Quiet Contemplation

The day is long as it is wide, But if you measure it with your finger, It’ll only be ‘this’ long. Not quite long enough, But enough to point to that which you desire. I want that. And that, And that, But not that. And so, I sit in quiet contemplation Of a life yet…

Three Days of Dublin Summer

I’m often at a bit of a loss as to what to post here as I seem to have a very broad range of subjects that I photograph, and that I have photographed over the years. For the past couple of weeks I have been dedicating my time to my Dublin pictures, taken last May…

The following series was taken in Chinatown, Washington DC back in February this year. One of my favourite streets to shoot is along H Street NW once you pass beneath the Friendship Archway, which can be seen in the last image.
