Mountain Home


Sometimes, while I lived in New Mexico I would take long, long drives just to explore and see things. It was on one of those day trips that I found this little country church. I stopped, walked around it and made a lot of pictures. Even though this picture isn’t the most detailed, I likeContinue reading “Mountain Home”

Plaster Angels


Some days you eat the bear. Some days the bear eats you. Yesterday was one of those days when the bear won. After four years of battling colon cancer, an old friend of mine passed. We went to college together. We worked in newspapers for many years. I left them. He did too. Everybody does.Continue reading “Plaster Angels”

Then the Sky Went Crazy


It looks serious. It’s not. It’s what happens when you mix jazz with photo editing. Things go a little crazy. I made this picture in Albuquerque. New Mexico. It was one of the first serious pictures that I took with my iPhone. It was an early model. And, it was the back up to theContinue reading “Then the Sky Went Crazy”

Sunday Glow


A little different look. Not only did I make this picture during normal daylight hours, but I used completely different production software. Because. Two reasons. I do like to experiment and tinker. But, my usual software, On1, has some new downloaded upgrades. The company seems to be struggling when it comes to new products. EspeciallyContinue reading “Sunday Glow”

Early this morning, the secondContinue reading “Another Journey”

Along the Way


Another in a long line of experiments. I took a bright and glowing image back few steps and made it almost monochromatic. This is the first time that I’m sure of the changes. I’ve lived with the bright version for a long time. That’s what’s in my head. No matter. I’m just sort of playing.Continue reading “Along the Way”

Albuquerque


“Well, they say that Santa Fe is less than ninety miles away, and I got time to roll a number and rent a car. Oh, Albuquerque. I’ve been flyin’ down the road, and I’ve been starving to be alone, and independent from the scene that I’ve known. Albuquerque. So I’ll stop when I can, findContinue reading “Albuquerque”

Sunset


Sunset.  San Francisco de Assis Mission Church. In Rancho de Taos. New Mexico. I received an email about a gallery show. One of the featured pictures was of this place. Makes sense. As locations go, this is one of the most famous in the country. The church has been drawn, painted and photographed for manyContinue reading “Sunset”

About a Daddy


Southern tales. Southern stories. A love story. One night I was talking to my friend, Chesley Thompson. She’s a Southerner. Born and raised. She has family all over the south, especially in Mississippi and Louisiana. She’s a school teacher. An incredible school teacher. Just ask her former students. I met her at UNO when we wereContinue reading “About a Daddy”
