"Selling art can be hit and miss, especially when it comes to photography. Digital photography has revolutionized the way people take and make photographs and now everyone has a camera, even if it is only a phone camera. (By the way, I’m not knocking those phone cameras.

HU (pronounced like the word “hue”), is an ancient name for God, and is sung as a love song to God. Throughout the ages, followers of many spiritual traditions have used prayer, the singing of holy words, and meditation to bring themselves closer to God. In the same way, those who have discovered HU, sing it for their spiritual upliftment.
