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.

Overnight Sleeper

One of the last pictures that I made in New Mexico was this one. I don’t usually photograph sunsets, but this one left me with no choice. The most interesting thing about this picture is that this is natural. These are New Mexico skies at sunset. I did nothing to it, added nothing to itContinue reading “Overnight Sleeper”

Color in the Air

I like color. Even though I claim not to be a nature photographer, I like color in nature. Here are a few images of New Mexican skies. Lots of colorful sunsets in that state. The picture of the moon and the cityscape is an out take from the Super moon event last year.

Exit 149

Okay. This is too weird even for me. I often write about a road called Paseo de Volcan. Or, Exit 149 off of I-40 West, just west of Albuquerque, New Mexico.

The pre-1937 Route 66 comes down From santa Fe in the north and can be tracedContinue reading “Get Your Kicks On Route 66”

Early Morning

Once upon a time when I was having a hard time getting started on a shoot, I used to give myself a little assignment called, “what is it like to…” This image was shot through the windows of a speeding New York taxi. So… “what is it like to ride in a New York taxi?”Continue reading “Early Morning”

Morning Dew

Okay. Those words are from a Greatful Dead song. But, that’s what I saw one morning when I walked out of my door. It’s funny. I have a couple of friends who always complain of having a shooting block. They can’t find anything to shoot. I usually tell them open their door and walk outsideContinue reading “Morning Dew”
