This image is from the series, “à pied.” I walk a less conventional path. Exploration liberated by foot affords a unique opportunity to discover visual abstractions or quietly bear witness to the energy of daily life. Walking about, camera in hand, I find peace and rejuvenate. I revel in the surprise of finding beauty in unexpected places. Naturally drawn to geometric shapes that present a sense of power and symmetry, I find that architectural lines, graffiti, and light create strong graphical expressions of the ordinary and extraordinary.
