Someone, somewhere stated that “Good is the enemy of great”. I’ve been fiddling with my new website for weeks trying to make peace between the two. A truce was called. Time to launch myself into my “second life”. Being an advertising art director for the last 25 years has been incredibly rewarding for me – but my real passion now is photography. When you are passionate about doing something, you tend to do it well, and it shows in the work. Hopefully, my passion for photography will, in time, shine through. If you get a moment, I would appreciate you visiting the site and rummaging around. Please feel free to suggest ideas and thoughts about the site and how I could make it better. Good enough may be the enemy of great, but the will to get better is your best weapon in the fight to do great work.

I named my blog ‘Time Machine’ for a reason – a camera not only freezes a moment in time but can also explore the space-time continuum within a two-dimensional still photograph. Photographer Stephen Wilkes crafts stunning compositions of landscapes as they transition from day to night.

I would love to paint. Technically, I have the ability – but lack of time coupled with plenty of procrastination seem to hamper my efforts to put pigment to paper or canvas. That was until I discovered the next best thing to pigment – pixels. Less messy, but just as creative, photo apps for smartphones are a minor miracle in their sophistication and ease of use. And price. For the price of a coffee, photo apps can give you all the power and functionality of any professional image editing tool. I’ve lost count of how many photo apps I’ve downloaded over the years and have enjoyed experimenting with different tones, hues and textures. The images posted here are the results of that experimentation. Hope you like them – and should you like one of them enough to want a pristine print on your wall, please write to me at email@example.com and we’ll chat about print sizes, prices and shipping arrangements. Thank you for your visit.
Belgium might not be world-renowned for spectacular landscapes – but it has a magical charm all of its own. Like its people and culture, there is a strength and depth to the topology that might not be immediately obvious. The more you look – the more you see – the more you like what you see. I choose the music of the 19th century French composer Erik Satie to accompany the film. Though not Belgian – the wistful melancholy of his music evokes the rhythms of Belgium – beautiful yet unobtrusive.
