Weekly Photo Challenge: Story

I love taking photographs. For me, it is my favorite way to interact with the world. Sometimes it is a challenge though, typically that challenge involves lighting or deciding on an angle to shoot from. In this case, though, it was the story behind the photo: This photo is from the interior of the Pinkas... Continue Reading →



When should you stand for your beliefs? Thomas Abel (or Abell) may have thought about this as he was in the Tower of London awaiting execution for being a heretic: I took this shot for a number of reasons. One is that I knew this week's challenge was forsaken, certainly, the Tower of London would provide... Continue Reading →
