Into The Great Nowhere


I’ve been doing some kind of drive by, or drive through shooting for years. This photograph was actually made in black and white on Tri-X film. The color comes later, much later. Like last night while I was playing around. I was much younger when I made this picture. I don’t think that I’d driveContinue reading “Into The Great Nowhere”

Why Not?


Today I learned that Pakistan has flooded so badly that a very large hotel was toppled. This comes on top of all the flooding in the United States, in Kentucky, in the desert, near St. Louis and so on. Europe is in a major drought, so bad that shipping is imperiled on most rivers, soContinue reading “Why Not?”

When Balloons Break Bad


I think I mentioned I downloaded some editing software on my Amazon Fire. The system is weird. It’s neither Mac or Windows based. It’s Amazon’s own software. You can download work around software that allows me to connect to my email among other things. The editing software does a lot of things no other portableContinue reading “When Balloons Break Bad”

The Great Chase


Once upon a time I used to make pictures like this on a regular basis. I’m not sure why I stopped. It wasn’t a conscience decision. I just sort of let it fade away. I’m thinking that before I slip out of New Orleans for good I should wander around the city making these kindContinue reading “The Great Chase”

Me And My Mountain


I thought that it would be a good idea to show you what it’s like to be on The Sandias rather than just show you the mountain range from a distance. I made this picture in late Autumn. It was so cold up there that I had to wear gloves until I actually was shooting.Continue reading “Me And My Mountain”

It’s Alway The Sky


New Mexico light. That’s one of the biggest reason that artists flock to the high desert of New Mexico. It was not one of the reasons that I came, but I sure used the light as much as I could. I didn’t always make pictures of scenes like this one unless the light was spectacular.Continue reading “It’s Alway The Sky”

Like Jazz


The change in the weather is getting to me. It would help if I stayed in one place, but I travel from hot, humid and wet, on to hot and wet, to cooler and dry. I don’t know where I am. My brain doesn’t know either. Worse, my sinuses think that I’m on a rollerContinue reading “Like Jazz”

A Lot Of Work


So Cold. The temperature was well below freezing. I was well below freezing. I made this picture in Montreal in that dead of winter assignment I photographed mostly during the week between Christmas and New Year. In New Orleans we have a Vieux Carre. You know it as The French Quarter. Vieux Carre really meansContinue reading “A Lot Of Work”

Reflections


I remember where and when I made this picture. I just din’t remember clicking the shutter. I guess that’ll happen over the years. I’ve made a lot of pictures as I’m just beginning to realize. I was sitting in a drive thru for a coffee shop called O’Hari’s Coffee House. To my way of thinkingContinue reading “Reflections”
