When Rain Finally Arrives


A ll in blue. I tend to photograph on the colorful side of things. Sometimes the image is true to the colors I see in real life. Sometimes the it is true to the colors I see in my head. This picture is closer to the latter. Even though we are currently living through aContinue reading “When Rain Finally Arrives”

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”

The Edge


T he edge of town. No darkness here. Just raw, bright New Mexican light. This is where Route 66 sort of comes to an end. It’s about as far west in Albuquerque as you can go, without leaving the city line. I think that these ruins, probably once a gas station and cafe, were causedContinue reading “The Edge”

The Blue Distance


Blue. My picture. Joni Mitchell’s song. My eyes. The sky on a sunny day. A clear lake. The ocean away from land. I made this picture in New Mexico. Older pictures keep resurfacing on Amazon Pictures. They are pictures that I’ve forgotten about. Pictures that have never been seen by anybody. Pictures that were “lost.”Continue reading “The Blue Distance”

Broken Harvest


Luck. Photographer’s luck. I got lucky. I saw some new arrivals in the world of nature yesterday. I was able to take my time and really work the scene. As you know, while walking a dog or two that rarely happens. But, the all seeing dog walked herself into a tired puddle. Whenever I stoppedContinue reading “Broken Harvest”

Not Many Miles To Go


When I lived in Albuquerque I was invited to take part in a photo competition. I usually don’t do those things because often they become popularity contests. Not this time. This was, what we used to call in school, a shoot off. Every photographer competed with every other photographer for a specific period of time,Continue reading “Not Many Miles To Go”

Darkling Days


A light explosion. That’s how I was seeing things as we drove into the direct sun. This picture may not exactly be physically accurate, but it’s how we felt when sunglasses didn’t help. I have no idea if this picture stays in the final project collection, but for now it’s in. After all, I onlyContinue reading “Darkling Days”

The More Things Change


You are thinking that I’m stressed over this election. Hang in there you say. I’m not hanging anywhere. I’m taking action. I’m getting set to change what I can. I’m getting ready to build for the future. I’m not going to limit myself to “I’ll do what I can.” I’m going to do the thingsContinue reading “The More Things Change”

Inspiration


It comes when it comes. Inspiration. I was talking with a friend a couple of nights ago when she said that inspiration is everywhere. I know that. But, I forgot that I did. So. Here’s the best possible example. We had a big day out. We went places. Well, two places. The gasoline store andContinue reading “Inspiration”
