Inspired by Jorge Luis Borge's short stories and an homage to his work.

(Slight manipulation, actually, but still goes to the right category)

J'espère que tu vas bien. Moi je suis allé voir la vengeance dans la peau...

I am searching for a few images for my Lost Book Club and Museum and came across your Borges series. These would be perfect, as Borges was a major inspiration for my new club. Please check it out and let me know if I can post your piece in it.
Thank you.

Hello and thanks.
I propose you to post one image from the series, then, in the credits, add a link to the journal where all images are featured [link] (I don't know why but the thumbnails don't display currently here :? )

Thank you. The link you supplied does not seem to go to that series, so I have provided a link to your gallery as well as thumbs of the five images in the series. Hope this is OK.

Yeah, sure. Unfortunately, you can't add thumbs to a deviation description, as you can see, but you can add links.
Actually, I've provided a link to another series, I made a mistake :D

Cheers :wave:

i really like this series but this has to be my favorite (#5 [link] in close seond) becuase of the delicate and flawless manipulation of the water in the shell. the water is sort subdued and very believable. nice work! :clap:

Just by looking one feels compelled to pick up his book to read. I also feel as if a booming voice needs to annouce "coming this summer a new book to intice a reader to a time and place" Great job!
