Men sitting by pond fishing taking in serenity

Day 118 – Fishing for serenity

"There is certainly something in angling that tends to produce a serenity of the mind." ~ Washington Irving I guess this must be the case but fishing is something that I just do not get. I understand the solitude, the quiet, the peace etc but just sitting there would not work for me. I need something to do or else I get bored and irritable and I am pretty sure sitting and staring at the water hoping that something might happen at some point would drive me bonkers. Each to their own though, if fishing is your thing, I hope…

People sitting silent on the London underground

Day 109 – Silent Underground

"Focus on the journey, not the destination. Joy is found not in finishing an activity but in doing it." ~ Greg Anderson I have discovered that there is a huge difference between how people behave on the Tube (Subway) in London compared to how they behave on the subway in Philadelphia. In London the place is like a library. I am not exaggerating, everyone tends to sit (or stand if it's busy) very quietly. There is sometimes a low hum of conversation but often even couples and groups fall silent. In Philly I discovered that people happily chat away not…

Day 102 – Experiment

"I have always had an instinct for doing new things. Call it good or bad, I love to experiment." ~ Ravi Shankar I love to experiment with my photography. I am not sure it is ever possible to feel like to have taken enough pictures and with the invention of digital editing the experimentation can go on well after the initial image has been taken. Not that you could not also do that in the dark room days but accessibility to that kind of thing for most people was just a dream. This image is in fact two images. One…

Day 99 – London Life

London: "It is the biggest aggregation of human life – the most complete compendium of the world.” ~ Henry James This picture was taken in a part of London that I call home, even though I sadly do not live here any more. I grew up in Kentish Town and my parents still live there. Like much of London the cost of housing is astronomical and being able to afford to live there is but a dream at the moment but one day, maybe, I will get to live again in the city that I always think of as home.…

Day 95 – Something beautiful

"The singular point of beautiful objects, and people, is that they are experienced not as parts, or ratios between cheekbones and chin, but as wholes. The experience of beauty is a perception, but it is one that mixes up various other sensations and makes them converge in a particular way." ~ Charles Jencks We always tend to think of women when we use the word beauty or beautiful but I think that is the result of women's value being so focus on how they look not who and what they are rather than on any actual truths. Men are beautiful…

Swirl of text on paper with pen writing words

Day 94 – Swirl of words

“I love writing. I love the swirl and swing of words as they tangle with human emotions.” ~ James A. Michener This is my daughters hand. She is an excellent artist and writing curly swirly script is one of the her favourite things to do. When I asked her to help me create this image she would not let me take any images until she had designed out what she was going to do and then she spent ages finishes the words even after I had taken the picture I wanted.

Day 90 – Dear Brighton

"Ah, dear Brighton —piers, queers and racketeers." ~ Noel Coward Definitely a quote that is of its time although Brighton still have a strong relationship with piers and continues to be a cosmopolitan young town that attracts a very diverse population but I am fairly sure its association with racketeers is someone diminished unless you class the overpriced hoteliers which have capitalised on Brighton trendy popular image to hike up room prices to crazy levels. I have a huge soft spot for Brighton. I lived there as a student for a year, as a Londoner I felt at home there.…

Self portrait of hands reaching out touching

Day 89 – Reachin’ out

"Hands, touchin' hands Reachin' out, touchin' me, touchin' you" ~ Sweet Caroline by Neil Diamond This is a self portrait I took and then edited in Topaz Fusion Lens Effect as well as working on the light and contrast to give my hands a dark gnarly look. I know it is probably a bit sinister and spooky to go with this 'sweet' song but I rather like that contrast and the suggestion that the lyrics of this song could have another meaning.

Day 71 – Who are they?

I cannot help but wonder about these two. I captured them outside Kings Cross Station waiting, but for what, I train, someone else to meet them and who are they to one another, lovers, siblings, friends. I cannot help but wonder...
