The wind is howling outside. I love the sounds it makes as it weaves its way through everything and everyone that crosses its path.

Last year I attempted a project where I committed to taking a photo a day for 365 days. If you look at my Flickr page dedicated to this project you will notice there are not 365 photos for you to look at. Some sceptics (including myself) would not be surprised by this. I still haven’t […]
