Different


T hese pictures were made earlier in spring. But, it’s hot so I thought publishing something cool would be a a cool idea. See what I did? Pictures? Yeah, there are two. I’ll discuss that next door in the right hand column. You know, I’ll write on the right. Oh God, not again. Summer inContinue reading “Different”

Troubles


I started thinking about our world. Normally, I’d like to think I’m positive in general, but not right these days. Our world is a terrible place. There is the elephant in the room, CoVid19 which became political when it was scientific. Even though the numbers are rising at the rate of five times faster thanContinue reading “Troubles”

I Forgive It All


There are times when I forget what I’ve done in the past. I made this picture four years ago and I cannot remember doing it. I probably made it on the way to someplace else like a second line. You know me. I’m not a fan of useless data. But, sometimes it helps. Here’s aContinue reading “I Forgive It All”

The Hard Way


T here is a group of photographic artists who have seemed to have determined what contemporary fine art photography should look like. It looks something like this picture, but probably more precious in concept and explanation. A friend of mine, a good photographer, has started to make inroads into that world. And, I have toContinue reading “The Hard Way”

Little Tiny Changes


A photographer friend of mine suggested that I talk to a new stock — not stock — agency. I’ve been far away from that for years. There are too many photographs, too many photographers and not enough return on investment. This agency claims to be different. And their licensing prices are very high. More moneyContinue reading “Little Tiny Changes”

Run The Voodoo Down


L ast night it came to me in a fever dream just how much work there is to do. Not just me but for all of us. We know the most pressing items. The pandemic, climate change, inflation, crime, Ukraine, China. There are smaller issues that don’t seem so pressing. But, they are. The infrastructureContinue reading “Run The Voodoo Down”

Questions


A rant. A slight rant. Mardi Gras parade season began last night with Krewe du Vieux walking through the French Quarter. In all the pictures that I saw I counted one mask, no social distancing. Many of the pictures were made by friends of mine who also didn’t wear masks. I think that in aboutContinue reading “Questions”

Goin’ Back


G oing back even further. Back to around 1980 to be exact. Back to a time when pictures were made on film. Black and white film called Tri-X. Its ISO was 400 but it could be manipulated in exposure and development. I’d like to say that those were the days. But, they weren’t. I workedContinue reading “Goin’ Back”

Here We Go


W hen I was a young photographer making my way through the world I used work at a newspaper for about two years and move on and hopefully up. I learned a lot along the way from mentors and friends. My last stop before I headed east and to the bigger time was in Winston-Salem,Continue reading “Here We Go”
