More Than The Sky


W ork. It’s all about the work. If it’s important the work is simple, but simple things are hard. In any case, the work is the prayer. I’m sitting here listening to a pod cast with Donnie Osmond. Wait, what? Yes. Donnie Osmond. It turns out he is one helluva a musician and a greatContinue reading “More Than The Sky”

The Edge of Town


U rbex deluxe. I wrote that in the picture’s caption and I liked it so well that I made it the lead line. I’m thinking it could be a good name for a band. Anyway. My past is coming back to haunt me. I used to photograph a lot of urbex, or urban exploration forContinue reading “The Edge of Town”

I Feel A Shift


A kindred spirit with a stranger’s face. That’s how it starts. A friendship. An album. A project. A life. This photograph. I keep stealing words from a friend. She’s gonna want a word with me. Eventually. But, not right now. For me, the words are just a good place to begin. That means something toContinue reading “I Feel A Shift”

On Your Shore


There is something that I’ve mentioned is the past. I’m repeating myself. Some of you replied that it didn’t matter because nature changes in subtle ways. Some of you were wrong. After I made this picture I happened to scroll through my Storyteller archive. Guess what? Not only did I find a a very similarContinue reading “On Your Shore”

20 Million Things


A little minimalist. New growth reaching toward the sky. I’d talk about the first day of teaching but it would just make you sick. Let me just say this. Everything the school district said to the parents and the teachers were lies, lies and more lies. This will never work. People will get sick. SomeContinue reading “20 Million Things”

Two Sides


This picture. Moody. Mysterious. Maybe even a little evil. I didn’t see it quite that way when I made the picture. But, once I started working on it. Tinkering with it. Pushing it.  That’s when I started to see it. The picture became something else. I would say that I did it. No. The pictureContinue reading “Two Sides”

Sometimes It’s Art


Sometimes it’s art. Mostly it isn’t. That’s the time in which we live. I have a buddy who makes real, live travel videos. For National Geographic Traveler and clients at that level. He was on a great Facebook rant. He was getting tired of seeing some guy and that guy’s girlfriend taking empty and vacuousContinue reading “Sometimes It’s Art”

Nature’s Glow


Just another day. In nature. These pictures are more about mood than documentation. Today’s light is drifting in and out. Sometime the light is and powerful. And, sometimes it looks about like it does as I am writing this. Soft and shadowless. I there a political comment for today? Not really, except to say thatContinue reading “Nature’s Glow”

Never Ending


It never ends. Construction. Along the streetcar tracks. Along the three major river-to-lake streets. Everywhere. Streetcar tracks have been torn up. Work done. Tracks replaced. And torn up again.  These major streets have not been construction free for years. And, won’t be for many more years. People cannot park in front of their homes. BusinessesContinue reading “Never Ending”
