Each image is a celebration of creation, of life and taken with love. Truly a rare gem."

    "Every day (every day!) I find one or more of alfarman’s photographs to save as a favorite. That says something about the quality of his eye. He seems to step into the garden, and unseen worlds call out to him. I sometimes think of him as Treebeard with a camera - I hope he does not mind. He balances shadow and light in a way completely unique to him. His flowers seem to swim up from the depths of the ocean to reveal their individual beauty. Dream-like but clear, alfarman’s images astound and inspire me, and I can’t wait to see what will show up next."
