Somewhere Under Heaven


T his is a New Mexico picture. Sometimes I just see shapes and I want to see what they look when I photograph them. I’d forgotten this picture until Amazon found it some buried sub-archive. Boy, was I happily surprised. I’d tell you that this is an adobe wall, but it is not. It is someContinue reading “Somewhere Under Heaven”

Mellow Yellow


T here is a period in my life when I liked to make very closely focused pictures that are akin to macro photography. That period started about twenty years ago and continues to this day. Some period, eh? For me, this work is something like a palette cleanser between other, more gritty subjects. Of course,Continue reading “Mellow Yellow”

On This Day


Happy Mother’s Day. For a long time I used to post a picture that I made in 1980 of my mother and grandmother. It’s called, “Two Before Me.” Make no mistake that may be one of the best pictures that I ever made. But, I feel like moving on. My grandmother passed in 1982. MyContinue reading “On This Day”

Good Tradition


Does this ever happen to you? You see something in a dream and then, there it is in real life. That’s how I came to make this photograph. My dream was weird and wild — as they often are — but toward the end as I was waking up I was enveloped in this purpleContinue reading “Good Tradition”

Further In


Sometimes, it’s worth the time to look inside. Of anything. I’ve been looking inside myself since mid-lockdown. We have no need to go there today. Looking inside of things that may be near and dear to its is another matter entirely. For me, that really is only three things. Photography, art, and music. For sure,Continue reading “Further In”

Souls Dirge


How it began. I talked to a friend of mine who suggested that I make some changes in how I look at my world. His thinking is solid. I fear that I’ve already worked through the process, at least as far as Storyteller goes. He did offer me another idea. In order to do thatContinue reading “Souls Dirge”

Deep Down Heart


Creativity. That’s what we all want. We want to be able to make a good picture, whether we use a camera, paint, charcoal, pencils or crayons. And, that’s just a few visual media. If you are a musician, you seek other techniques and outlets because your finished product is not captured on paper. And, soContinue reading “Deep Down Heart”

Starting Small


Something simple. I’ve been reading a lot about the future by studying the past up to now. I’ve said repeatedly that I don’t want things to return to normal. I want them to be better. I like the idea of NCY closing a lot of streets to traffic so people can walk about freely, butContinue reading “Starting Small”

Survive


Red. They say in design school that if you want to make your readers or viewers happy use warm colors rather than cold. So, that’s what I did. And, a red rose. For love. The picture is simple. It is a macro photograph. A real one. I saw it. I stopped. I made a fewContinue reading “Survive”
