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.

Pink-O-Boogie


I seem to be on a roll with Ry Cooder songs. Most of  these songs are from an album called I, Flathead. Strange desert, country music with a Ry Cooder twist. Makes me think of some of the stranger places that I’ve photographed along Route 66 for that project. So. These pictures were made inContinue reading “Pink-O-Boogie”

Drifting


This picture is called High Desert Drifter. Drifting is what I’ve been trying to do since the passing of Debbie. But, my neighbors won’t let me. For instance, I haven’t cooked a meal since Monday. That’s not because I’ve lost the will or am not hungry. It’s because they keep feeding me. Breakfast. Lunch. Dinner.Continue reading “Drifting”

Blue Light


Everybody knows this place. But, they know it from a different angle. This is the famous San Francisco de Asis church in Rancho de Taos, New Mexico. Viewed from its back side, which faces the road, it is probably one of the most painted and photographed places in The United States. But, seen from theContinue reading “Blue Light”

Same Road, Same Reason


I think this will be the last of my experimental pictures that I’ll post for a while. I have no reason for not posting more of these images other than that I get bored easily and there doesn’t seem to be a way to turn pictures like these into clients, or as they say inContinue reading “Same Road, Same Reason”

The Myth Of Me.


I claim not to be a nature photographer. That’s only partially true. I’m not a nature photographer in the sense that I don’t do anything really overt to make pictures of nature. I don’t him 20 miles to take a picture. I don’t sit in some stream bed to make a picture of a rareContinue reading “The Myth Of Me.”

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 littleContinue reading “Quirky Western Pictures”

The Loneliest Road In America


They say that US Route 50 is the loneliest road in America. It’s true. I’ve never driven all of it, but I’ve driven it from California to Utah and it can be pretty bleak. One of these days I might drive the whole thing. I guess that’s another thing for my bucket list which hasContinue reading “The Loneliest Road In America”

Settlin’ In


A peaceful Sunday. A little break. Three pictures. Quiet pictures. Made at different times and places. For different reasons. The three of them are: Taos Dusk, Bamboo and Morning Spider Web. Yes. I have some shot back stories to share. Taos Dusk. Everybody photographs this place. Everybody paints it. Ansel Adams made a landmark photographContinue reading “Settlin’ In”
