    The Face of Cancer

    Several months back, one of my dearest friends found out she had one of the most aggressive breast cancers a woman can get, Triple Negative. She's a trooper and has managed a positive outlook. I have yet to see her down, though I know there is a great deal of fear trembling within her. If there...

    I shot this man a couple of months ago and now while reviewing some shots I have worked on this one. He was inside a mill where we bought flour to make our own bread

    Ken & Earnest

    At a favourite restaurant. “The Madhouse” is a former bank known for images of mad folk, a good selection of beer, and the widest range of whisky in town. My good friend Ken poses alongside Earnest. Note the similarity despite differences in age. Cheers, Mike

    Art Appreciation 101

    “One's assessment of an object must be free and unhampered, with nothing between you and the object. You must look directly at it. To decide that a particular piece must be valuable because it is by a particular artist is weak and demeaning. Your assessment only gains meaning when you look at...

    Never let your wife wash your hat. It’s been my constant companion for 12 years and never seen the inside of a washing machine. Only rain to rinse and sunlight to disinfect. It has seen my hair come and go; and stay gone. It has been sat on, shat on, eaten from, beaten with, written on, rose...

    My attempt at portraits

    Lars (my child) & I went out to take portraits. I have been trying to Dodge & Burn this image since we got home yesterday. I was hoping for overcasts sky but no luck.
