ABSTRACT

Men-oi-Pause

Men-oi-pause; a reality little talked about among men. I muddled through it and I am out of it. I Just wished I could hear in the distant the sound of a grounding male voice to keep my path steadier. Absent fathers. Instead I went down the rabbit hole. Again I am out of it and let's not go there ever. 

Here are 3 photos summarising my inner state during my male menopause.

Have you got your ticket to Mars? Wanting to be an astronaut was probably many boys childhood dream including myself. I ended up in medicine rather than aeronautics. Still I never stopped being in awe in front of the wonders of the Universe. I am particularly impressed by the images produced by HiRise - a camera in space flying over Mars again and again and again. The images coming to earth can be seen at the University of Arizona's website. So thanks to NASA, I went up high with my camera and took a series of shots along some very interesting earthly terrains... Can you guess what it is?

Urban Abstract

The concept of abstraction is a concept that my scientific brain has yet to fully integrate. However, one should not give up just because one's matrix is not quite prepared for a change. If you dig deep enough into your creative mind it will come. Creativity is change. So here are my trials at introducing the concept of abstraction into my surroundings.
