My photographs are about city walks and scenes in my surroundings that delight me. Philadelphia is a dynamic city with many small parks and other pockets of nature tucked away in the urban landscape. It is rich with history, culture, art, architecture, sculpture, and gardens. I am drawn to the play of light over surfaces, intrigued by the shadow world, surface reflections, and what is below the surface – mystery and the unknown. Each photograph is an abstraction and creates a mood unlike the original scene.
