After months focused on other projects, I am finally 'coming back' to photography. These are some abstract pieces after a recent trip to Europe - winter brings raw beauty.
Things I love, opportunities of abstract thinking that reshape my world...with a twist
Some abstract 35mm shots returned. Film is not dead.
Getting some enjoyment from later sunsets. It means more time in the light. The river reflects it beautifully.
A few shots taken on Kodak Tri-X - taken along the coast of Western Australia.
35mm shots of a recent journey to Kalbarri, Western Australia. For those interested Fujifilm Superia on a Pentax Spotmatic.
A little abstract display from waterfalls near Pemberton, Western Australia.
High water mark for the Blackwood. It earned its name this evening.
France for me has almost universally meant peace, rest and beauty. I've never needed a good reason to go because not for the life of me could I think of a good reason not to. It breaks my heart to see what has happened in Paris. Acts of brutality that serve no benefit to anyone. Even if your heart and soul have sunk into darkness, as for these killers they surely have, such hate only serves to plunge you deeper into the abyss of misery. I cannot imagine the fear and bewilderment that the French are feeling right now, but I know this is a country that endured occupation by the Nazis, survived two World Wars, and has shaped the world with its passions and perceptions. Not for one second would I not consider going back, and what has happened draws me close, not further, from bonds of solidarity and love for this wonderful, beautiful place. No sense has come from today, but for the future of France I know hope and compassion it will implore. Those that have died may they rest in peace, those that have survived, they will live, endure and flourish in the great wide sea of humanity. Liberté. Egalité. Fraternité.
