Glyph = "a symbol, such as a stylized figure or arrow on a public sign, that imparts information nonverbally" (Merriam-Webster's on-line dictionary, http://www.merriam-webster.com); derives from Greek glyphe = carved work and from glyphein = to carve.

The images in this portfolio consist of "discovered" glyphs; otherwise hidden in the context of the everyday: paint splotches on textured rubber dinghies in the Port of Piraeus in Athens, Greece; cracked concrete on suburban roadsigns; and reverse negative imprints of currents of moonlight reflected in lakewater in the Adirondacks, NY.

At first glance, these glyphs may appear completely random and devoid of all meaning. But a deeper inspection reveals the stirrings of ineffably hidden harmonies.
