Frog said: “Humans need to help the wild animals and the wildlife, we need it! Help the wildlife in your garden or in your area. Don’t assume that wild animals would rather be left to take care of themselves, this is no longer the case. Things are beyond that now and in order to survive a lot of wild animals need a bit of support… so feed the wild animals who live around you, build a pond in your garden to support us… Humans have caused a lot of damage on wildlife and now we need humans help to undo what they’ve done. It’s important for our survival. More and more wild animals go close to human habitats to see if they can find help or just scavenge some food. We are on the decline, our habitats are fragile and we need help. Thank you for washing me and taking such good care of me.”
I’m not sure if I will be able to put all this into words… I chose the images above as a way to convey hope, a love for nature and the small things in life.
Our Time Here:
Even though nature is in a crisis, and huge transformations and changes need to happen,
Even if the governments seem to make a point of getting it all wrong,
Despite the fact that money and the interests of a few people seem to prevail,
Over the fate of the planet and the rest of her inhabitants…
I have hope.
Here is a recent photoshoot I did recently with young upcoming power lifter, Archie Reid. Archie is planning on beating the dead lifting world record in his age category soon and needed some pictures…
This morning I was up and about at 4:30am, thanks to my lovely cat Henry who likes to wake me up around that time because he wants me to open the door, so he can go back to sleep on/under the deck chair on our patio (weather depending that is). So I get up, like a good and obedient cat slave, open the back door and watch him settling down, literally 1 metre from the glass door. I bet he is purring too.
I tried to go back to sleep, but couldn’t as this is my usual insomnia time. I thought: this is a great opportunity to go out and find a spot to settle in with my camera and do some street photography.
I’ve been enjoying exploring new territories recently. It could be because Spring is only five days away, or perhaps it’s because change has been in the air here recently. I’m enjoying playing more, experimenting with lights and shadows, colours and textures….
Here are a few postcards for you: from me, from here, from now…
Childhood in the woods… Looking for sticks and dragons…
Sometimes beauty can be found in very unlikely places… Like a contaminated junk yard in South East London…
A walk around the ‘running around fields’.
Some time. Some family time.
~Trying to capture,
These fleeting moments:
Grains of sand, running through my fingers…
