avatar head outlineHi, Welcome to my Photo Blog! The aim of this site is to create words and pictures about interesting things i see around me such as a beautiful landscape, a smiling face, an athletic cat running up a tree or a dopey dog lazing in the sun. In the process of recording these images i am making an expanding collection of high quality, high definition, free photos about nature, animals, people and places. So i want Photorasa to be an interesting photo blog as well as a useful internet image resource. All the images here are at least 1920 x 1080 pixels with higher resolutions available upon request. I hope you enjoy your stay! :)
