Blog 365

The cycles of the seasons is evident everywhere and is packaged into each  year with the passage of time.

This journal documents my best  images as well as memories of the past 12 months of capturing images of life and creation.

This journal is a perpetual rolling review  and images will be added and removed as time cycles ahead.

I hope you enjoy your visit.
