Life Is A Highway


This is one of those days when the picture has nothing to do with the topics. In fact, I have two subjects that I’d like to discuss. But first, this is a road on the back side of the Sandia Mountain Range, making it slightly northeast of Albuquerque. Often, search for a PAD meant takingContinue reading “Life Is A Highway”

Into the Great Unknown.


A little obsession goes a long way. I’m not talking about the perfume. I’m  talking about a mental and emotional obsession. I’m talking about the one that I have when it comes the closing of 2019. Normally, I don’t really care. It’s just the pages of the calendar turning. Not this time. I can hardlyContinue reading “Into the Great Unknown.”

More Road, Some Sky


Once again. A road and sky picture. It’s not really what it seems. It looks like I am out on some distant road. Not really. I was running errands. I drove out to Jefferson Parish. I was getting ready to drive home. I realized that I was driving up and over a railroad bridge, whichContinue reading “More Road, Some Sky”

Gulf Coast Skies


They say if you don’t like the weather, wait five minutes. A lot of people in a lot of places say this. Of all the places I’ve been — and, that’s a lot — I’ve never seen the weather change as often and as frequently as it does in Southeast Louisiana. All these colorful cloudsContinue reading “Gulf Coast Skies”

Haunted


This picture sort of fits into the more general theme of “the city that care forgot.” I’d thought about publishing a sort of drifty, wind-blown flower picture. But, I’m not ready for it yet. Maybe Sunday, since it’s a nice gentle image. For now, I’ll go with this gothic church. It’s located Uptown, but I’llContinue reading “Haunted”

Even More Gritty


As you know, I like to experiment with my pictures. A few days ago, I published a picture similar to this one. Well, five days ago to be exact. The picture was two images away from this one in the files. I thought this particular frame was even more desolate than the original picture. So,Continue reading “Even More Gritty”

Out West


I know. I know. I said I was taking a break over the long weekend. Big plans and all that. But, two people around here caught colds. It’s kind of funny. The older I get, the less I like being around crowds. Now, I’ve figured out one of the reasons for this new phobia. TheContinue reading “Out West”

A Spring Day


I went out to make a picture of the haunted Le Beau mansion. I thought it would be a great day because the sky was overcast, but the clouds were defined. I wanted to make a scary picture. A cloudy day works best for that because it’s a little flat. You can add a lotContinue reading “A Spring Day”

Gothic New Orleans


I was driving on Freret Street heading for coffee and food when I saw this church out of the corner of my eye. I quickly made a left, then another left and finally another left. Yes. New Orleans is a city of one way streets. But, that’s okay. At least I could see what IContinue reading “Gothic New Orleans”
