black & white sunday: natural


There are pauses between the showers of the outer world,

But there is no time when my sleeves, wet with tears, are dry.

thursday’s special: street photography/portraits

Relationships nourish the soul… often while I am out and about my imagination drifts away from the present as I begin to silently story the lives of others.  These two street images offer multiple stories about the dynamics of human interaction…with self, with others, with technology.


A dad with his son…playing ball?  Yet, while he is silently watching his son pick up the ball, there something about his stance that has me wonder if his mind is elsewhere.street

A solitary figure…waiting to meet someone while texting another or texting the one he is waiting for?
