Black and white photos of dappled light across two indoor doors.

My favourite light

Ending out the week of black and white with a favourite of mine. And unlike all of the others—a phone photo. I don’t get a tonne of natural light in my apartment. But first thing in the morning, the light reflects off of our neighbours […]

Black and white photograph of an open courtyard looking up inside the Alcazar of Seville.

Symmetrical in Seville

This is the stunning Royal Alcázar of Seville. Just one very small part of it. The Moorish architecture was so beautiful, I may have spent the entire time I visited, just looking up. With it being winter day, it was an overcast day. No blue […]

Black and white photograph of a rural country road surrounded by trees.

Into the woods we go

In this week of black and white themed photos, I’ve bounced around a little bit from lots of texture, not so much texture, big natural landscape. And now I’m sharing an image that is in contrast to… well high contrast black and whites—low contrast black […]

Black and white photograph of Alcatraz from a boat.

Alcatraz, just visiting

It was such a lovely, bright sunny day when I visited Alcatraz. It betrayed how I felt visiting this a place with a dark history. History that I was very much clueless about. I took this photo as the boat was pulling away from the […]

Black and white photo of a person crossing a set of crossroads lined with palm trees on the right.

At the crossroads

Last week, I accidentally fell into a theme with the images I posted. Maybe it wasn’t an accident—maybe it was my subconcious’ way of selecting images I wanted to share. Taking a bit more control this week, and selecting a theme. Starting off easy, with […]

An accidental theme

Colours of winter

Summer is here. I’m staring down the barrel of a weekend of temperatures of 117F. This image is a nice reminder of winter and temperatures to look forward to. Taken at the Phoenix’s Desert Botanical Gardens just before sunset. That pre-sunset light just looks different […]
