Somewhere in the middle of everything.

Maelstrom? Tornado?

Nah more likely to be in the middle of a dream about a dream than anything else.

Going to put this out there.  A bit of me and why I form the images and words that I do ... and maybe that will assist with an understanding of why my shots are formed (in some cases) the way they are. Part of a reply (to this photo when it got declined due to opinion only and I totally respect that) that I will put here in way of giving some insight into ... well ... me.

When I find something of interest it will never be what is assumed ... this is me and you can see it through many of my shots and almost every single one of my poems :) )

In the case of photography the story and shot are as I see that tiny pinpoint of light in this wonderfully imaged world (again the artist and the perceptions conveyed should put something else in the eye rather than what people think should be there ... this is my opinion ... and definitely my art form to the mediums I play within).  Those that read my poetry will definitely know this (hard to hide things to those that do read it ... perceptive bunch that you are ;) )

I can do the pretty, probably the more technically correct ... but my art, my focus is more than a little left of centre ...

Hope that explains some things in regards to the photo's and writing that I create.
