Last year, I picked up a Horizont KMZ Panoramic camera and it quickly became a favorite to use but unfortunately that camera was dropped last summer and in need of repairs. I have been looking for someone who can work on the camera but often the parts to repair it are not available. This camera…Read More

Today, this morning, I am looking out my window watching the distant sun rise and thinking about my journey as I watch the building across from me and the lights slowly turn on, one after another, as people begin to wake to their own day and whatever realities they face in this new and unusual…Read More
Monday, March 16. 8:45am to 11:50 am This is what the city of Warsaw looks like during lockdown. Taking precaution this morning, I decided to walk to the Stare Miasto and back from Ochota (about 11 km rondtrip). During the walk I observed a city normally bustling and crowded with activity of all types empty…Read More
Arbitrary Rendezvous in 2019
2019 was an interesting year for me. It was a year of reconciliation and at the same time lots of personal growth. It was a year when I learned to lean on others and ask for help as well as rekindle relationships that had fallen to the side. There were new friends that came into…Read More
The Art of Our Surroundings
Simplicity and simple situations that makes me stop and look again often make up my own versions of art.

Enjoy the ride. I do.
Auschwitz-Birkenau. My shadow has grown a bit darker.
A thousand feelings and memories came to my mind at the entrance of the Auschwitz memorial and museum. A lifetime of books, films, articles and conversations referencing the holocaust and the atrocities that were carried out, but not one single thing or any of my life experiences could prepare me for the horror and tangible feel of being at the site and how it would ultimately change my perception once leaving.Read More
A little luck and good fortune goes a long ways.
Earlier in August, my Nikon FM2 broke…again. Same issue as last time, the rewind stem came undone. Luckily (again) it happened just after I rewound the film, so some very good fortune there. Riding with luck on my side, I found a repairman dedicated to cameras in a way I had not witnessed before and…Read More
