Miami by night takes on a very different character than Miami by day. As impressive as the Art Deco architecture of Miami’s South Beach is during the daylight hours, it dons a very different costume past the crepuscular hour and becomes a dizzying concoction of dancing neon lights and soft glows that entice the passerby to…

The Steady Sea

  Words due to their limited range of expression often create large colourful swirls in a steady sea, that when seen from high above look enticing and beautiful, but detract from the calmness, and the depth of the waters they swim within. The secret of the sea hidden in plain sight, its nature obscured and…

Señor Frog’s

Miami South Beach is famous for its very well preserved Art Deco buildings, and if like me you love the Art Deco style, then it’s a little treasure-trove of colourful architectural wonders. There was a real nautical feel about the architecture of that period, and more often than not you find buildings of this style hugging…

Eastern Princess #1

In reverse order perhaps I’m posting this image in a small series I’ve named ‘Eastern Princesses’. As mentioned in my recent post of the same name I seem to have acquired a small collection of Asian women in beautiful frocks along mine and Bill’s travels. From wedding dresses to the purely cos play avant-garde, these ladies know…

The Streets of Rome

The wonderful thing about having a big ol’ zoom lens is that you can get a bird’s eye view of interesting cities like Rome. It helped somewhat that I was already several stories up in the air when I took the shot. No, I’m not actually a bird. I was in fact standing at the…

Painted Cities – Illustrated Rome

I created multiple version of this image, all of which I think have merits as final prints. Below are my favourites of the batch. Bill and I discovered when we arrived in Rome at the very iconic site of the Colosseum, that it really wasn’t quite what we had been expecting. Not as we had…

High Fashion in Noir

  It’s a personal challenge of mine to take an image and to try to find the art in it. Often I’m trying to recapture a sense of what I felt when I took the original shot, as well as trying to create something new and exciting. My objective through photography is to portray the…

High Fashion

Mannequins in shop windows have become another recurrent theme for me, amongst many others. In fact this little series is a marriage of several themes that tend to catch my eye when I’m out and about on my travels, windows, reflections in windows, shop window displays and, mannequins. My eyes are ever kept busy. High fashion mannequins keep…

A Walk Through Chinatown

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. It’s full of colour and always bustling with life and interesting things to see….
