I love shooting moonrises just as they peak their head over the horizon, especially if I can get a tree nearby to give a sense of scale. The moon is still catching the last warm light rays of the setting sun, thus explaining its warmish cast. The size of the moon always looks big on the horizon as we have scale and depth clues available from the surrounding terrain thus creating an illusion of size.
God is merciful...this child probably has no idea that there is a life outside of her poverty ridden existence. No wonder she gifted me such a lovely, sweet smile! Can there be anything more generous? Such honor, such courage! She taught me something I shall always remember.

I love to be there, whatever the season.
Writing, reading, sharing and dreaming by my fav canal in town. Feeling the air and the light changes.
Observing boats and seagulls, swans, sparrows and passers-by (another kind of bird). Along that river bank of the north-east of Paris my Nikon & I enjoy a lot.
A guard tower in the Eastern Sierra? What is this about? The answer gives us a look into one of the darker chapters of American history. This is Manzanar National Historic Site located between Lone Pine and Independence, California, USA. During World War II, Americans of Japanese ancestry and Japanese who were denied citizenship by federal law were interned here and in nine other camps across the country. This was facilitated by President Franklin D Roosevelt signing Executive Order 9066 on February 19, 1942. The order authorized the US military to exclude and detain US citizens and resident aliens. In practice this applied to individual German and Italian aliens and all persons of Japanese ancestry living on the West Coast.
I've known about this violation of Constitutional rights for decades but only recently learned of this historic site. I had to see it and see if it has any relevance to current events. I think it's important that we learn from our past instead of repeating it.
The double rainbow appeared after the infamous tornadic storm moved through Battlefield, Missouri from Joplin, Missouri on May 22, 2011. The photo was taken on Cloverdale Street, the neighborhood that was destroyed 8 years prior from a tornado.
My favorite of the kind. When I was creating it, everything came so easily as it really means something to me, this house in the sky, this garden as well. It looks unusual and however it remains very familiar, a cool environment where friends would like to meet.
Le ciel tombe sur la tête de Camille Levast, capitaine de l'équipe du CSBJ en Rugby.
Et pas seulement au sens propre car le match s'est déroulé dans des conditions dantesques, mais également au figuré, puisque la photo a été prise au coup de sifflet final d'une quatrième défaite d'affilé et surtout deuxième à domicile.
A few days ago I found a dead butterfly in my garden (usually I don't photograph dead insects) and I was impressed by the beauty of the drawings and the "eyes"on its wings. I took the wings and began placing them together in different ways and suddenly I noticed this fabulous face in them ... Of course, I had to photograph it and share it with all of you ...
To some, this is one last remaining "old streets"; to others, it's where they just come for foods, traditional or trendy;
To some, it's a fascinating mix of cultures; to others it's the invasion of the old living by some pretentious bourgeois...
To me, it's a street I have to pass by at least once a week but my photographing of it never seems to be finished.:-)
From a set of B&W negs that I shot in Karachi in Pakistan in 1990's. Although most were scratched or covered in dust, I had a go at scanning a few (after I processed them 18 yrs ago, I never got round to looking through them or printing any). It was amazing to see these long neglected images come to life on the screen, temporarily forgotten for all those years. I remember that I bought the film stock in Karachi, and that it was 35mm film manufactered in what was then East Germany.
The thanaka is a white-yellow cosmetic dough of vegetable origin usually used in Burma to cover the face and sometimes the arms of the women & sometimes men. It is produced from the wood of several trees growing in abundance in central Burma and known collectively " as trees of thanaka ". The cream is applied to the face in simple motives, the most common being a record on every cheek, sometimes strips or the shape of a leaf. Besides its cosmetic function, the thanaka gets redreshing sensation,
I think it is very important to know about Violence against women is a human rights violation. That's all.
Continuing with the lovely morning at Lake Tekapo in New Zealand back in the Spring of 2013...
a bonus at that time was that the beautiful lupines just started to bloom and provided colours that complimented the dawn mood and light very nicely... not all of them were blooming just yet and i needed to walk around to find a composition that would work for me...
i hope you like the result...
Toujours compliqué de trouver une 1ère photo quand on revient de voyage... Ce ciel quasi biblique m'a semblé un beau symbole en introduction à ce magnifique pays aux nombreux lieux chargés d'histoire. Et quelle histoire !
C'est en autre à travers cet univers rocailleux mais superbement désertique que Moïse conduisit son peuple vers la Terre Promise... Mais interdit d'accès, il mourrut après l'avoir embrassée du regard du sommet du mont Nébo où se trouve aujourd'hui les vestiges de
Parce que cette image évoque au moins 2 de mes émotions favorites : l'enfance (via mes nièces) & la forêt (près de laquelle j'ai grandi). J'appelle ce sentiment vivifiant gorgé de sève : ChildWood ;)

From the sculptor Daniel Lawrence, "This piece embodies that we are primarily vessels, containers of life that express life by means of three distinct capacities; the ability to know, the ability to love, and the ability to desire. Knowledge, Care and Technology obviously fit right over this model of human self."
Karlskirche (St. Charles's Church) is a baroque church located on the south side of Karlsplatz in Vienna, Austria...
i spent one evening there, sitting around the pond and taking quite a few shots... i was lucky enough for people to leave the water quite undisturbed so the reflections came through very still - like a mirror...
When i went to Europe last year, i had a few pre-conceived ideas for photos and capturing the Belchatow Power Station in Poland at night was one on that list...
Having been there a few years earlier, i had a strong image in my mind of the chimneys belching out smoke into to air and i wanted to use a long exposure to catch that movement... an added bonus is the fact that this power station is situation right over an open-pit coal mine, which provided other interesting elements for this composi
Robber flies are wonderful hunting flies whose eyesight ensures they eat (they don't know how to build supermarkets yet) Instead it's other flies and spiders on the menu.
About those eyes: They are compound eyes. Instead of one lens they see through two spheres with many lenses. Each lens of the compound eye sees its own image, so what the fly sees is like a mosaic. The more lenses, the higher the resolution. The two large spherical eyes of a fly provide an almost complete 360 degree vision.
I was lucky enough to get a full days photography last Saturday with John Leech and Mike Spriggs and we ended up at the lighthouse at the Point of Ayr in north Wales at dusk.
There were quite a few photographers there but the anticipated sunset never really materialised and everyone but John and I had left the beach as night fell. I'm glad we didn't leave with the others as 'out of the blue' we were lucky enough to witness the most amazing moonrise that either of us has ever seen.
Iceland excels at waterfalls. The good ones are so good that you end up driving past ones which you'd stop and study for days if they were back here in England. Skogarfoss is my favourite of the ones we saw, and its clear to see why it features on so many advertisements for the country, its proportions are perfect. Two photographers were already in position when the three of us arrived and several other appeared before we moved on.
Elle est ma muse, mon modèle favori. Chaque instant photographié avec ma plume d'amour reste un moment de beauté pur sans artifice. Juste écrire visuellement toute l'admiration que j'ai pour son naturel derrière mon troisième oeil!
It is my muse, my favorite model. Every moment photographed with my feather of love stays a pure moment of beauty without subtlety. Just write visually all the admiration which I have for its nature behind my third
