Tell us about one of your images. How and where you shot it, time of day, anything that inspired you to get this shot. Is there a story you could share ?
Woman On Bike - I'm a massive fan of street photography & during lockdown level 3, I was walking around when I spotted this lone woman on her bicycle at the Napier Pier. What was she thinking? Who was she thinking of? Did she remember a loved one who had passed? I had to capture that moment because, to me, it would make an excellent Black & white image.

Photographs are part of our legacy. They allow us to share, to communicate & has the power to move us.
