Enjoy the ride. I do.

Nothing but the echo of a perpetual past.

Just a few quick shots from earlier today. After the freak snowstorm yesterday, the warm sun left me feeling rejuvinated if not inspired….

Colorful Bounty

For me, spring is something of an interesting time of observation. I can tell that spring has arrived simply by looking up and admiring the potted flowers that seem to mysteriously arrive overnight.

How Street Photography helped me connect to living in Poland.

I will freely admit that I am deeply inspired of a deep love for Horror, Thriller, Mystery and the Fantastique both in fiction literature and in cinema. From my earliest years I was infatuated with monsters and creatures of the imagination.

I fell in love with writings of Lovecraft , Poe, Matheson, Bradbury, Stoker and from there finding a love for the writing of Stephen King, reading everything that I could get my hands on late into the night with rapt attention to every detail.

I needed to move fast and began picking up the pace and navigating the sidewalk.
