally awoke...

my love of macro started one and half year ago when i acquire my very first macro lens and this will continue to be my creative outlet.....I found it amazing how much a lot of things look so different under a macro lens....this snail (my daughter named him Gary) is one of the few creatures that i never would have thought can look so amazing until i saw him thru my macro lens.
Thinks about moving to someplace else where everything is different enough to be fun again.
