Different


T hese pictures were made earlier in spring. But, it’s hot so I thought publishing something cool would be a a cool idea. See what I did? Pictures? Yeah, there are two. I’ll discuss that next door in the right hand column. You know, I’ll write on the right. Oh God, not again. Summer inContinue reading “Different”

Crystal Blue Persuasion


What I saw… in a dream. I woke up with this in my head. Well, not exactly. But, this picture is close enough. In my dream, I was swimming upward through the color blue in this picture. I was swimming up and up until I broke through the surface with a spray of water andContinue reading “Crystal Blue Persuasion”

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”

I Remember…


I remember, I remember. Those words almost brought me to tears this morning. There was a piece in The New York Times sports section about Johnny Bench. For those who you who don’t follow baseball, he was a Major League baseball player. He was a catcher for the Cincinnati Reds. He was probably the bestContinue reading “I Remember…”

Light and Day


This was a terribly hard picture to make. I couldn’t find the angle. I couldn’t find a clean way to make it. I was working too close. I stood back, worked wide and finally made an image that I liked. Generally, I think a good picture is fairly easy to make, at least in theContinue reading “Light and Day”

For a Brand New Day


Like just about everyone else who could watch it, we watched it. We watched a new president be sworn in as a very small crowd watched. For many of us it was areligious experience. I think the administration planned it that way. It was all inclusive. It was inspiring. It moved everyone in this houseContinue reading “For a Brand New Day”

The Blues


The idea started yesterday. But, between then and now I fell asleep three times. I don’t know why. I’m not tired. I’m not sick. I don’t feel stressed. At least not any more so than any other day this year. The idea was flowers for friend. A friend who was there at the start ofContinue reading “The Blues”

Come Down In Time


Come down in time. That’s what Elton John sang back in 1971, when my life began. Or, something like that. There are moments that truly amaze me. I had one of those today. I received a letter that said my checks could no longer be sent to me because they didn’t have my address. Okay.Continue reading “Come Down In Time”

The Calling


Staying True. I’m having a conversation with some Photoshelter folks about the so-called Photographers Bill of Rights via a comment section. Most of it concerns photojournalism. That’s where my career started. That’s where my heart lies. I read the entire document. If I’m going to talk about it, I should read it. That’s only fair.Continue reading “The Calling”
