And, In The End


Sometimes, You get lucky. You get to see the rainbow after the storm.You get to see nature being friendly rather than allowing us to get sick and die. That’s what this picture is about. Hope. You know me. You can’t eat hope. If you have hope right now, you’d better go to work. Hope, unfortunately,Continue reading “And, In The End”

Survive


Red. They say in design school that if you want to make your readers or viewers happy use warm colors rather than cold. So, that’s what I did. And, a red rose. For love. The picture is simple. It is a macro photograph. A real one. I saw it. I stopped. I made a fewContinue reading “Survive”

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. IContinue reading “Illegal Smile”

Within You


Art. I read a lot about fine art photography. I read a lot about art. I look at a lot of both. The term fine art photography seems very misplaced to me. How is another picture of a sunset fine art? Or, the waves breaking on a beach when the water has been slowed downContinue reading “Within You”

The Painter


Painter’s tools. Paint brushes waiting to be called upon to make art. No. They aren’t mine. You know better. I was walking a couple of the dogs when we came upon our neighbor who does paint. She likes to say hello to the dogs so we know each other a little bit. Her studio isContinue reading “The Painter”

Banksy


There are rumors and rumors of rumors. Especially in New Orleans. I thought that I stumbled upon one of the so-called missing Banksy bits of wall graffiti and political commentary. Apparently, he came through New Orleans in 2008 and did his thing. Love his work or think it’s just graffiti defacing a wall, he didContinue reading “Banksy”

Learning Something New


I was wondering around with some new friends when I discovered this new art mall. Always remember one thing, discovery for me  means that everyone else knew about it ten years previously. I guess that I’m mostly lost. At one point we wandered to the back of the “mall.” This guy was sitting there. IContinue reading “Learning Something New”

A Thing Called Bokeh


Bokeh. It’s a Japanese word for the blurred out of focus areas in a photograph. Good bokeh has certain characteristics such as definable round shapes.  It is mostly found around highlight areas and places where specular highlights appear. Specular highlights are  pure white areas that usually appear when light is reflected off of a veryContinue reading “A Thing Called Bokeh”
