Accidental tourist for sure. Planned serendipity always giving way to chance for the casual encounter with the local culture. Mostly trusting the good in people with a watchful eye for the dubious ones in attempts to making the world smaller, a bit less contentious with small gestures of human connection. It starts with a simple smile, a brief non-verbal exchange or one word attempts in the local tongue; building a temporary human connection of sharing, learning and perhaps leaving behind a small treasure of history called a photograph.
All with my recording companion by my side, I see and snap the typical while creating contemplative art around the local scene in attempts to capturing unique perspectives of people, culture and landscape.
Thanks for taking the time to read some of the posts. I hope you find them inspirational.
