Welcome to my first post on my new Blog. I will be transitioning some articles from my previous Blog that I had with another provider to this one but for now I will start with a brand new post.
The month of December 2014 has a very special significance for me, as it is when I finished and published my first book "The essence of The Green Island". There is a print and an electronic version with links provided at the bottom of this post.
This book is a photographic essay of my last visit to the island where I was born, the island of Sao Miguel in the Azores, also known as "The Green Island", due to all the lush vegetation throughout. It includes 50 photographs in black and white of some of the places and things that remind me of the great times I had when I lived there for the first 30 years of my life.
I love black and white photography and as such I decided to have all the photos in BW so all distractions are taken away and show the viewer the simplicity and beauty of each scene.
The book is available as an e-book at Amazon at this link: The essence of The Green Island - E-Book
