I capture the time and space around me through black and white images. These images can be rearranged and reconstructed to map the real or imagined memories of my life. I have been carrying a camera with me for 30 years. I shoot the things in life, where I am. The subjects are usually not beautiful on their own, but somehow strike me by the beauty found in their commonality. Not the extraordinary, but the ordinary. Simple, usually quiet subjects that may go unnoticed. Black and white because I guess that is the way I see. To me, my images feel a bit sad, a bit strange, a bit interesting, and the subjects, somehow unique. I hope you enjoy and thank you for visiting.

Does this guy ever take a bad photo??? One of the most consistent, technically proficient, and naturally talented photographers that I've found on Flickr. He can seemingly find a good angle on almost anything...and routinely finds angles that would never cross my mind in a million years....dammit. Respect.

frntprchprss is a very talented photographer. He has a great eye for composition. Every time I visit his photostream I am blown away and inspired by his work. Lately I've been shooting a lot in B&W and frntprchprss' body of work has a lot to do with it. I'm glad I found him on Flickr.
