Photograph of an empty alley way.

Night glow

Photos of night time scenes can be surprisingly colourful. With everything being so devoid of light, the little snatches of colour that appear feel more amplified. The street lamps on this empty alley in Malaga cast such a beautiful orange colour on the more reflective […]

Photograph of three colourful buildings. One yellow, another pink, and another white. Taken in Beirut, Lebnon.

All the colours of the rainbow

Closing out this week of photos with another from Beirut. Can anyone else tell me where you’d see a scene like this—a yellow, pink, and white building, all in completely different styles. With one having actual palm trees growing in the balconies. The palm tree-adorned […]

Photograph of a group of different types of buildings in Boston

This is real

This photograph does not look real. Every time I see it, there’s something about it that looks completely artificial. These types of buildings shouldn’t be mixed together like this, should they? I absolutely love walking around this part of Boston for this reason. The mish […]

Photograph of a group of apartment buildings in Beirut

Will I ever see this Beirut again?

February, 2019, I spent a scant 4 days in Beirut. But they left an indelible mark on me. The same cliched reason that most people give when they travel to any place—the people, the food, the culture—but beyond that it was also the look and […]

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 […]

Sunset in a mining town

Clifton, Arizona. A tiny little town with a population of around 3,700. Just a stop along the way—or more accurately—the start of a fun “little” drive. An interesting, and dare I say it, eye-opening town for this Brit who’s really not seen a lot of […]

Photograph of the beach at sunset, look towards the ocean.

Not the sunset I was after

Taken in August, 2019 at Huntington Beach in California. I was waiting for the sunset shot. Something dramatic to appear in the sky. But as the sunset, the clouds moved in and the interesting sort of just fizzled out. Just another occasion on a long […]
