Big Man Little Fish

So endearing, this man. Despite being all hunky and handsome, I see the boy child within. He looks perplexed though, at having caught such a tiny fish.


And look, the picnic on the bank. Those cooler boxes are Colemans, recognisable by the white diamond-shaped logo. Thanks to his lady friend (imagined) who recorded this moment so lovingly.

Boys at the River

An African childhood, lived outdoors in nature, with friends. This is an inspiring image and an experience I am sure little boys all over the world long for. I love the little huddle, and the way they’re completely involved in their conversation –  unaware of the adult taking the photograph.

Moody Mississippi River

The moody Mississippi River photographed in Memphis, Tennessee 1959. Old car, set against gritty railway tracks, grey sky and murky water, its a not a pretty scene, but all the richer in atmosphere as a result.

Tone and texture is everything in this image. I smoothed the sky and roughed up the tracks. The car is in its original color.

Before and after. Click for big.
