Maybe Someday


Nine Times Another experiment. I like the picture because it is fall. Or, rather it was fall. The trees are bare. There was snow on the ground but it melted and now we are due for a major rain storm. The experiment is found in a couple of places. Obviously, in the design of theContinue reading “Maybe Someday”

Leafing


The black and white work was fun, but I see things in color. That’s really who I am. Even if a continued to photograph little slashes of things, light, shapes, line, I’d do it in color. Some people say that black and white photography distills the subject down to it’s purest form. Maybe so. MaybeContinue reading “Leafing”

Falling


Before I write anything meaningful — when has that ever happened — I owe a lot of you an apology. I don’t know how this happened, but I managed to turn off a lot of your posts. It dawned on me one day that I hadn’t heard from a number of you who I readContinue reading “Falling”

Fall Water


This is a quick post. Our supposedly rock solid never failing solar panels and massive storage batteries, failed. The company trotted right out when we called them. It’s some kind of condensed switch that toggle between the battery and the power center in the house. Or something like that. I guess it’s sort of aContinue reading “Fall Water”

Autumn Life


Another Virginia picture. How could I not make it? Oh yeah, I made it. Really made it. I made three different pictures and layered them. So, this isn’t really a photograph. It’s something else. Maybe it’s my art. I don’t know. I’m not exactly sure what art is in today’s world. I believe all artContinue reading “Autumn Life”

New Work


Creamy. That’s what photographers of a certain age call images like these. The shadows, mid tones and highlights are nicely balanced. There is no glaring contrast issues. This shouldn’t be mistaken for bokeh, which is the quality of the background of an image. Of course, bokeh is supposed to be Japanese. To the Japanese peopleContinue reading “New Work”

First Fall


It worked this time. But, the computer had all night to reboot. Between the crash time and now it’s well over 24 hours. The computer is fast, very fast. We’ll see how it goes. This is a new photograph. I made it using the RAW setting on the iPhone 14 Pro. RAW is usually theContinue reading “First Fall”

Over 99 Billion Served


I was playing around with two pictures and just like that they came together into one. That’s when I know I happened onto something good. Happened is right. I doubt that I ever actually make a good image on my own. Luck, the universe, Ronald McDonald or something leads me to the picture. Maybe that’sContinue reading “Over 99 Billion Served”
