Photos within photos: a fascination. They are like a slice of time contained within a slice of time; a mirror reflected within a mirror. Like looking at a scene through a door framed within an open window. I came across this discarded portrait of an Australian soldier. It had been rescued from the city dump. I wonder where he ended up?

I see it is exactly one year since I started this blog. I’d like to thank all those readers and commentators who have made writing about this photographer’s life, so much fun in the past twelve months.
Now in my 68th year, I find that there is still a lot of life left in this particular photographer. I’m about to embark on a major project; probably my biggest assignment ever, photographing the subject of work. (See This Working Life). This should see me traversing almost the entire continent (Australia) over the next 12 months. I’m sure it’s going to provide many anecdotes and a load of good pictures.
I’ll tell you more when it gets under way…
Though I live on an island renowned for its scenic beauty, I’ve always found the built environment more inspiring than nature. You can take a boy out of the city, but you can’t take the city out of the boy, I guess. These are just a few of my favourite urban views from Sydney, New York, Penang, Hobart, Kuala Lumpur, Malacca and Amsterdam.
