    For largest display, click on the individual photograph In the last year or so I have started experimenting with methods to produce abstract images, some of which lose their photographic identity and cross over into graphic design like the one above.

  2. PUTTING MY FEET UP

    2023-12-13 13:14:49 UTC
    For me, 2023 was a year of travel, and for the most part, except flying, I enjoyed all of it, even the rainy days. I won’t deny that at times it was tiring when 20 years ago that was never the case, make of that what you will.  Now it…
