All About


S ometimes I turn weird. I know what you are thinking. Whaddya mean sometimes? No, no, no. This picture is an example of turning weird. The image started out as pretty little flower picture then I got ahold of it. It turned into something out of one of my fever dreams. You may be askingContinue reading “All About”

Circles


We listen to podcasts. Kyria Swisher’s “Sway” is one of the best. She talked with Larry Ellison yesterday. He made the new “Top Gun” movie with Tom Cruise. Everything is done in camera. Tom Cruise put together a “learn to fly” program so that everybody who was supposed to fly could fly. He, like LarryContinue reading “Circles”

Every Kind of Game


I received an email from Uphold today. The company wanted to complete my information or they were going to remove me from their data base. What the hell is Uphold? So, I Googled it. Pro Tip # 1. Never use an email address to check something that you don’t recognize. Google it. Find it onContinue reading “Every Kind of Game”

Rust Never Sleeps

But, knowing nature always seeks stasis might help us to understand climate change better than we do. Some of the things that I’ve readContinue reading “Rust Never Sleeps”

And, I Knew, I Knew…


T his is a brand new picture. Yipee. As you know I haven’t been very motivated to make new work. Yesterday I was. Luckily, the light was with me. I took a little walk and did my usual trick. I photographed whatever I saw. I didn’t pre-edit which is always a mistake. Interestingly, while IContinue reading “And, I Knew, I Knew…”

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”

Who Knew?


L earn something new every day, they say. I did. I learned the name of this flower from a friend of mine who’s lived here forever. Care to guess? It’s an Okra blossom. I never noticed any pods, but even if I had I wouldn’t have known what I was looking at. I always thoughtContinue reading “Who Knew?”

The Shape Of Things


E xperiments are something that helps me to create art. Sometimes I succeed. Other times I fail. That’s okay. That’s how I learn. Instead of thinking the project was useless, I’ve learned over time that there are no useless days, nor are there useless projects. However, that doesn’t mean that I have to publish myContinue reading “The Shape Of Things”

Daring Mind


T echnology is never my friend. We’ve long had an Audible account. I thought I might like to listen to a book while I work. After all, podcasts and a book being read is about the same thing. Along comes Apple. Between their normally high rate of paranoia and the slowness of their server I’mContinue reading “Daring Mind”
