This site is about moments that I capture while doing a photowalk. I am not into grit, there are many photographers who try to to that, but only a few are successful (two of the incredible ones are Matt Tuteur, who I sometimes bump into in the streets while he is on his walkabout and Jim Watkins, an ex-Chicagoan who is doing wonders taking photos of the streets of San Francisco). What I like to capture is the mundane and the insignificant that nobody notices. Or care about. I could be gritty and edgy, sometimes that happens, but I am not there yet.
