    Sometimes desire

    This used to be the only place we met. We lived apart, had separate lives, friends, and families. Now, most of our kids have met the other. The venn diagram of our friends has many more people in the centre. Our lives intersect in so many places without bleeding into each other so much that we don’t know where we both begin and end. We’re here, a hotel room in the afternoon, a bottle of champagne and some sushi down, chatting, snoozing and enjoying each other’s company. We’re intimate, close, and connected. It’s a gift neither of us take for granted. And, easy though it might be to hold what…

    SinfulSunday – good-bye 61

    In most recent years Eroticon has co-incided with my birthday weekend and this has often allowed me the chance to take pictures in the hotels I stay in for the weekend. This always makes me excited because I love hotel bathrooms. The mirrors and the lighting afford endless opportunities for photos with repeating images and they always spark my creativity.

    #SinfulSunday – winter city dawn

    I was up North last week for work and staying in a hotel with a panoramic view of the city as it woke to another day from the window. At the turning point of this year I would like to thank you all for your support. It has been a tough one personally but by no means all bad. Your support here and on Twitter has helped me get through the hard times more than I can say. Thank you ?
