Reflections From A Soul

They say the eyes are the windows to the soul but like most glass windows can be reflective. I met Patrick and his son, he was over visiting from Nigeria as he son was a student in Liverpool. I was drawn to Patrick's eyes and the gentle nature of his face as a whole. I asked if I could take his portrait and he simply nodded and gave me a small smile. I could see as I took this how clearly I could see myself reflected back in his deep eyes.

When I got home and began to edit it the saying of "The eyes are the windows to your soul" but in Patrick's case they are a window to our souls as well. 

I have sat on this image for a while, I was selfish, unsure if I wanted to share or not, for me its a personal image, not sure why it just is but I have a tendency to not share what is personal.

Good Morning

I could wax lyrical about this morning but I think mother nature does a better job than me so I'll just wish you all a good morning.

Skyscrapers have huge glassy surfaces that absorb heat, producing nothing but high air conditioning bills. That could all change with HeliOptix, an integrated, concentrating solar facade—an array of miniature generators that sit in between 2 panes of glass, generating both electricity and hot water that can be used for a number of applications.

Today I spent some time playing with various light modifiers, preparing for our upcoming Jewelry Photography workshop. This is one of the shots from many I've got.
Quick touch-up, almost as-is except cleaning dents and color adjustments. 

BTW, less than a week left for early bird price (as well as few seats left), do not miss it! And yes, you can join us online too:
