I'm inspired by landscape, both natural and urban, I like to celebrate the mundane, forgotten corners, moments, juxtapositions, effects of light. When people appear, they're there mostly to populate my images, not as the main event. I admire photographers who can do people well, I just find it hard to ask.
I'm into equipment like most photographers, but don't particularly like talking about it. I like quality of film and the versatility of digital, I'm not dogmatic about either.
I like flickr for the connections I've made and the extraordinary images I see. The appeal of my photography is not obvious or universal but here I've found people who "get" it. Thanks to all who've encouraged me with positive comments since 2006.
