Paris and the unknown.

15th January 2014
As the New Year starts I find myself preparing to travel again. I'm no stranger to airports or hotel rooms, forever seeking new images and wanting to capture the places that inspire and lend drama to my photography. On this occasion it's Paris and no doubt you're now thinking The Eiffel Tower? I'd have to confirm those initial thoughts, let’s face it, could anybody go to this vibrant capital city and not want to capture the iron lady?

My plans go further- I want to capture a little bit more than that. I'm aiming for something different, I'm interested in capturing life, street photography and with any luck some street art. Winter is all the more ideal for this. I might get dramatic clouds or rain, but at the very least the crowds will be less. On many occasions I've failed in capturing anything on my various trips, despite these failures the excitement of challenge still looms. The thing is, it’s all part of the joy. You take the weather, crowds and light into consideration and what you have is a melting pot of things that can go wrong. Any images that I get will be a triumph because unlike studio work, none of the aforementioned can be controlled by me, the only thing that I can do is interpret my surroundings and try to see an artistic moment or thought provoking scene. That's what I love about travel photography, as Forest Gump would say “ it’s like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're going to get.”

Wish me luck.... “Paris through my eyes” 11th February to the 16th February.

The image below was the result of a very difficult hike, on a very difficult day and in freezing conditions. Was it worth? Yes.I was looking for something different and this is it.

“Isn’t that wonderful? That feeling of not knowing too much about something… Incomplete information… Endless possibilities… When you don’t know much about something, it’s the most exciting sensation.
