Thank you very much for your words, i appreicate that you took the time to look through my small colection. Bear in mind that everything i say from here onwards is coming from somone with no  academical or practical training in photography, as clichéd as it may sound i have simply been, from a young age, fascinated by film and photography. So my approach to photography is basically trying to capture in some way what i see in the world, not neccisarily just through the way i look at it on the surface (artsy fartsy, i know) trying to incorporate the feeling brought on by that setting, place, time or whathaveya.This all encompassing approach is more of an assporation than anything, i am far off to say the least in reaching the stage weherby my camera and software are an extension of my imagination. Im still realy experiemnting with my photogoraphy whether that be edeting or capturing to portray diffent ideas etc. With my “influences” being more at the arty end of the spectrum, spec. Ryan Mcginley and such like that has allways been the sort of output i have been aiming for. I have no intention of quiting or even necessarily sticking to the styles that you have seen in that gallerey. To address your comments dirrectly i agree with all that you have said, apart from the comment on “son” this was intended to be a sort of word play on the idea that the photo was taken in an big old abbandoned house, which obvioulsy would have been passed through generations, familys etc, hence son, and obviously the visual nature of the “sun” as in the big yellow shiny thing in the sky.

Anyway, enough about the weather, thank you again for your comments and taking the time to look at my collection of photographs!!
