Chatting on the Stairs
Canon A2, 50mm, f/8, 1/250s, ISO 125 (Ilford FP4+)
As I was walking around Trinity College on this gorgeous sunny day last June, I saw these students chatting and reading textbooks on the stairs of one of the buildings, and despite the somewhat unseemly garbage bin I decided to shoot. I’m glad I did, there’s an interesting imbalance in the symmetry of the shot that I find quite appealing.

This is one of my favourite shots from a roll I took in early July in London. This is film, more specifically Fuji Pro 400 color film. I rarely do color film, but I really like that particular film and love the results.
Shot just outside a flea market in Rome’s Trastevere. The man came accross as both sad and proud when I asked if I could take his photo.
I thought it would be interesting to process this shot full of modern elements with an old print look (enhance by the use of the Lensbaby). Hence the paradox.
Rome is a street photographer’s paradise! There’s always something going on. And the backdrops are magnificent too!
Soap bubbles fascinate me. Whenever I cross one those street artists in Paris making giant soap bubbles, I have to try for shots. This one is my favourite so far.
