Photo

 

A selection of photos taken from around the world.

I'm inspired by the contrast of light, composition and detail in the frame. I enjoy the often surprising juxtaposition of nature with man-made structures, whether it's a ethereal, informative, a story, or a frame powerfully contrasted with colour and light. Some of the most inspirational sources that feed my thinking are from photographs, architecture, travel and culture.
