Planning

    A new year is upon us. 2022 arrived not so much with a bang more of a whimper. Covid is still influencing what we can and can’t do. Having said this. It does not prevent us from doing different things and this is where planning comes in. Planning is the one thing that we all forget to do. This is not the minutiae but the grand scheme. Where will I go, stay, and photograph over the coming year? So, the maps have come...

Missing Something?

  I have come, somewhat reluctantly, to the conclusion that there is something missing from my photography. I am not sure what, but there is a vital part missing. The umph, the bit that takes it from ordinary to brilliant. I wish I knew what it was or how to find it, but I know that it is missing.

Sunset

  The last embers of daylight are sitting just under the horizon. The sunset is lighting up the oncoming evening with a sullen red glow. Only a few moments ago a firestorm had swept across the sky sunlight blasted its way over the low clouds igniting the sky into a feast of reds and oranges. It changes so quickly.

Age, The Inner Child

    Remember this “Grow up and act your age!” “Don’t be a child and jump in puddles”. Or, perhaps later in life.“You have to make something of your life; Be Someone. Do something”   A Trade At what stage do we trade our life away to the office, work and proving to others how clever we are. When does the pursuit of money, fame, and a bigger house change who we were to what we are? I am not suggesting for...
