    That’s great. How typical to walk by and not even notice. Good work!

  • Thanks for stopping by with your kind comment. Cheers :)

    This is meaningful! Are you trying to tell a story of happy and sad?

    I looked back at this image again and again…This simply tells a story of life. They are of high contrast. The left is clear and bright, the right is shadowed and blured, but yet, they are joined together on the ground, yet differ apart by a green tree…

  • This is one of the images from a project I am doing just because I am a little concerned about preservation. I call the project “A Preview Of History”, just a simple photo documentary of the ever changing cityscape showing both color and black and white versions. The black and white images is sort of like looking at a time gone by, as if these places no longer exist.

    If you know the song Big Yellow taxi by Joni Mitchell then you know what I mean…
