What The…


This picture is a mess. It started out okay, but I had “help” it. It got worse. Then, it got even more worst. Luckily, it turned even worster. Or, something like that. Seriously. This is an example of just about every editing technique not really working. I probably should have made a few small improvementsContinue reading “What The…”

Number One


Wow! Our iPhone 14 Pro phones arrived yesterday. After doing all the things that it takes to transfer data, photos and apps from one phone to another, the light turned wonderful. I couldn’t do much about it immediately. Luckily, all of that took only about 30 minutes. Apple has transfer procedures down to a fineContinue reading “Number One”

One Of These Days


Tom Knudsen of The Doobie Brothers died yesterday. I listen to them now and then these days, but boy did the 1970s come flooding back. I lived in the Bay Area in those days. I went to college in San Jose. I lived in a neighborhood called The Rose Garden until I moved to theContinue reading “One Of These Days”

Sky Dog


Into Space I don’t know why, but this picture makes me really happy. From the moment I saw it on my screen, I just smiled. It was so good right from the start that I didn’t do much to it. I darkened the edges a little bit and stopped. Don’t do what you don’t needContinue reading “Sky Dog”

Why Not?


Today I learned that Pakistan has flooded so badly that a very large hotel was toppled. This comes on top of all the flooding in the United States, in Kentucky, in the desert, near St. Louis and so on. Europe is in a major drought, so bad that shipping is imperiled on most rivers, soContinue reading “Why Not?”

It’s Alway The Sky


New Mexico light. That’s one of the biggest reason that artists flock to the high desert of New Mexico. It was not one of the reasons that I came, but I sure used the light as much as I could. I didn’t always make pictures of scenes like this one unless the light was spectacular.Continue reading “It’s Alway The Sky”

Just Like


J ust like… Maxfield Parrish. If you know much about him you know that his work often more detailed than my picture. Much more. But, his clouds. Oh, his clouds. Much of his work looks like this image. What am I saying? Oh, the ego on me. His work doesn’t look like mine. My workContinue reading “Just Like”

Oh Fer…


F irst and foremost, I made a mistake. A big one. The last time that happened was in 1961. Of course, I’m kidding. I last made a mistake about five minutes ago, if not sooner. Yesterday I wrote that the link to my Tumblr version of Storyteller I said the link didn’t work. What IContinue reading “Oh Fer…”

Don’t Give Up


This picture took a lot of time to work on because it was improperly exposed. It was banding. When I darkened it, it became too dark to view. I went backwards and tried to lighten it. That made it worse. I was determined not to give up. So, I didn’t. I basically made a messContinue reading “Don’t Give Up”
