Old Stories


When I was very young, a boy, my parents thought it was a good idea for some of us to spend the summer in Brooklyn. We traded a balmy summer in Long Beach where The Pacific Ocean was just a few miles away for the hot and humid streets of South Brooklyn. We always tookContinue reading “Old Stories”

Solid Rock


This is a tale of a confused mind, mine. I made this picture in my New Mexico days, It’s out west near the crossroads of I-40 and Route 66. Supposedly, those two roads are parallel so how could they cross. Trust me. They do. It’s just one of those things that happens in the desert.Continue reading “Solid Rock”

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”


What Remains Home again. This picture is not of home. This was made in New Mexico while a brush fire was burning in the distance. Pretty soon it wasn’t in the distance. It was staring at us. So, we beat feet. I had to know what happened so I returned to the scene. This pictureContinue reading

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”

What Did I Do?


O nce again, I head back to Meta. I’ve been learning a lot about what they are doing with Instagram and Facebook. Yes, they are promoting more video and more content creators. I doesn’t sound like anything good. Photographers on Instagram are complaining that they can’t find the photographers they follow. They are looking forContinue reading “What Did I Do?”

All Bright and Glittering


A nother long strange trip in a dream. It went this way. I was trying to get out of a city that was falling apart. Buildings were crumbling or on fire. Crime was at an all time high. There were riots in the streets. The rioters defeated the police because the police were understaffed. IContinue reading “All Bright and Glittering”

Last Stop Texaco


T his hell scape was once a busy roadside stop. They sold fuel, worked on broken down cars and had a little store. That was years ago when the road that ran right in front of it was a busy Route 66. Along came a new Interstate 40. The road in the background is basicallyContinue reading “Last Stop Texaco”
