  • You Got Gold

    A little flora and fauna New Mexican portfolio for your pleasure. Actually, I don’t believe any of the pictures depict either flora or fauna. These are wildflower pictures and tree pictures. They are distinctly New Mexican scenes. I’ve been digging into my archives and finding lost gems. Well, they are to me at least. I’ve […]

  • Oh Sure

    A friend of mine and sometimes photographer posted something on Facebook that caught my attention. It is balloon fiesta time in Albuquerque so he wrote something along the lines of all the pictures look the same. Oh nonsense. If you open your eyes I’m pretty sure that you’ll find something a little different. I did […]

  • Into The Morning Sky

    F loating. Sometimes it seems like that’s best path to take, rather than fight my way through whatever is impeding my progress. At least I do that in my photographic work. As you may already know, I have a fairly strict routine that I use to prepare myself to make pictures. It has evolved a […]

  • What Does It Mean?

    L ouisiana is leading the country in Covid-19 infections. We are nowhere near 70% vaccination rate. Orleans Parish beat the CDC in mandating masks indoors again. Now I’m starting to hear whispers in the wind that musical venues will close again and that includes both Jazzfest and French Quarter Fest. The loss of both of […]

  • Sometimes, In The Evening

    S ometimes it pays to cover old ground. One day I drove out to an odd section of the Ninth Ward. I parked as close to the levee as i could get and walked into the neighborhood which is known as Holy Cross. I saw the wonderful light and stopped. I made about three frames […]

  • The Wheel

    The wheel is turning and it won’t slow down. Can’t back up and you can’t stand still I learned a lot today. I learned it before breakfast. I watched The President’s discussion about the horrific number of pandemic dead in our country. 500,000. That’s 120,000 more than the city of New Orleans. I listened to […]

  • Into The Morning Light

    Once upon a time. I lived in New Mexico. We lived there after Hurricane Katrina hammered New Orleans. We needed a little peace. Solitude. Quitetude. I don’t know how long we planned to stay. I thought maybe a year or two. It turned out to be almost five years. We heard the pounding of the […]

  • Where The Beauty Is

    The original title was going to be “The Boys of Summer,” after reading about a number of great baseball players of my youth passing. But, Eddie Van Halen died. He was 65, a year younger than I am now. He died after a very long battle with cancer. He family was with him. He was […]

  • Where The Beauty Is

    This is another event that the pandemic killed for this year. The Albuquerque Balloon Festa was supposed to fly for its 49th year. You might think that being out on a cold and windy balloon field would be safe enough, but people come from all over the world. They need places to stay, places to […]
