A must see. Simply beautiful.


Over the weekend I had a moment of clarity, during which I felt sure of what I wanted to do in regards to photography.  You could even say I found "my vision".

Don't congratulate me yet, though - as tends to happen with moments of clarity, this one came and went ;-)

Still, I'm not at square one any more - in fact, I feel like I've taken a major step forwards.  At the moment I'm way too self concious to go into details - I'll leave that for the learning community I'm participating in.  

I do hope all of you had a great Monday - supposedly the most irritating day of the week :-)

Rubbish!! :-)))

Shot:  The cliffs at Thornwick Bay, Yorkshire UK.

Made it to Morocco last week, and took the opportunity to take a camel trek into the the edge of the Sahara desert. What an amazing experience. More to come.

Project 52: Week 7

Picking this project up again. Here is week 7, taken a few weeks ago during a break in the madness. I decided to process this one inspired by the new Game of Thrones portraits.

Most epic selfie ever
Black sand beaches make amazing contrast with the white ocean including this one near Shelter Cove, California. I knew I wanted a figure in the scene to provide a little more contrast and break the smooth curve of the surf. What better way than to grab my surfboard and head to the beach myself. A self-timer remote capturing one shot every 2 seconds made this easy.

From Marrakech in the middle of the souks. I was surprised how much attention a camera brings in the souks of Marrakech, so making photos of people was challenging to say the least. However a little patience, and luck seemed to have paid off on this one. More on the blog if you are curious.
