The Sands of Time

The sands of time cannot be stopped years pass whether we will them or not, but we can remember…….what has been lost may yet live on in memories, that which you will hear is imperfect and fragmented yet treasure it for without you it does not exist.

Global Warming

I was envisioning this, as the final outcome for this image, when I shot it but I just wasn’t sure it would work. This was taken in Page, Arizona as we were waiting to be picked up by our guide to see the slot canyons.

Milanese Bicycle

It would be a shame to visit a new European city, especially one in Italy and not seek out a bicycle I can photograph.

The Reader

A reader in Milan. He provided me with a perfect photo-op and didn’t even know it.

Duomo di Milano

After a 3 1/2 hour train ride through the Alps we arrived in Milan. The forecast for the day we arrived was cloudy and rain. Luckily it had rained early in the morning so by the time we arrived the rain had stopped.

After checking into our hotel and dumping our bags we headed out immediately and made the Duomo our first stop. I always find that dull, grey days make great black and white images and that’s exactly what I was pre-visualizing.

Watching the Crowd Pass By

This image was taken whilst walking around the old city of Prague.

It was a very sunny day and I wanted to make sure that I exposed properly for both the crowd who were in direct sunlight and the architecture under the arches. I took a series of 5 brackets and then processed them in Lightroom using the Photomerge HDR function.  I was quite pleased with the result. I then converted the image to black & white using Topaz Black & White Effects.
