  • The Parade

    I’ve written a lot about second line parades. I’ve shared pictures that were mostly little snatches, snapshots and scenes of Uncle Lionel’s various second line parades. But, what does it look like when you stand back? Well. It looks like this… 

  • The Edge of Town

    It must be my mood. I like this picture. A lot. I don’t know why. It was made in Albuquerque, New Mexico. It is located at the most far western end of Central Avenue, which means it is also where the Albuquerque’s section of old Route 66 comes to an end. This was one of […]

  • Red Horse

    This is an older picture. I made it in Portugal at their version of a bullfight. I say their because it differs greatly from the spanish version in that the bull is not killed in the ring. The bull is either restored to health or is butcher by a professional butcher far away from the […]

  • And, On The Fourth of July

    I’m not really a big fireworks kind of guy. So, while I was thinking about what to post today, I came up with the idea of a collection of Americana pictures. So here we go.

  • 5000 Country Music Songs

There’s no overall picture and that’s too bad. But, my detail pictures should give you a sense of the place. It’s […]

  • 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 the […]

  • Quirky Western Pictures

    When I take road trips, I sort of shape shift as I work. Sometimes I try to make pictures that are a little iconic. Sometimes I try to channel my best Ernst Haas. Sometimes I look for quirky subjects. These images are quirky. There is a little twist to them. Maybe there is a little […]

  • Albuquerque

    After the storm, which is known as Hurricane Katrina to most folks, I thought it would be a good idea to relocate to New Mexico. Even though I traveled there for probably 25 years, living there didn’t really suit me. As much as I tried to sort that I out, I can’t really put my […]
