Winterlude


I ‘ve been struggling to find topics to write about. I’ve been trying to keep my posts lighthearted but we are living through some of the worst times that I’ve ever seen. The country is so polarized that I’m pretty sure that we can’t agree about the color of the sky. Now we’ve got theContinue reading “Winterlude”

Into The Mystic


S heesh. I started this post and forgot about it. Until now. I try to post at noon my time. Obviously, I’m late. Very late. Sorry about that. Let’s talk about stupidity and failure. There is a guy who posts as NOLAphotoguild on Instagram. Today he wrote an eight page screed about freedom. I betContinue reading “Into The Mystic”

On This Day


T oday is a big day. In New Orleans, January 6th marks the start of Carnival with a parade through The French Quarter and a streetcar ride. It only grows from here until the season ends on Mardi Gras Tuesday. More importantly, today marks the one year anniversary of the insurrection, storming and temporary takeContinue reading “On This Day”

They Might Be Lost


A dark sky along with a dark day. I’m trying to decide two moral dilemmas. I suppose we all should take the high road, but I also feel that paybacks are in order to just to make sure that consequences of short sightedness are understood. First, understand that I stand with all the states andContinue reading “They Might Be Lost”

Living in a Ghost Town


T his picture. This very one. I wanted to publish it today even thought we aren’t quite to this point. Why? Because I could and felt like it. That’s reason enough even if it isn’t the best reason. I suppose I could tell you some story about my thinking, but there isn’t any. Stories orContinue reading “Living in a Ghost Town”

Not Dark Yet


T he title comes from Bob Dylan. The picture is my third try at publishing. There were no problems. I just didn’t like the picture. I tried reworking the first one, but that didn’t fly. I may try reworking it from the original. I well over defined the clouds on the processed images which madeContinue reading “Not Dark Yet”

Little Day Remaining


S o. I turned in another direction and saw this sky which was very different from the one that I showed you yesterday. The brightness of the light as I looked across the scene changed everything including the color intensity. In case you are wondering, the weather is still cool and dry. In fact, it’sContinue reading “Little Day Remaining”

The Journey


F all really came today. Cool winds. Cool temperature. No air conditioning. Windows wide open. No apparent humidity. People celebrating. I’m not sure about the last statement. People celebrating. That may be taking it a little too far. Let’s just say people are happy. I’m happy. That’s why I’m late. I went and stayed outside.Continue reading “The Journey”

What Will Be


S ometimes I really don’t have much to say about world events. I’ve read enough to know that some days I’m better off staying in bed. And, on other days I just go for a walk. This picture found me on a walk. Aside from the square crop, I did nothing to it. It isContinue reading “What Will Be”
