Four Days Gone
The work is the prayer.
As I Saw It
Travel photography. Only richer and fuller. This photograph was made in Seligman, Arizona on Route 66. The editing came out of my head. Late at night where most good things happen.
You Ain’t Going Anywhere
You just never know. You’re driving along and you see something that interests you. You stop. You starting making pictures. You start talking. Your newly found subjects know that they are somewhat interesting in this day and age, so they agree to let you keep working. It’s a kind of luck. Photographer’s luck. When people…
Road Trips and Other Matters
Once, as I was entering the small Route 66 town of Seligman, Arizona, I stumbled upon this old Air Stream trailer on the eastern edge of town. At first, I thought it was abandoned. But, as I started making pictures I realized two things. It wasn’t abandoned. And, it was functioning as an artist studio.…
Way out there. Somewhere. I don’t even remember exactly where this place is located. It’s in the desert. In Arizona. I’m betting it is somewhere near I-40. The original picture was made a long time ago. On black and white film. Apparently, I didn’t think much of it because the scan needed a lot of…

Unfortunately, I haven’t traveled like this in a long, long time. These days, we always have to get somewhere on time.…
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 in…
5000 Country Music Songs
I wrote about Seligman, Arizona, a few days ago. I realized then that you haven’t seen enough of the place. So, today’s post will be a little long and full. Thirteen pictures, I think. There’s no overall picture and that’s too bad. But, my detail pictures should give you a sense of the place. It’s…
