My new pad

So here’s my fancy new micro pad. After 31 years in the same house I finally sold and have migrated to a downtown apartment. It’s only 330 sq/ft but so far i’m totally comfortable here. It also has a nice … Continue reading

Human Backpack

I shot this about 10 days back and in doing so broke one of my personal rules (as opposed to one of the rules of composition). That is, don’t shoot people from behind without a very good reason. Why not, … Continue reading

I wanna hold your hand
