My favourite artist, Vincent Van Gogh once said “the way to know life is to love many things” and I hope those words are reflected in my photography.

Thanks for visiting and I hope some of my work resonates with you or inspires you as I am by other photographers’ amazing work here. Please feel free to explore and leave any comments.

    You have some excellent mementos of your trip to Victoria, Jill! These two work very well in B&W.

  • Many thanks Bette, the skies were grey most of the time so I thought B&W was the way to go, it worked well with the five minute exposure I thought. Cheers
