A life-sized statue that was recently erected in our town to Herbert Columbine V.C., who died in World War One.  Thought it fitting to upload it today as it is the 11th of November.

Please listen to this and think of Herbert Columbine -  and all the other eight to ten million men of all nations who fought and died in that war:…

I took up photography about seven years ago. A photograph is not necessarily the end product of the artistic process, it can be the start of something much much different.

Current Residence: England
Favourite genre of music: Rock/pop
Extended comment to the deviation 'Beyond':

What lies behind us ?  What is behind that door to the past that is so firmly shut ?  A life-long believer in re-incarnation, I would urge anyone with airy notions of attempting to discover what they may have been in a past life to think twice before they proceed.  Past-life regression, whether conducted by oneself or a third party, is always presented as something harmless, rather in the way that ouija boards are viewed by many - almost as a form of entertainment.  What might you have been in an other existence ?  Alexander the Great ?  Napoleon ?  JFK ?  Considering the vast number of humans that have ever lived, the chances of having been someone prominent, someone influential, someone who led an exciting or prosperous life are infinitessimal:  it is far more likely that in a past life you were part of the poor, downtrodden masses; maybe a victim of a war or horror that has been hidden from you for a particular reason - namely, that you could live the following life with a good prospect of mental peace.  That is not to deny that our past lives can filter down to us in the form of subconscious thoughts, habits, phobias - and this is the only real reason to ever try and peer through that doorway:  as a form of understanding and learning, not ego-boosting.  Once that door is cracked ajar, there is no going back, there is no return to blissful ignorance once you have glimpsed what lies beyond it.
