Hello Everyone!  

I know - been away for an age.  I really do have to get myself sorted out and back on track again.  

I took this at Mayburugh Henge near Penrith in Cumbria back at the start of the year - I was looking for answers in the stones, why life was being so difficult and challenging... almost to the point of asking the ancestors - or anyone - for help.  Less than a fortnight later my Mum finally lost her long fight with cancer, and everything went dark.

This photograph, I think, captures that feeling of loss and despair which was to come as no real surprise with hindsight, and I like that about it.  It was taken with an Olympus OM-D E-M5 and 9-18mm zoom lens at 9mm (equivalent to 18mm on full frame), hand held (upside down and triggered with my thumb).

This young couple was on the ferry between Sydney, Vancouver Island, BC and Anacortes, Washington. After taking some pictures of them without their knowledge, I showed them and offered to send them copies. They were so grateful. This was a last vacation for them before moving off to Europe to do research at an institute in Germany.

I was hired to photograph an Indian teenager's 16th birthday party. What an amazing experience. Lots of fun. Lots of dancing. Amazing food.

On a recent trip to Mumbai, I visited the area made "aware" in the Slumdog Millionaire movie.   Here is a little boy in a single room place looking out with a nice warm smile.

I took this photo this morning at the Caroline County (Maryland) Threshermen's Show.  I asked these young men for permission before I took their picture since they are either Mennonite's or Amish, and I didn't want to offend them.  What do you think of the way that I rendered this image as an old sepia-toned photo?  I have the original color photo, a black & white version, and a "clean" sepia version.  The Threshermen's Show features many new, old, and antique tractors and other farm equipment, especially the old steam driven types of vehicles and machinery.

Debus is an art from Banten, Indonesia related to the science of invulnerability and reflects the attitude of resistance typical in Banten culture. It is a form of invulnerability to sharp objects; a supernatural force that provides resistance to sharp objects, beatings and burns.

this incredible bit of art celebrating Nelson Mandela is found outside Lions River in SA, commemorating the spot he was captured in. It is a series of Steel poles all slightly different shape and height, which, when viewed from one particular angle and elevation show Madibas face... the artist really thought out of the box here..

I'm currently taking a short, six-week adult continuing education photography course called Beyond Digital.  This week's assignment was to take photographs of people who are framed by windows, doors, or other elements in the photo.  I shot this photo this past Saturday during the annual Oxford Day parade in Oxford, MD.  I was attempting to use shallow depth-of-field to isolate this boy from his surrounding band members, so that the blurred foreground figures would serve as the framing device.  I think his horn also works to help frame his face.  It was just luck that I took the photo while the boy's cheeks were puffed up.

This man was taken from the hip as I walked by in central Mumbai and he happened to look towards me.  I did a Silver Efx Pro Pinhole filter to give it this effect and kept the slanted view as I liked it.  Tried some cropping, etc....but ended up liking it this way.
