From the bridge, Paris

As I prepared for the barge approaching searching for the perfect alignment of light, architecture and vessel. I heard a scream.
An old woman rushed towards me frothing at the mouth.
" you don't take my photo.
You have no right!
You have no right !"
And then she turned dramatically to an imaginary crowd.
"He has no right!"

Highlands of Scotland

Scapa flo, Orkney islands

One year I climbed those hills.
At the top you can see across island after island and when the light is right far away, the shores of Britain.

The most evil chicken in the world

Hoy, Orkney. Hard Day.

Under the mountain
Hard day in the hard north.
I carried my father.
I buried my father.
