The Loneliness of the Hotel Bar

One of those moments when was walking along a busy main road about 9 at night and saw this image through a hotel bar window. It’s one of those scenes that I have no idea why I like it or why I have this mad feeling of having to capture it before someone walks inContinue reading “The Loneliness of the Hotel Bar”

I walked outsideContinue reading “Alarm Bell”
