Where I Like It Best


Don’t ask me. I have no idea why the doors and windows are upside down. I just chalk it up to living in the Land of Enchantment. Somebody really got enchanted when they were working on this building. I found this place one day after having lunch in the barrio, which is located well pastContinue reading “Where I Like It Best”

Hot Burrito Number One


My kind of photograph. Lots of big, bold, bright color. I didn’t actually see quite as much color when I stopped to press the button, but I did see the tree reflection. That’s what caught my attention. You know me. I’m of the opinion that anything can be a picture. Not in all light. Or,Continue reading “Hot Burrito Number One”

This Day


On a day like this one. Back in 1953. At 10pm. I made my appearance. Here I am in 2020, one of the worst years in at least a century, still going. I’ve pretty much lost any sense of time. The calendar means very little. Clocks keep turning. The only sense of time that IContinue reading “This Day”

I Just Don’t Know


2020. That’s all I know. If it can happen, it will happen. Apparently this guy was sitting in a car in the Louisiana heat and he died. I was so hot that his skin seared off and we are left with bones. Dem bones. That’s the best I can come up with on short notice.Continue reading “I Just Don’t Know”

Remains


On a very humid walk. We found these branches that were what remained of our storms. Wasn’t sure about them until I photographed them and started processing them. Once I started stripping them back and allowed their natural color to emerge I knew the picture might work. That’s one of my secret sauces. I don’tContinue reading “Remains”

Thinking of a Place


Junkyards. I don’t know what got me thinking about this. Maybe it’s because I often watch documentaries on various streaming services. I’ve internalized the broken, the abandoned and the left behind. If truth be told, I’ve poking around abandoned stuff long before the dawn of Netflix. It’s always interested me. It could be because whenContinue reading “Thinking of a Place”

Metal Work


I found it. Can I keep it? I know this guy. He is an old school junk man. He drives around looking for stuff that is mostly made of metal. He sells some for scrap. He sells some stuff to repair men who restore old things that can be sold inexpensively. His business is fairlyContinue reading “Metal Work”

The Junk Project


The junk project. I had a good week. Not only did I find a couple of pictures for the summer project, but I found a couple of pictures for my junk and water projects. I’m not saying that everything I photographed will make it into the final cut, but having many pictures from which toContinue reading “The Junk Project”

I Find Things


Looking around. Looking for subjects for my various projects — abandoned railroads, abandoned furniture, and unique examples of water — leads me to other places and things. Like this one. This is a gated fence, probably for road workers, that has been broken wide open. By itself, it’s meaningless. In the context of what youContinue reading “I Find Things”
