Julienne: I've not seen many "curl" shots which prompted more than a glance, but this one not only caught my eye; it made me a fan. That you have the eye of an artist announces itself from every shot Professionally I was a writer/editor (now retired) and in that primarily a poet; I'm happy to say that if called upon to describe your work, I'd be speechless. Beautiful, my dear. Art gives what nothing else can. We are glad recipients here.
