Home, Not Home


Y es. I was taking you through my travels, but soon New Orleans will fade into my rambles. I’d like to say I have mixed emotions about leaving, but I don’t. The city is very broken. We are on pace to have the highest number of murders per capita. That means we’ll have around 350Continue reading “Home, Not Home”

On Ferret Street


My interest in Central City is partially driven by what happened on Ferret Street, which is now called “The New Ferret Street.” When I attended Loyola University, which is next door to Tulane, Ferret Street was sort of a no go zone. It was run down, crime ridden and pretty much abandoned. It was thatContinue reading “On Ferret Street”

Something Noisy


I thought I ‘d start June with a bang. An explosion of motion.  Just a bunch of light, color and blur.  The leading lines are fun, but that’s about all. I made this picture on the streets of Bangkok. Thailand. The content? Well, cars and buses and a bit of the surrounding buildings. But youContinue reading “Something Noisy”

Zoom Zoom


Thai speed. I made this picture a few years ago on the streets of Bangkok. Thailand. I’ve always enjoyed photographing subjects in motion and making them look and feel like they are in motion. Generally, that means working at night for the drama and exposing at f 5.6 and letting the shutter speed fall whereContinue reading “Zoom Zoom”

Bangkok Mist


Sometimes, I feel like just darkening things up a bit things up a bit. This is another kind of experiment. It’s not very pretty and I’m not sure why I did it and, more to the point, kept it. I guess I’m attempting to do something more movie like. I’ve always been drawn to endContinue reading “Bangkok Mist”

On The Road


When I lived in New Mexico, I realized that Albuquerque is really a giant truck stop. That’s not a negative statement. It’s just the  understanding that while the city has spread out in every direction, the crossroads of I-40 and I-25 are located there. Old Route 66 ran through the city not only east andContinue reading “On The Road”

I’d Write A Lot…


Yes. I would write a lot today, but I need a break. I’m sure that you do too. So instead, I’m sharing a taste of this month’s Picture A Day project. I’ll post all of this month’s PAD work on April 1, since I still have a few more pictures to shoot, this being MarchContinue reading “I’d Write A Lot…”

Road Work


I’ve posted about this topic in the past. I make a lot of photographs through the windshield of my car when I am driving. As odd is this may sound, it’s probably safer when I’m driving 70-75-80-85 mph than when I am driving slower and in traffic. Even though I brace the camera on theContinue reading “Road Work”

One More Care Picture


Dusk started to fall on the car shoot, so I asked the owner to turn the headlights on. That made a much better picture. But, unfortunately camera’s light meter thought that it should mostly expose for the headlights when I was using a long lens. That created a nice, deep rich background. But, if IContinue reading “One More Care Picture”
