I Said What I Said


I started out trying to post an entirely different picture. WordPress had other ideas. I pressed the upload button and the little wheel started turning and turning… until the computer could do no more and crashed. Twice. I rebooted twice. I gave up. I rebooted again. When this happens it usually means WordPress is doingContinue reading “I Said What I Said”

Why Not?


Today I learned that Pakistan has flooded so badly that a very large hotel was toppled. This comes on top of all the flooding in the United States, in Kentucky, in the desert, near St. Louis and so on. Europe is in a major drought, so bad that shipping is imperiled on most rivers, soContinue reading “Why Not?”

When Balloons Break Bad


I think I mentioned I downloaded some editing software on my Amazon Fire. The system is weird. It’s neither Mac or Windows based. It’s Amazon’s own software. You can download work around software that allows me to connect to my email among other things. The editing software does a lot of things no other portableContinue reading “When Balloons Break Bad”

Into The Morning Sky


F loating. Sometimes it seems like that’s best path to take, rather than fight my way through whatever is impeding my progress. At least I do that in my photographic work. As you may already know, I have a fairly strict routine that I use to prepare myself to make pictures. It has evolved aContinue reading “Into The Morning Sky”

Mother Angel


Art or not, I like this photograph. It was the last of the New Mexico pictures that I was showing you earlier. I decided to make it into something more after claiming that my PAD pictures were akin to photojournalism. So, I held it back. It’s been living on my desktop staring at me, remindingContinue reading “Mother Angel”

The Wheel


The wheel is turning and it won’t slow down. Can’t back up and you can’t stand still I learned a lot today. I learned it before breakfast. I watched The President’s discussion about the horrific number of pandemic dead in our country. 500,000. That’s 120,000 more than the city of New Orleans. I listened toContinue reading “The Wheel”

Into The Morning Light


Once upon a time. I lived in New Mexico. We lived there after Hurricane Katrina hammered New Orleans. We needed a little peace. Solitude. Quitetude. I don’t know how long we planned to stay. I thought maybe a year or two. It turned out to be almost five years. We heard the pounding of theContinue reading “Into The Morning Light”

Sometimes Just The Sky


This one. This picture. The best picture that I’ve ever made of the balloon fiesta. It’s the one I told you about. I was late to the liftoff because of accidents on I-25, so I worked my way through the backstreets and came to this place on 4th Street. I thought I was in theContinue reading “Sometimes Just The Sky”

Do Me Favor, Please?


I don’t normally ask for things like this. But, please vote for this picture. Here. http://www.bucketlistpublications.com/portfolio-view/travel-photo-contest-19/ I’ve entered it in a fellow blogger’s travel photo contest. The picture? It was made a few years ago in Albuquerque, New Mexico on the opening day of The International Balloon Fiesta. It was mostly a combination of luck and, well,Continue reading “Do Me Favor, Please?”
