Cold, Cold, Cold


W hen I talk about photographing on assignment many people think it’s all glamour and excitement. Now, that I work in the background of making music I know that glamour is the last thing on anybody’s minds. It’s hard work and most of it sucks. Getting back to strictly photography, I once wrote that IContinue reading “Cold, Cold, Cold”

The Dream


S ometimes the pictures are better along the way rather than at the event I was going to. I was going to photograph Krewe du Vieux which is one of the earliest parades of Carnival. The parade was as I expected, too crowded and nowhere to do work arounds. Oh yeah, with the exception ofContinue reading “The Dream”

Long View


T his very well could be my last post if the software causes another break down. Make no mistake, this isn’t hard for me. I’ve been doing this for years… and years. It’s funky, nasty, poorly designed software from WordPress that is causing me grief. Every time I start to think that I should justContinue reading “Long View”

Long Time Gone


G oing where the sun keeps shining through the pouring rain. That’s what the song says. That’s what it felt like on many days out there in the high desert. This is the other end of Central Avenue, Route 66. In Albuquerque. It is a business district. When I lived there two old school cameraContinue reading “Long Time Gone”

Sometimes Just The Sky


Things come and they go. The things we want most are those things that we don’t need. Usually, the plans I made are full of holes. If they succeed, it’s pure dumb luck. No. I’m not sad. Why should I be? I made it through the first night of my second jab without a reaction.Continue reading “Sometimes Just The Sky”

New Orleans


Time for a change. I reckon that yesterday’s post about spring was a fairly good one. That’s a good way to go out. No. I’m not leaving. I’m just a little tired of photographing nature when I’m not even a nature photographer. I suppose it shows. Real nature photographers go places. Even if they stayedContinue reading “New Orleans”

Stone, Metal and Glass


New Orleans. You don’t think of my city this way. It’s true. We are funky. We are old. We have many buildings that are well over 100 years old. Houses in the Garden District are 150 years old. My first house in the 7th Ward was built in 1837. It was the second common houseContinue reading “Stone, Metal and Glass”

A Little Urban


A little change. Something a little more grungy. A little more urban. A little more made by hand. Some people think graffiti is some kind of blemish. A kind of destruction. An attack on civilized society. Others think it is a kind of street art. I fall into the latter category. Sometimes. Some of thisContinue reading “A Little Urban”

Once Upon a Place


Yes. Once upon a place. I keep writing about my time in Hong Kong. And, how I filled my down time with walks. With making pictures. With exploring. I thought that I should show you a little of my work from that time. However. I’ve reworked this picture a couple of times. Over a coupleContinue reading “Once Upon a Place”
