It is almost August and time to think, reflect and choose a summer photography course to push me and my camera to the next level. Last year, I went to London to take a short course at Central St Martins University of the Arts (arts.ac.uk/…/photography-ideas-and-practice) - an amazing experience! Here, for the first time in my [...]
We didn't quite finish cleaning out the cottage the last time we were on Long Island. So eagerly back we came, bringing the rocking chair with us as well. The weather had changed into a blustery day with a watery sun trying its best to break though the overcast sky. The Atlantic waves were rolling [...]
I was going through my photos tonight, trying to organize them into some kind of sensible chaos, when I came across a few from our last trip. There is no real "theme" to these images, except for the fact that I like the way that these 'visual experiments' turned out. Enjoy.....
Today is the last time that we can enjoy the beach; it is the end of an era. We have come to sort out and clean out the family cottage on Long Island. The evening is cold, rainy and stormy; the day has come to say good-bye. As the light disappears over the Atlantic, there [...]

The desert landscape is mistical and after while, it starts to really affect you as you travel through the sun. scrub and sand. [...]
One more from the secret gardener.....

A simple allotment garden, it fills itself each Spring and Summer with flowers and provides delicious fruit and vegetables for their table along with a satisfying sense of accomplishment. What makes it even lovelier, is to think of what it looked like several years ago when [...]
Jerusalem is in the middle of replacing its older bus shelters with a new modern design; complete with LED arrival boards and more comfortable benches. These new urban street furnishings are a welcome addition to a thriving city where the ancint meets the old, the old meets the new. But what do you do with [...]
One of the great delights in Switzerland is being able to take a cog railway up to the top of the mountains. Two hours out of the city and suddenly you are transported to a completely different world; one full of magic, breathtaking views and time to wonder....oh, and the strangest UFO-looking clouds I have [...]
