This series centers on subjects that I have been drawn to since the beginning of my photography. The images are mainly of the human-made world and where, at times, it intersects with nature. They represent a wide variety of places and things that I find of interest during travels to many countries. I do not usually depict recognizable landmarks but rather the anonymous fragments of a place wherever I may find them, sometimes making note of the quirky objects that people leave on the earth. The work reflects themes such as design aesthetics, the effects of light in different environments and times of day, world religions and mythologies, manifestations of animals and other aspects of nature, and the beauty of the commonplace. I enjoy the whole process of discovery and strive to be open to all that I see, to chance and surprise, and to how I may eventually interpret a scene.
