When Harry Potter escaped from the Dursley's in The Prisoner of Azkaban, he was picked up by the Night Bus, a service for wizards and witches. The bus took him on a very fast journey to The Leaky Cauldron (that's in London, Ern!). The Bus, like most magical things in life, goes completely unnoticed by muggles (non-magical folk) much like the beauty and magic in life's ordinary things go unnoticed by most people. Inside, magic twists reality into a microcosm of the real world, safe and secure and beautiful.
This book, then, imitates the Night Bus. My photography takes ordinary, every day things and tries to show their beauty and magic. Harry said (The Goblet of Fire) "I love magic!"
Hi. I'm Larry Christopher. I am 66 years old, and have been taking pictures most of my life. I come from a family of photographers, both my Dad and my brother having great influence on me. I live in fabulous Surrey, British Columbia where one learns to take pictures outdoors even on rainy days. Members of my family include my mother Alice, my son and his wife Rob and Liz, and my dayghter Teresa. Thanks to them I also have two wonderful grandchildren Aidan and Adam, and a good friend Desirae. My wife Carol has been a great help and partner to me since 1965. I use Leica amd Nikon equipment, I no longer use film as much, but I will continue to use it for as long as it (and I) last. Long live the crow. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
