Lust for Life

LIfe and love in [...]

Out on the Edge of Nowhere

But the road is dark. Fear will be your constant companion; uncertainty the jacket you wrap yourself in to protect against the night. I’ve come to live with these things, to accept, if not love, the feelings I get when I board a plane or train or boat destined for a foreign land armed only with the hope that if everything goes right I might have a chance. Of course often the best laid plans do often go astray. You find yourself off the map, not quite where dragons lie but close [...]

Remembering Mark

My good friend Mark Ferguson died a year ago and in many ways I am still coming to terms with the loss. When you’re young you just assume that everyone around you will always be there. Mark was a teacher and then friend whose kindness and generosity has [...]

New Images from Brittany

To that end I make my images available (both to myself and others) when I damn well feel like it. The nice thing about not having a deadline is that you don’t have to rush; you can reflect, relax and actually [...]
