There is a small family who lives near the cave where I live.  They are a father, his sister and bother, his wife and their two little girls.  Thy tend to the goats and live in the rocky mountain area.  I have been getting to know this family, spending time with them and photographing them. […]

Butcher Shop Window Display [Amman, Jordan]

We all know how much I love photographing butchers.  I found this window display in downtown Amman and just couldn’t get enough of it.  I just love each one of their expressions and how they are all just stare right at you making these crazy faces.

Bridge of Fishermen [Istanbul, Turkey]

It seems to me that if there is a bridge in Istanbul, it is full of people fishing for the smallest (or largest, if you are lucky) fish.  From far away it looks as if it were an event, a group of people looking over the river at perhaps a large boat or just to […]
