I Said What I Said


I started out trying to post an entirely different picture. WordPress had other ideas. I pressed the upload button and the little wheel started turning and turning… until the computer could do no more and crashed. Twice. I rebooted twice. I gave up. I rebooted again. When this happens it usually means WordPress is doingContinue reading “I Said What I Said”

When Balloons Break Bad


I think I mentioned I downloaded some editing software on my Amazon Fire. The system is weird. It’s neither Mac or Windows based. It’s Amazon’s own software. You can download work around software that allows me to connect to my email among other things. The editing software does a lot of things no other portableContinue reading “When Balloons Break Bad”

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”

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 aContinue reading “Into The Morning Sky”

World Of Strange Design


S ometimes I forget the work I’ve already done. If you recall I wasn’t posting everyday. That didn’t mean I wasn’t making new pictures and working on others. I was. And, I forgot about it. I was looking for something else when I stumbled upon a little group of pictures that I had forgotten about.Continue reading “World Of Strange Design”

Throughout


M any years ago, I used to publish an experimental picture every Sunday. I haven’t done it for a long while. I’d like to say that I’m going to resume, but I’ll probably forget. Throughout the news sites that I read there have been discussions about CoVid-19 (Over 106,000 daily new infections.), The Olympics, nationalContinue reading “Throughout”

Minutes To Downtown


T his will be very short. I’m taking a break from writing. It happened this way. An old friend of mine from my college decided to drop in here and tell me that I need a new copy editor. I haven’t talked to this guy in at least a year. He said he found typos.Continue reading “Minutes To Downtown”

Hey Tomorrow


Sometimes pictures aren’t really about things so much as they are about what they make the viewer feel. I was playing around with layering when suddenly I smiled. This picture was on my monitor. It helped me feel lighter. I was talking with a friend of mine about what art in general did for theContinue reading “Hey Tomorrow”

Catch The Wind


Everything changes. I had some lessons in that today. I wasn’t going to renew my premium membership with WordPress. It’s digital dump day, or whatever today is called. You know the equivalent of Black Friday. For electronic stuff. I ended my premium plan yesterday. I received an email from WordPress today. 40% off for theContinue reading “Catch The Wind”
