A strange thing happened to me on the way to Storyteller.

I started looking at a huge amount of past work. Sure, I pass through my archives on the way to a certain picture, but I don’t usually browse around. I’m pretty efficient.

This time I took a long look around. I started thinking about the circumstances of making an individual picture or even a set of pictures. I let my memories wash over me. I thought about the places I’ve been to make pictures, books and manage music.

I’ve been just about everywhere.

There are a few places that I’d still like to go. I’m not sure if I’ll ever reach them. Luckily, there aren’t too many of them since most of them involve Eastern European destinations. I’m sure most are safe but I don’t want to be there in case some Russian leader gets crazy.

We’ll see.

After all, I’m busy enough this summer without thinking about traveling to places where I could get shot.

Oh wait. That’s Texas, Or Tulsa or anywhere in New Orleans.

Seems safer in Ukraine. At least, I know they’re coming for me in a real war zone. In America we get in gun fights before we even know we are in them.

So, today I thought I’d just post pretty pictures that mostly feature light and sparkling stuff.

It’s Friday.

Sparkling stuff it is.
