A Blue Thing


Testing, 1, 2, 3… A study in light, color, and form. Created in studio with a three different images everything about this picture is experimental. The layering of three pictures, the color and even the crop. Especially, the crop because the image was originally horizontal. It seems, for now, I’m going to continue to experimentContinue reading “A Blue Thing”

Daring Mind


T echnology is never my friend. We’ve long had an Audible account. I thought I might like to listen to a book while I work. After all, podcasts and a book being read is about the same thing. Along comes Apple. Between their normally high rate of paranoia and the slowness of their server I’mContinue reading “Daring Mind”

It Takes You


There’s an elegance to this flower that I like a lot. It made me think of a reversed bell. That’s not why I photographed it. I did that because it was wet, although you can barely see the water drops. Never the less, that’s what caught my eye especially since there isn’t a lot ofContinue reading “It Takes You”

Naked to the Eye


There’s nothing like Jasmine in the morning. You smell it before you see it. It’s like perfume for the outdoors. It is found all over the South and north until — well, I don’t know. The little yellow flowers don’t last long so I recommend that when you see them you just stand there andContinue reading “Naked to the Eye”

On This Day


Happy Mother’s Day. For a long time I used to post a picture that I made in 1980 of my mother and grandmother. It’s called, “Two Before Me.” Make no mistake that may be one of the best pictures that I ever made. But, I feel like moving on. My grandmother passed in 1982. MyContinue reading “On This Day”

All The Luck


I had a lot written. I wrote a lot about the soon to be vaccine. I talked about picture theory. I thought I was going along pretty good. As I attempted to switch columns I accidentally hit something — I don’t know what — and the entire written piece was deleted. I know that thereContinue reading “All The Luck”

Souls Dirge


How it began. I talked to a friend of mine who suggested that I make some changes in how I look at my world. His thinking is solid. I fear that I’ve already worked through the process, at least as far as Storyteller goes. He did offer me another idea. In order to do thatContinue reading “Souls Dirge”

A Very Long Curve… Trying Something New


I promised myself that during the lockdown I would learn something new. WordPress made that easy. Or, hard depending on your view. Like all major digital, internet based companies, they tell you what to do. Whatever happened to “the customer is always right?” I believe on June 1, they ‘re taking away all of theContinue reading “A Very Long Curve… Trying Something New”

Orange Sky


The light. Like magic. In nature. On this day. Two more to go. Then home. Happy to be here. Happy to be there. Time to take a break. Time to rest. Time to work. Harder. No. I’m not trying to be any kind of poet. Most of you know that I’m lucky to be ableContinue reading “Orange Sky”
