As I’m walking the empty streets of Manchester, I’m looking for symbols of hope. Like hands shaking and people embracing once more, albeit we are watching through the looking glass. Our world is somewhat distorted at the moment, but there is light, even in the darkest of places. See the full album, Manchester of Light and Shadow on my facebook page.
On the last Saturday of May 2020 I went for a walk through empty Manchester. The streets were mostly empty due to the COVID 19 pandemic. A beautiful display of light and shadow emerged from the old and new buildings. This city is an eclectic and somewhat asymmetric mixture of style and modern living. Even this runaway mailbox has stickers on it. See the album Manchester of Light and Shadow on my facebook page.
Edinburgh Fringe 2017
I went camping for a weekend at the Edinburgh Fringe. Although it is the grandest arts festival in the world, I couldn’t help but feel overwhelmed. I often felt like this gentleman here…so many shows, so little time!
Coimbatore in Style
As one of our friends was driving us through Coimbatore, many sights impressed my camera. You definitely come to India to see the people, not the architecture, although the latter is not bad in places 🙂
This little girl was begging on the way to Haji Ali mosque, Bombay, India. It is a stark contrast between her lowered head and the grand city on the other side of the water.
Free and Beautiful
These lovely girls were playing outside a mosque in Bombay, India. They seem to have so little and yet their joy is so generous.
The Smiles of Brave Children
In Coimbatore, India, children would follow us on the streets so that we would take photos of them. Their smiles were very much worth every step of our journey.
