Photography, psychology and pictures
I’m here again, Sunday morning and I’m sharing my innermost thoughts with you once again. I used to write my Sunday ramble while my lunch was cooking. This morning my breakfast hasn’t gone down yet. I only wrote a short post yesterday because I had a busy day. I have a photo shoot this morning too and this one is even earlier.

We were paying tribute to local alderman Bill Archer. Bill was a Conservative councillor but at events like this you don’t think about politics, you think about people. People might be politically naive (in your view or my view) but they support and champion what they believe in and if they do it with some passion, we should respect that.
Not many people know that I’m really into psychology and suggestion and I’m acutely aware that my pictures carry a message and tell a story.
