Really, Super Deluxe, Brand New


P hotographer’s luck. I tell you. That’s how this picture came about. I went outside to take the trash out and to water the dogs. I looked up and thought “holy sh*t, look at that moon.” Luckily, I had my phone with me. What’s lucky about that? I always have my phone with me. IContinue reading “Really, Super Deluxe, Brand New”

Anyway The Wind Blows


T ransitions between dark and light, the end of the day and daylight is what I look for. Sometimes I’ll wait for that time rather than burn myself out shooting daylight pictures which I’ll never even look at after the fact. It’s the light. It always the light. For me transitional light is the bestContinue reading “Anyway The Wind Blows”

The Dreamer


D reams came to me last night or early this morning. They were about this place. Sorta. In my dream everything was dusty, sort of a tannish brown. It was hard to breath without a mask. People were getting sick in the dusty atmosphere. It doesn’t a weatherman to know which way this wind blows.Continue reading “The Dreamer”

The Blue Distance


You’d think this is one of my layered pictures. It’s not. I just happened to line myself up with multiple bare trees. I did make a bunch of exposures because I didn’t believe it myself. A painter followed me here in WordPressland. I followed her back. Her work is good as it is, but sheContinue reading “The Blue Distance”

The Memory Of Trees


We walk around. We see things. We see transformation. We see change. We saw what nature tells us. That clocks can’t tell us. In the pandemic era time meanders. We act normal. As hard as we try we can’t be normal. Not no. Maybe not ever. That is a good thing. To be normal inContinue reading “The Memory Of Trees”

Weather… Or Not


The season of changes. We’ve had cool and dry weather. The best kind. Now, we have moist and warm weather. The worst kind, this early in the season. The weather blabbers on the local television stations are already talking about hurricane season. Settle down. That’s just under two months away. Anyway. I get to makeContinue reading “Weather… Or Not”

Looking in Windows (Spring)


“Thank you, my love.” That’s what the female FEDEX driver said after I signed for the Leica. Don’t get excited. It’s a southern thing. It’s a nice thing. A good way to treat each other when we interact. Anyway. I had the days wrong. Today is Leica test day. A good day too. The lightContinue reading “Looking in Windows (Spring)”

They Do Grow High


My fascination with trees. In all seasons. Especially in winter. I counted. In the last two weeks, I’ve mostly published pictures of trees. I like them. I like their shapes. Their form. I like them when their branches are bare in the winter cold. I can see all sorts of thing going on. I likeContinue reading “They Do Grow High”

Winterlude


Nature always teaches. At least, she teaches me. This picture could have been nothing. The day was cold. Cloudy. No highlights. No shadows. No shape or form. Then. Just before dusk the clouds blew out and that wonderful low winter light fell upon the bare trees. I didn’t think. I didn’t pre-edit in the camera.Continue reading “Winterlude”
