Mirrors and Reflections – #Frifotos

This was taken more than six years ago in Belgrade. I love the woman’s melancholy gaze breaking through the reflection of the clouds. It’s one of my all-time favorite shots, captured spontaneously while waiting for a red light to turn green.

A Thousand Fires in Your Belly

  When you come right down to it, all you have is yourself. Yourself is a sun with a thousand fires in your belly. The rest is nothing. I first came across that Picasso quote last August in a relatively quiet bridge underpass in Zurich. It was late morning but …

Shooting in the rain – A Zurich Dandy Dozen and a bit of Dada

September pic(k)s

September was brutal. Between the 1st and 26th I spent just four nights at home while bopping between eight countries across seven time zones. I’m still recovering. And I also took nearly a 1000 pictures. This one, of a woman enjoying a smoke break from the tedium of her job, …
