    if i took photos on my tea break all you would see are small planes flying overhead and lots of factories.

  • that sounds like a lot of scope for some interesting industrial b/w shots ;) This was on a 12 hour day of delivering, so I make this my number one spot to have a break

    while studing photography i wondered at some artists who took so many photos of society and the world they lived in or could travel to, I wondered at their mindset and wondered if they ever knew how important their images would be in the future. I guess now with digital cameras any man and his dog can do it, but your work surpasses ‘any man and his dog’, and i would love to be alive in 100 years and see what the future holds for your art, your view, your perspectives. wow.

  • Thank you for such a beautiful comment Tempe

    Another glorious train shot… as for the chimp, well, yes. As for the huff, it puts me in mind of a great quote I heard once, & it could apply to this… ‘…that morning a huff came along & he went off in it….’

  • lol wonderful words
