This Time Transient

This Time Transient I sat Watched the darkness This time Passed me by Whisper in the growling doom With glow bug Lights Tiny murmurs mimic wind   I sat Heard the wailing This time Deafness saved me Parachute Drop and float On water Ripples like a long silk cloth   Did Walk And Run And breath   Did daylight See Blue button Cloudlets In…

Random Detritus

In contemplation of objects. In search of simplicity. In creation of minimalism. Studies of the random things that people no longer need.    

Fleeting – Part 2

It goes without saying that it’s been a while. But I don’t want to write about that. Before the long silence, the crisis of faith, and the months where I couldn’t even look at the camera, I posted a poem called “fleeting”. Now, finally, I am posting the series of images that goes with it. I know that I like to write what is…

Seeking Solace in the Sea and Sky

I have been putting off posting this series for very strange reasons. Perhaps the strangest of these, for any who know me, is that I am out of words for it. I couldn’t originally figure out why. Words are things that abound in my head, and they flow from me remarkably freely. Perhaps too freely sometimes. So why the block on this work? And…

Fleeting

A little bit of poetic wandering (and wondering) over the transience of our existence, and the power of our family ties.   Fleeting.   One second It seems No more – Inward And Outward breath   Just that: The past is gone The present goes And the future Is a fleeting Dream As I blink.   Grasping hands Cannot close Fingers about them, They…

Winter Time – with a hint of chiaroscuro

    It’s been a long couple of days shooting this series. With nothing really to “aim” for with it, apart from my own enjoyment. I really just wanted to shoot something that captured simplicity. Some more traditional Still Life, with produce rather than detritus, on two planes, the vertical and horizontal. Without complex heights, layering or position. Natural light and one reflector.  Without…

Returning to My Roots

It’s hard to know where to being with this post. There’s a large part of me that is trying to get me not to write it. How do you describe what is almost a rebellion against my own desire to be an artist? An urge to bury my creativity? An anger against the very concept of whether I am an artist? Why should I…

Time in America – The photographic story of a road trip

It’s taken me a few more months than I had intended; but here it is, edited and ready for viewing – the Time in America series, part fine art, part landscape and part documentary photography, it’s been a thought provoking and genre changing experience for me: You can learn a lot about yourself from doing photography – sitting in a car all day, feeling…
