Derelict London.com

Derelict London.com I think I share similar motivation with my Wandering In Fairbanks web sites. I love to explore and document the vanishing everyday things that we experience. Margaret and I spent 10 days in London a few years ago, it was a great place to explore.

Key Thoughts and The Zen of Fishing

sm-07-07: "Key Thoughts and The Zen of Fishing"
I also think photography is like wildlife watching, being prepared for the random event. I carry a camera with me whenever I leave the house, I "kid" that the moment that I do not have the camera a space ship will land with aliens! I will even go back into the house and get a camera if I forgot to bring it with me. I want to be prepared for the random event or the unexpected moment. Like fishing or wildlife viewing the process is fun in itself, wandering outside, waiting, listening, returning to the same place again, looking for evidence, the process is fun and valuable even if I do not see any wildlife. Sometimes I feel like I have to earn the right to see an animal, sometimes it seems like I have been granted a gift, but I must be available for the gift.
