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”

An Invitation


P laying. Having fun. Tinkering. Messing around. That’s some of what we should be doing. But, often we get sucked into making a living. Or, we really get sucked into the gear of the thing. Experimenting and playing is what Storyteller is about, has always been about. Oh sure, a client or two has foundContinue reading “An Invitation”

Mother Angel


Art or not, I like this photograph. It was the last of the New Mexico pictures that I was showing you earlier. I decided to make it into something more after claiming that my PAD pictures were akin to photojournalism. So, I held it back. It’s been living on my desktop staring at me, remindingContinue reading “Mother Angel”

Into The Morning Light


Once upon a time. I lived in New Mexico. We lived there after Hurricane Katrina hammered New Orleans. We needed a little peace. Solitude. Quitetude. I don’t know how long we planned to stay. I thought maybe a year or two. It turned out to be almost five years. We heard the pounding of theContinue reading “Into The Morning Light”

In the Wind


Flying. “If man were meant to fly he’d have wings.” That’s what they said at the dawn of air travel. I wonder what they’d say about this helicopter that doesn’t have wings. Once upon a time when I actually worked for a living at a photo agency, I helped to create an archive called, “Big-Little,”Continue reading “In the Wind”

Taking Flight


New Orleans has a new airport. It hasn’t moved. A new terminal and runway system opened about two weeks ago right across a couple of runways from the old one. There were all sorts of complaints when the airport first opened. Curbside parking was a mess. There were very long lines to catch a taxi,Continue reading “Taking Flight”

Everything You Need


So. I stole the title from a brand new song by Doyle Bramhall II, featuring Eric Clapton. It was released yesterday. I heard it first, on my iPad Pro. That’s normally pretty good. It sounded tinny. So, I opened it up on the real gear. That did it. I used it as the background musicContinue reading “Everything You Need”

Flying Part Two


Into the sky we go. On a jet. On an airplane. Going somewhere. On business. For pleasure. Maybe going home. Some of us white knuckling the take off. Some of us not caring. Some of us drunk enough to board the plane. I posted a very heavily reworked picture of another plane taking off aContinue reading “Flying Part Two”

Over and Over


I’m taking a step forward. Or, back. It all depends on how you look at it. I haven’t been playing enough. I haven’t been experimenting enough. I haven’t been having enough fun. Like many people, in this age of nastiness, meanness and cruelty. I’ve been taking things far too seriously. So. While the dogarito wasContinue reading “Over and Over”
