Happy Place


I’ve been to a lot of places. Maybe too many. Even though the farm is truly beautiful and I am very happy to be here, this place, in this picture, is truly my happy place. Look at it. This picture was made in early fall. Isn’t that something? So? Why aren’t we there, rather thanContinue reading “Happy Place”

You Got Gold


A little flora and fauna New Mexican portfolio for your pleasure. Actually, I don’t believe any of the pictures depict either flora or fauna. These are wildflower pictures and tree pictures. They are distinctly New Mexican scenes. I’ve been digging into my archives and finding lost gems. Well, they are to me at least. I’veContinue reading “You Got Gold”

Friendly Ghosts


Sunday, a good day to start a new project. The photographs were all made in New Mexico. They came out of my deep archives. I’ve built a small portfolio of these pictures, all the while wondering what was I thinking for not looking at them closely. Yeah sure, a little time and space adds aContinue reading “Friendly Ghosts”

Other Work, Other Places


One, two. The same picture two different ways. The top image looks close to the original that was made on slide film. The bottom picture is my reworked version. In the past I would never offer these pictures to a client. They wouldn’t understand and they would think I failed. Or, lost my mind. ProbablyContinue reading “Other Work, Other Places”

Testing. One, Two, Three…


There was yet another big discussion about producing pictures using artificial intelligence V using some kind of camera. It took place in a photographer’s group so you can guess which way the majority of the posters went. Morality aside and as long as you are clear which kind of tools you used who cares whatContinue reading “Testing. One, Two, Three…”

Time Passages


You are looking at a slightly renewed New Mexican picture. Eastern New Mexico, that is east of the Sandias and Sangre de Cristo Mountains, looks nothing like the west which is high desert. In the east, the scenery is all grass and farm lands as the state reaches into western Colorado, which doesn’t look anythingContinue reading “Time Passages”

In Another World


Thailand. The name conjures all sorts of thoughts, myths and feelings. Truth be told, once you get outside of big cities the country is incredibly beautiful. The people are very friendly and helpful. And, the cost of living is very inexpensive. Oh, and the food is amazing, especially the street food. City life can beContinue reading “In Another World”

About The Day


Before the leaves changed, fell and the snow arrived I managed to make a few pictures. This one of them. This wildflower is managing to survive although I don’t know for how much longer. Right now the weather isn’t too cold, but it will be very soon. I wonder if this plant will make it.Continue reading “About The Day”

Brickyard Blues


We are headed to New Orleans. What? Already? No. It’s nothing good. A friend of ours just enter home hospice care. She’s been fighting cancer for four years. She’s so sick that she sleeps about 18 hours a day. When the home health care nurse arrived she couldn’t sit up to be examined. She doesn’tContinue reading “Brickyard Blues”
