Sometimes I just like to take photos of the people and scenes I pass
and wonder at the beauty, the pain, the joy and fragility of life.
These things connect us, our sameness and our differences.

I try to remind myself of that often :)

A treat to watch your pictures and read about humanity. Yes, we are all humans, every single soul!!! Much warmth to you on mother´s day.

I love seeing an artist's work on canvas, but sometimes seeing pictures gives insight into how they view the world. Thanks for sharing this perspective with us. They are lovely.

Happy mother's day to you too Tracy. I share the same interest in the fabric of lives entwined in a united humanity. I particularly love love love the pic of the girls with the umbrella in front of your painting. I think I've said it before elsewhere, but I would love to see you paint that image! It's just beautiful. Xx

Your "people" photos are lovely...I need to start practicing more with photos that have humans in them! Have a wonderful Mother's Day - your daughters are beautiful. :)

Tracy, these photos are stunning. They are raw, they are real and utterly meaningful. The first one is by far my favorite. The photo of the artist in Thailand is also amazing. Some amazing places you have been to.

Everyone loves it whenever people come together and share views on your pictures. Great website, keep it up! Though, I was wondering if you could suggest me some decent ideas for Koh Samui property.
