Symmetry

I was looking through my photos from Madrid a couple days ago and found the image above. When I originally saw this image last year I thought "meh" nothing special or important. But for some reason it's catching my eye now. Maybe it's the off center Symmetry of the wall with the signs mirrored on both sides. I can't seem to put my finger on it exactly but I like it now. Feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments. Madrid, Spain (July, 2013) Leica M6 + Leica Summicron 50mm f/2 + Kodak T-Max 400…

Urban Practice

One day on my way to the train I saw this guy practicing outside the TD Centre building in the late evening. I was floored with what he could do on his bike. I snapped a few pictures and stood around to watch. I was expecting security to run out and chase him away but oddly they were standing inside watching with the same amazed look I had on my face.

One of the weekends I was wandering around the city I stumbled upon a protest near the city center.

Goodbye Tumblr

I'm done with Tumblr. I've been slowly purging social networks. In the past I've gotten rid of Facebook, Eyeem, and others I've already forgotten about. A few days ago I purged Tumblr. Honestly what was the point of it for me? I was just reposting what I was posting here. For what a duplicate of my site? Nah. I'm down to 2 social networks. Twitter were I'll dump links to posts and respond to peoples questions about film and my work. Instagram where I'll post random photos from traveling and some work, and the only other "Social Network" I've signed…
