Happy Place


I’ve been to a lot of places. Maybe too many. Even though the farm is truly beautiful and I am very happy to be here, this place, in this picture, is truly my happy place. Look at it. This picture was made in early fall. Isn’t that something? So? Why aren’t we there, rather thanContinue reading “Happy Place”

Maybe Someday


Nine Times Another experiment. I like the picture because it is fall. Or, rather it was fall. The trees are bare. There was snow on the ground but it melted and now we are due for a major rain storm. The experiment is found in a couple of places. Obviously, in the design of theContinue reading “Maybe Someday”

Walking


One day I was walking through The Bywater, which is really a neighborhood in the 9th Ward, when I ran headlong into fall. Quickly, I pressed the button and bam, bam, bam, I made a picture. I turned around and went to The Bank of Soul, an art gallery owned by an old friend ofContinue reading “Walking”

Changes


Somehow I started thinking about my past. I don’t know how it happened except that it came to me in a fever dream. That jump started thinking while I was awake. I started by thinking about the beginnings of my career and the people and places surrounding that time and my history from then toContinue reading “Changes”

Leafing


The black and white work was fun, but I see things in color. That’s really who I am. Even if a continued to photograph little slashes of things, light, shapes, line, I’d do it in color. Some people say that black and white photography distills the subject down to it’s purest form. Maybe so. MaybeContinue reading “Leafing”

Falling


Before I write anything meaningful — when has that ever happened — I owe a lot of you an apology. I don’t know how this happened, but I managed to turn off a lot of your posts. It dawned on me one day that I hadn’t heard from a number of you who I readContinue reading “Falling”

Fall Water


This is a quick post. Our supposedly rock solid never failing solar panels and massive storage batteries, failed. The company trotted right out when we called them. It’s some kind of condensed switch that toggle between the battery and the power center in the house. Or something like that. I guess it’s sort of aContinue reading “Fall Water”

Autumn Life


Another Virginia picture. How could I not make it? Oh yeah, I made it. Really made it. I made three different pictures and layered them. So, this isn’t really a photograph. It’s something else. Maybe it’s my art. I don’t know. I’m not exactly sure what art is in today’s world. I believe all artContinue reading “Autumn Life”

New Work


Creamy. That’s what photographers of a certain age call images like these. The shadows, mid tones and highlights are nicely balanced. There is no glaring contrast issues. This shouldn’t be mistaken for bokeh, which is the quality of the background of an image. Of course, bokeh is supposed to be Japanese. To the Japanese peopleContinue reading “New Work”
