All Down The Line


D etails, details, details. They say it’s all in the details. They also say that the devil is in the details. Without thinking about it too much, I’d say details are important. And, so they are. Even though I photograph in a somewhat broad style that is very loose and free flowing, I study theContinue reading “All Down The Line”

Just In Time


I t’s not quite spring yet, but the weather is warming. Nature is starting its march toward the heat and humidity of summer. That’s good because it’s been a long and cold winter. We’ve all been through a lot. I’ve never lived in a time when there were so many big issues occurring at once.Continue reading “Just In Time”

Last Chance Lost


T he original image is ancient. I was playing around during a snowstorm in New Mexico. It was one of my picture a day images. It’s shredded newspaper. Everything came together at once. I need to make a picture and I had a new shredder that I wanted to test. So, I shredded up aContinue reading “Last Chance Lost”

Number One


T his is it. The very first one. The very first experiment in layering. I made this picture in 2010, in Albuquerque, New Mexico on my kitchen table. According to the EXIF data, I made it with an iPhone 4, in December. That means the weather was cold and there may have been snow onContinue reading “Number One”

Usually, you see them on the way back from whatever caught your eye in the first place. In a design piece they are often called point pictures which is theContinue reading “Little Pictures”

Chinese Rose


This is a Chinese Rose. I’d never heard of such a thing until a little debate broke out on Instagram. Someone posted a picture of a flower that he called a Chinese Rose. It wasn’t. Even with my lack of knowledge about flowers I knew that. So off to Google we went. It turns outContinue reading “Chinese Rose”

I Tried Going West


We seem to be headed backward. The governor closed all of the bars statewide. Actually, he just renewed their closings. If things don’t improve by cutting infections in a little more than half, we may revert to phase one. That’s the one where we stay home, eat too much and start day drinking. For some,Continue reading “I Tried Going West”

Just Dandy


Just Dandy. See what I did there? Spring arrived. The time of allergies. The time of sneezing. Not from this little guy, but from Live Oaks. So much pollen. More pollen in years. At least, that’s what the weather person said who comes on at six. Everybody is sneezing around here. Even the dogs. NoneContinue reading “Just Dandy”

Magic and Light


Magic. The Grateful Dead’s late Jerry Garcia said that we all need a little magic. I think he’s right just about now when the world seems to be spinning off into every kind of chaos. I’m not going there today. This is just something that I’ve being tinkering with until I got it to thisContinue reading “Magic and Light”
