I’ve termed a section of this blog Moments. Essentially an ongoing collection of pictures I have taken whilst visiting places along with other things that have sparked a thought.
Its worth noting, I don’t profess to be a good photographer (or even an average one), but I have always gained enjoyment from Photography in general.
Having studied Photography briefly (before realising there was more to it than just taking nice pictures) I always liked the work of Lewis Hine and Ansel Adams. Hine’s Empire State Building photos are iconic. If you aren’t as familiar with Adams – I urge you to check out his work.
His focus on black and white landscape pictures makes him a personal favourite of mine.
Whilst enjoying photography, I’m not particularly keen on having my own picture taken. I’ve never really got into the whole ‘Selfie’ thing and find the concept a bit awkward and narcissistic at times (exceptions are selfies with animals). I enjoy looking at pictures and seeing how people capture different moments in time – but for me personally, adding my big head into the picture only seems to ruin it.
“I hope that my work will encourage self expression in others and stimulate the search for beauty and creative excitement in the great world around us.”
