People keep asking me 'where are the photographs?'. 'What sort of photography do you do?'.

Well, it's not holiday brochure photography. It's not street photography. There are many things it's not. Some people say it's photographs of nothing. If I had to describe it, I would say it's fine art documentary photography and ignore all the scoffs from the technocrats and those who simply deny that photography could ever be fine art. Personally, I agree with those who describe photography as 'The defining art form of the 20th Century'.

I could fill a few pages now with words. Instead, here's an old photograph taken in Torremolinos and a link to some more old photographs from London, Berlin and Spain.

Goddesses 13 & 14

Goddess 17.

The theme is roughly following a timeline of religious evolution whilst exploring theories about ancient human migration routes.

Each painting represents a Goddess from a religious belief. A place I visited whilst walking pilgrimage routes. And, a conversation I had with someone I met along the way, or at the start, or at the end.

Goddess 16.

Tic toc, tic toc, tic toc...

Stops for no-one! Is that the date already?

The countryside of Catalunya is slow and sleepy this time of year. I am getting very restless.

Exhibition and book proposal to complete. I am looking for suitable exhibition venues in Spain, preferably in cities along the pilgrimage routes I walked.

17 Goddesses of Pilgrimage (Alternative Walking Routes to Santiago de Compostela) is a proposed book featuring paintings, sketches, photographs, maps and excerpts from my blog. Not exactly sure how to present the idea yet, but present it and sell it is what I intend to do.

I have been getting destracted by nothing. Time to get busy in this sleepy little hamlet.
