The Eye

“I am a camera with its shutter open, quite passive, recording, not thinking. Recording the man shaving at the window opposite, and the woman in the kimono washing her hair. Some day, all this will have to be developed, carefully printed, fixed.”

– Christopher Isherwood, Goodbye to Berlin

Child's Eye, Backstreets of Ho, Ghana

      1. Hey, thanks James. I am in Dorset. I wonder which interesting place you are visiting right now. It’s pretty inspiring to travel isn’t it. I wish blogging had been around when I travelled. It’s such a cool medium for touching the world with light…keep up beaming brother! P <3

  2. Quite beautiful James, what a wonderful plethora of images to see just before I go to sleep, should make for fabulous dreams!

  3. I love the pictures…There’s an ‘in your face’ honesty in them that makes them utterly, ruthlessly compelling so that it becomes hard to tear your gaze off them…Keep up the good work! 🙂

  4. Hi James, thanks for visiting my blog…and I’ve loved looking at your photos…there are some great ones there. The black and white ones are particularly atmospheric and moody.

    1. Thank you, Tricia. I really do have a passion for shape, form, colour, light. I think passion always comes through. Good luck with your own photography! Keep on dreaming and aspiring. Thanks. J x.
