Industrial Decay/01 The picture was taken during one of the many walks in Cesis that I took every day. I discovered this beautiful color composition that shows the decay just outside, randomly. A good friend of mine who is a painter told me it was like a painting for him. For me this one photo […]
Upwards Spirals, an expression of my recurring thoughts. Thoughts that always revolve around the same things. What’s next?
Double Negative The novelty of a picture usually turns on the interaction of the things pictured. Objects, people, and places are evocative to the viewer.
