Fishing in the Ice

A lonely fisherman out crouched over his fishing hole in the ice on Lake Ternopil today. Cold, snowing and grey made for a striking image. This week in my photo challenge with @strebor844 our theme is ‘Something Large’ I decided that this works and the lake and white openess is about as large as I…

The Girl In The Red Jacket

Another beautiful winters day in the city of Ternopil. Sometimes, things just stand out in a scene and need to be photographed. As I was walking through town this morning, the beautiful bright red jacket was precisely one of those moments. I hope it stops you and compels you to look just a little bit…

A Personal Favorite

Still one of my favorite images! I have really loved getting to photograph the people in the DR Congo.
