  • Colors

    I like the caption better than I like the headline. Okay, the title. The base image is of the past. It’s a long story, but many, many years ago, my Dad thought that he wanted to work as a watch maker. Like me, he lacked the patience to do that kind of meticulous work. That’s […]

  • Gently Weeps

    The world gone wrong. “One of the bloggers that I read posted a funny meme. It said something along the lines of, “2020 sounded so futuristic. Today, I traded a handkerchief for a carrot.” Besides the huge irony, those words struck me as being one of the funniest things that I’d read recently. There’s always […]

  • I Can See It In Your Eyes

    This is a pretty good way to start the work week. Don’tcha think? I’m pretty sure that if we start out on a positive note, the negative curve will flatten. Even a little helps. It’s important because a lot of people are really starting to feel it. Depression is in the air. That’s a pretty […]

  • Illegal Smile

    Just give me one good season. So sang John Prine. The singing mailman. A national treasure. He’s got Covid19. He’s been intubated. He’s 72. He’s beaten cancer twice. He’s been through chemo. He’s been radiated. He’s probably got even more underlying issues. His family asked from prayers last night. You know what to do. I […]

  • Beyond the Horizon

    I was bored. Then I got inspired. That lead to a burst of creativity. This picture emerged from the “stay at home blues.” I believe that art comes from somewhere else. Call the inspiration, God. Or, Buddha. Or, Ronald McDonald. Doesn’t matter. An artist  is lucky if he or she knows that they are just […]

  • Respect

    Call this “Coffee Pods III.” I was emptying the little bin in the espresso maker when my phone pinged. The Associated Press was telling me that Aretha Franklin just passed. I never knew her. I photographed her once. In the days of black and white film processed in a newspaper’s wet darkroom for publication the […]

  • Light, All Over The Place

    Inside, out. Light everywhere. Since a photograph is actually a Greek phrase that means drawing with light, I suppose a picture like this is about as pure as it gets. All light. Almost no subject. Content producers will probably hate this picture. It doesn’t sell anything or even try. I made it on a day […]

  • Know the World

    Water. I was looking through my archives. Again. Because I’m trying very hard not to repeat myself. And, because I realized that some artistic experiments have been going on for eight or nine years. In a couple of cities. Two states. And, on about four continents. However. I’m fascinated by nature. By the yearly spring […]

  • Asian Dream

    My Asia. The Asia of my dreams. Literally. I’ve been having some very cool dreams lately. They are so interesting that I seem to willing myself to stay asleep longer so I can explore them. That’s very nice. Dreams can go either way. There are times when dreams are close to nightmares and you can’t […]
