Mechanical Dragon Fly's

By NDODS    
Good Morning to you all.

Firstly I wish to send you all a huge thank you for all the wonderful caring and supportive words which I have received throughout the week. Things have been tough but I am slowly getting through that dark period. In order to try and eradicate those negative thoughts I have been doing a spot of painting, "not decorating". I shall say no more about the piece until I upload it a little later during the week. For the time being you will have to put up with this little capture/creation I managed to do during a break from sleeping and painting.

I hope that you all have a great day ahead.

Regards Nathan

P.S. Please forgive me if I do not get to view all of your images today, as we shall be popping out here there and everywhere.

Is it landing or taking off, Nathan? It appears to have a fighter escort, so I presume it has landed at a remote part of the airport and is the subject of interest from anti-terrorist personnel...Grin

25 Aug 2013 3:57PM
Another creative work Nathan!
Cracking image Nathan.

I think it is a super creative mind that can compare the makings of man against the makings of mother nature, but what you have seen and compared is brilliant.

Spot on colours well observed.

Hang in there bud.


25 Aug 2013 4:29PM
What a beautiful image, Keep positive
25 Aug 2013 4:43PM
Well observed and taken. Love the comparison to a dragonfly 'cos it DOES look like one and huge at that!
Keep on the up-and-up, Nathan. Look after yourself, and keep looking on the brighter side Smile
