I came here to learn. So if people want to assist me, by their comments, in terms of helping me towards producing something that has an impact, then that is fine with me. I just want to learn to SEE. If I could create some works with a painter's hand and a poet's eye, I would be satisfied.

I use Flickr like a sketch book; I put all sorts in here. So the the juxtapositions are often strange and sometimes there is flow. Some ideas just appear once other times I pick and run with one and a series comes out.

I want to thank everyone who has commented on my images so far. They have all helped in terms of reflective practice. Any comment is better than none, but make it with some grace and dignity.

"But as for certain truth, no man has known it
Nor will he know it; neither of the gods,
Nor yet of all the things of which I speak.
And if by chance he were to utter
The final truth, he would himself not know it:
For all is but a woven web of guesses."
- Xenophanes
