I started taking photos a long time ago as a child with a hand me down old Kodak camera that took a 125 film cartridge. At first it was simply a means to record events, places and people, but now I find excitement in trekking, usually by bicycle, through cities, small towns, rural communities, abandon industrial sites and old buildings. I absorb the sights, sounds, smells and lighting of new places and try to capture their essence and communicate something of their majesty, mystery, memory, and drama.
For me photography is a way to share the excitement and beauty of the world and express my own unique view of it. It's an art and a powerful communicator.
