Not to Blame


L et’s start with this. Thank you to those of you who expressed your sympathies about my pain issues. I still haven’t heard from my doctor. I wonder how he’s gonna feel after about 75% of his earnings go into my pocket. Even though he doesn’t care about me, I take my life seriously. EContinue reading “Not to Blame”

Round Here


W et. That’s what late June and July are in Southeast Louisiana, wet. If we aren’t getting a lot of rain, the skies are gray and the air is very humid. So far, we’ve been lucky. The temperatures haven’t risen above 90 degrees except on two days and that was the high. If we didn’tContinue reading “Round Here”

A New Man


I’m only sleeping. So said John Lennon. He may have been speaking for me. I went to bed last night. I got up once at about 7am to make sure the dogs went out to do their thing. I did my morning stretches. Looked at the bed and decided to read the news. It’s almostContinue reading “A New Man”

The Leaf


A little rain fell. The water cleared and cooled the air. It also left little droplets on the leaves that weren’t calling it quits for autumn. I generally have problems with rain drops. I cannot keep them sharp. I got lucky. That, or I picked the proper focal length for this kind of work. It’sContinue reading “The Leaf”

Calm


More reflections. I’m really not a nature photographer. For many years I took no notice of it. Along came really good smart phones with cameras that could produce fairly high quality images. Phones are ubiquitous. We carry them everywhere. Like on dog walks. I started seeing things that interested me, so I started making pictures.Continue reading “Calm”

To Live


Life. In its purest form. Water droplets on a green leaf. A symbol. An icon. A touchstone. Water and wonderful deep green. Technically, it’s spring for another five days. It feels like summer in Southeastern Louisiana. The green of this leaf tells us that. It is not light, nor is it shading towards lime green.Continue reading “To Live”

And, The Weather Turned Cold


First, the rains came. Thunder too. The mixing of two weather systems. When we ventured outside, man, it was cold. And, windy. The dog who sees things wanted no part if it. She knows a few words. One of them is walk. She hears that and waits by the leashes. Another is home. She hearsContinue reading “And, The Weather Turned Cold”

The Storm


We had a storm last night. It wasn’t the usual kind. This thing was a fairly big tropical storm. I heard the the winds at about 3am. I got up to close the storm shutters. As I looked out the windows, I was amazed to see the gale force winds. Things were blowing around. TreeContinue reading “The Storm”

Rebirth


This is the heart of us. Green. Water. Renewal. I published something like this a couple of weeks ago. I like this version better. There is more water. More droplets. And, much better framing. You already know what I think. So I’ll leave it here. The picture is fairly simple. See it. Take your time.Continue reading “Rebirth”
