A simple Lily in the dark. Although darkness and sadness approaches it along all sides, it still burns brightly. It’s life force will never be extinguished… is as beautiful now at the end as it was at the beginning. I dedicate this to the memory of my mother Irene.

The major portion of my photography attempts to capture the Abstract within Nature and man-made structures. I seek to find beauty in entities that most overlook in their daily lives.
