Home, Not Home


Y es. I was taking you through my travels, but soon New Orleans will fade into my rambles. I’d like to say I have mixed emotions about leaving, but I don’t. The city is very broken. We are on pace to have the highest number of murders per capita. That means we’ll have around 350Continue reading “Home, Not Home”

About Friday


A s many of you know I schedule my posts in advance so I didn’t get to tell you what I think about yesterday’s Supreme Court decision and the one the day before. Near as I can tell they like guns and don’t like women. Before I write much further please know that we areContinue reading “About Friday”

Once In A Lifetime


O nce upon a time I lived and worked in a far place. In Asia, in China, in Hong Kong. Sounds glamorous doesn’t it? It wasn’t. Just like most “glamorous” ventures, the hard work and effort is usually done in the deep background that most people never see. In order to do my job IContinue reading “Once In A Lifetime”

Road Color


Y esterday’s post was a bit bleak, but it was honest. Authentic, as we say today. We saw an example of it on Thursday night, when the January 6 Committee laid the insurrection at Trump’s feet. And, at his feet it will stay. I’m sure he’ll be hopping mad. Too bad. It was an exerciseContinue reading “Road Color”

Out On The Road


My WordPress buddy Tim Allen said that he hoped this worked out for me. Me too. But, what he doesn’t realize is that this better work out for me because if it doesn’t he’ll have nothing but problems since WordPress is changing everything. One helper told me that since technology has changed over the yearsContinue reading “Out On The Road”

Almost Dark


W ow, oh wow, oh wow. This is another picture that’s been reworked and cropped. What I didn’t notice until I enlarged it are some of the details. The upstairs windows are new, if new means chopped out of the wall in the late 1800s. How do I know? Aside from the sloppy finishing jobContinue reading “Almost Dark”

Darkness After Day


A s long as there’s a sky turning in the darkness after day… everything worth knowing is in the sound of your old D-35. I borrowed these words from a song. A D-35 is a particular make of a Martin guitar. It’s fairly rare. Now you know. I actually didn’t choose these words. They choseContinue reading “Darkness After Day”

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”
