Below is a sampling of some of my favorite images covering a wide range of subject matter, from landscapes and historic structures, to ruins and abandoned places; more galleries broken out into distinct categories will be added in the future.

Lightbox Navigation: To view an image in a larger size, please click on it and a ‘lightbox’ will open, allowing you to manually navigate forward and backward through all the images by clicking on the left (previous) or right (next) edges of the lightbox; by using the arrows at the bottom of the lightbox; or simply by using the left and right arrow keys on your keyboard.

Slideshow: Optionally, you can start/pause a slideshow of all the images by clicking on the bottom left arrow ‘play’ key while inside any lightbox.

Please note that if you are viewing this site on a mobile device, you must switch to the full desktop version in order to have the lightboxes open. This switch can be made by accessing the links (full desktop version or mobile version) at the bottom of any page from your mobile device.

You can view additional images within my blog posts, searchable under ‘Categories’ from the drop-down menu on the right sidebar, accessible from the home page or any blog post page. I am passionate about night photography, HDR photography (High Dynamic Range Imaging) and Urban Exploration (UrbEx – the investigation of abandoned and derelict structures), which go hand-in-glove since abandoned structures have a very wide dynamic range (from very dark to very bright).

Most of these images were shot with a Nikon DSLR camera, most recently a 36MP, full-frame Nikon D800. Some of these images were taken back during my 35mm film (analog) photography days, then scanned, digitized and post-processed. A few were taken with 35mm black and white infrared film. I am a life-long Nikon shooter.
