  • 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 in […]

  • 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 and […]

  • 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 stopped […]

  • 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 best […]

  • 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 the […]

  • 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 house […]

  • 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 of […]

  • 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. […]

  • 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. […]
