I Said What I Said


I started out trying to post an entirely different picture. WordPress had other ideas. I pressed the upload button and the little wheel started turning and turning… until the computer could do no more and crashed. Twice. I rebooted twice. I gave up. I rebooted again. When this happens it usually means WordPress is doingContinue reading “I Said What I Said”

Why Not?


Today I learned that Pakistan has flooded so badly that a very large hotel was toppled. This comes on top of all the flooding in the United States, in Kentucky, in the desert, near St. Louis and so on. Europe is in a major drought, so bad that shipping is imperiled on most rivers, soContinue reading “Why Not?”

When Balloons Break Bad


I think I mentioned I downloaded some editing software on my Amazon Fire. The system is weird. It’s neither Mac or Windows based. It’s Amazon’s own software. You can download work around software that allows me to connect to my email among other things. The editing software does a lot of things no other portableContinue reading “When Balloons Break Bad”

Into The Morning Sky


F loating. Sometimes it seems like that’s best path to take, rather than fight my way through whatever is impeding my progress. At least I do that in my photographic work. As you may already know, I have a fairly strict routine that I use to prepare myself to make pictures. It has evolved aContinue reading “Into The Morning Sky”

Have You Seen Me Lately?


T his picture was made of a little of this and a little of that. I mean it. There are three pictures in there lurking somewhere. None of them were made at the same time. One was made in New Mexico. One was made in New Orleans. And, one was made in Shrewsbury. The lastContinue reading “Have You Seen Me Lately?”

Minutes To Downtown


T his will be very short. I’m taking a break from writing. It happened this way. An old friend of mine from my college decided to drop in here and tell me that I need a new copy editor. I haven’t talked to this guy in at least a year. He said he found typos.Continue reading “Minutes To Downtown”

Hey Tomorrow


Sometimes pictures aren’t really about things so much as they are about what they make the viewer feel. I was playing around with layering when suddenly I smiled. This picture was on my monitor. It helped me feel lighter. I was talking with a friend of mine about what art in general did for theContinue reading “Hey Tomorrow”

Danger Bird


Amazon pictures is the problem. Every time that I open it up I find more and more “lost” pictures. It doesn’t help that I’m a little lost myself. You’d think that I want to travel. I don’t. Although some big news about travel happened yesterday via Live Nations’ president Michael Rapino. He’s booked the threeContinue reading “Danger Bird”

The Wheel


The wheel is turning and it won’t slow down. Can’t back up and you can’t stand still I learned a lot today. I learned it before breakfast. I watched The President’s discussion about the horrific number of pandemic dead in our country. 500,000. That’s 120,000 more than the city of New Orleans. I listened toContinue reading “The Wheel”
