Welcome to my travel / art

site

As powerful as they are, photographs alone cannot capture the feel of the sun’s radiant warmth against a chill wind, the smells of a market, the sounds of a street, or historical context. Prose and poetry can convey these and add dimensions of personal experience and perceptions impossible to portray in a two dimensional image. Travelogues The travelogues on this site present a combination of photographs, digital art, and text describing my experiences while travelling. They are not meant to be read in a single sitting, or even in sequence, rather they are meant to be browsed as and when time and interest allow. Slideshows The slideshows are a more traditional presentation of captioned photos. The UK and Ireland pages also have a button to display a brief anecdote from our daily journal. As with the travelogues, the slide shows are meant to be browsed rather than viewed in single sitting. Poems I find that the enforced meter and rhythm of structured poetry better expresses my feelings than does the simple prose of my travelogues.
Photo-art I often find that black and white images convey mood more effectively than colour and that photographic detail encourages literal rather than allegoric interpretation. These pages present my experiments in the abstraction and generalization of photographic images.
