The union of poetry and photography have always been a great marriage. The addition of a poem can enhance and change the perception and the mood of a photograph; it lets the picture speak. Any poem can complement a photograph by adding another dimension to the words. However, each has the power to stand alone.

To me poetry is a kind of communication from the heart using the mind to form words to express feelings. A photograph is a witness to a moment which would have otherwise been lost in time. Each on its own is a beautiful and powerful tool to reach and touch someone. An art which should be observed not only with the eyes, but embraced with the heart and understood with the soul. It should be uplifting, taking you to a place where you feel happy and positive. To a place where you can forget and remember even if it just for a few moments; somewhere where all is well with the world. We all need moments like this and if a few written words or some photographs can take you there then go and relish in the moment, take your body mind and soul and just let it be.

My poems are a collection which I have created over the years. The idea to combine both my poetry and my rediscovered love for photography inspired me to combine these two and the result is my book "Poetry and Photography" - A Journey in Pictures and Words. I am thankful for websites like "Blurb" which made it possible to produce my own hardcover book. To see my book click here

Both my poetry and photography are a constant evolving awareness and never a finished product. It is alive and growing with me and it changes as I change.

The end result so far is this website. Please see my books 'Poetry and Photography', 'The Many Faces of Mackay' and my short stories collection 'What if" at my Book Gallery. My images at the Photo Gallery and don't forget my Card Shop.
