The London Eye

Four points Cadiz

Four Points Cadiz

Cadiz is a city and port in the Iberian Peninsula in Spain. The centre of the city is filled with old alleys and narrow streets. Here’s I shot straight upwards at the junction of 4 such alleys, I think it was here near the local cathedral. Many years ago I took a similar photo of […]

Culhan(e)

Mannix and Culhane on Washington Street occupies a low single storey building on the corner with North Main Street. Did they lose the top floors of their building a few years ago?

so many people pass me by

Footsteps in the sand speak of many people passing this way. Shot at Garrettstown Beach in October 2006. A very different shot to my previous Footprints in the sand. Remember a few weeks ago I explained how I backed up my photos? Good thing I have backups as my first external drive has possibly died. […]
