The thrill of taking a photo that makes me smile is what I aim for and if someone else appreciates it my day is made.
I shoot a variety of subjects and my camera comes with me wherever I go.

Through it the light seems brighter expos…
Dark, gleaming and polished like a freshly hatched conker; adorned like a Faberge jewel with solid but stunning metal work – the door opened. White clean light drenched and blinded us. We enter literally another world. I am tired so all feelings now are of extremes. / Although stoic until now I realise truly we have arrived. My limbs grow lead like – movement hurts, my eyes squinting …
To fight against this flow would have been impossible; we swept along the raging torrent of aggressive tired and all knowledgeable Friday evening Marrakech traffic. Our car the focus of aggression and yet our saviour protecting us from the manic panic outside. We swirled around a central island like those visiting Mecca and the Masjid al-Haram. Like a pebble trapped in a whirlpool we started agai…
After the highs of Erg Chebbi, dread filled my stomach. I forced down what was yesterday a delightful breakfast and contemplated at least the next twelve hours. / Er Foud behind us we travelled on. The sun, which we had so recently see disappear the day before which such beauty, exploded over the horizon adding to our perceived worries about such a journey. Eyes, now narrow slits, raise my cheeks…
