This weekend I’m away from the hard drives containing all my photos and I will use a previously uploaded image for the week’s WordPress Photo Challenge: Inside. I discovered that joining the challenge before the weekend is over is a good way of meeting new […]



In the evening, when the workers are gone, the Slaughterhouse district becomes deserted. The construction site next to it is also abandoned during night time.  Public places designed for large numbers of people automatically seem to become horrifying playgrounds for the imagination when nobody is […]
