House with a Pink Kitchen

I love photographing these old abandoned houses. They exude so much character. Unfortunately this character comes with a price. Many of these derelict structures are unsafe to enter, so I must resist the temptation to obtain a better angle and photograph their interiors from broken […]

Coppen Road Bridge 2015

When I photographed the Coppen Bridge in 2014 during my annual visit home, the skies were filled with a smoky haze, which gave the atmosphere a gauzy effect. This year, there was one night which was clear, so my niece and I raced out at […]
