  • Missing Something

    It took some time. Six years to be precise. Six years of wandering around when I was free enough to focus on making some meaningful pictures. Focus. Pun intended. This work was made long enough ago that it is all made on film. My film of preference, Fuji. Velvia. ISO 50, which we mostly used […]

  • 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 I […]

  • 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 of […]

  • 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 just […]

  • 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 camera […]

  • 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. […]

  • 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 stayed […]

  • 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 house […]

  • 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 this […]
