Cold steel and sharp edges, but oh, what curves!… :-)

My grandfather was a serious amateur photographer in the ’20s and ’30s, leaving me a legacy of stereoscopic pictures and equipment. The bug passed through the genes to my father and to me. I started taking pictures seriously when I was 11 and I spent most of my teenage years in and out of the darkroom. University, work and kids put photography on pause but my first digital camera in 2006 re-kindled my interest. RB has given me a vehicle for sharing my work and for learning so much.

    Beautiful texture and gorgeous lighting, George! Makes a rich low key abstract!

  • Thank you very much Johanne, light was a combination of daylight and artificial, which ended up working well giving it this dual tone :-)
