The Journey Begins

Welcome! Come in, look around, I hope you see something that you like.

Some days I call myself a photographer but the truth of it is I’m just the owner of some magic boxes, memory machines, if you like. I decide where to place the box, what it should be looking at, which buttons to push, the dials to turn and press the magic button. Viola, a tiny bit of light is turned into a memory. But something more than light is captured in these memory machines, little bits of ourselves and our stories are captured and frozen in them as well.

The idea for this blog came about as I was looking at cloud storage for some of my photos and pondering my general dissatisfaction with most photo sharing platforms. I don’t want to share my photos just for likes or to lose them amongst the millions of photos posted on a daily basis. Nor do I want Google algorithms mining them for useful data.

I want to share the thoughts and the memories that were captured in these photos and if I have been successful, you, the reader, will be able to see and feel something of the moment. So some of my photos will be released into the wild to live and breath. If someone else finds enjoyment or thought in one them their purpose will be fulfilled.

Thank you for joining me on the journey.
