The selection of the roof of the Sagrada Família makes a representation of a monster face
I was drawn to this image because the rock looked like wood. It was taken in New Zealand on the way to Tasmin Island.

Section of the Sagrada Família roof while it was still being built.
Taken in Barcelona, a homeless man was asleep on a park bench. His hands to me told the story of the life this man was leading. He woke up immediately after I shot the picture, so I asked him if it was okay for me to use it. He looked at it on the back of my camera and just started crying. I told him I would delete it but he said it was okay, he just thought it was a great picture. I gave him some euros and told him I hoped he could get a good meal. We parted company, but he remains in my thoughts every day I see a homeless person in the street.
The wildness of the ocean is enthralling. I was fascinated by the seagull that flew through the spray of the waves, at times only a few inches above the violence.
As the sun was going down in the background its light highlighted the feathers of its splayed wings. There is something about Swans that just take your breath away their lines are so graceful and regal. I find it amazing that they can keep themselves so clean.
While staying in Lucca a little walled city in Italy, the rain had come down the night before. I decided to get out at sunrise to see if there were any sights I could photograph that might not have been taken by other photographers. As I entered the piazza of San Michele in Foro I found this image.
I had the idea of creating images that represented the signs of the Zodiac. I used the mirror image to make a crab-like picture to represent the sign of Cancer.
My art expresses what my inner eye perceives at the time I press the shutter or touch brush to paper. Creativity is an extension of the mind, artwork the manifestation.
Perceive what you will when contemplating my art, it is here to broaden your experience and bring us closer for a moment in time.
I am a lover of life and a documenter of its passing.
