united we stand

‘Everyone’s worried about stopping terrorism. Well, there’s really an easy way: Stop participating in it.’

– Noam Chomsky


Today, I am not in Brussel in body. But, my mind, heart and soul are with my friends and colleagues who are there now.

Words at a time like this are futile. I was in London on 7 / 7, I remember all the feelings a day like today provokes.

What kept us sane then was the sense of unity that we all felt. Regardless of race, creed, faith, or no faith. United we stood then.

There is only one way to deal with this.

By remaining united against those that seek to use terror against the innocent.


And Again.
And Again.

New York. Madrid. London. Paris. Brussel.

United We Stand

photography101: weekend two:3 (playing with light)

My last post for the weekend…I think…

I’ve had another try at time-lapse, read a lot about how to do it, and sadly have failed to apply most of what I have read – I need to work on reflections, choppy sequences, shutter speed and a zillion other things

But hey, Photo101 is about learning?

So, time for a Belgian beer to close down the evening and prepare for another week at work 😉

Sunday evening…
