Everywhere and Nowhere


I worked as close as I could. I cropped as much as I could. I softened it as much as I could because sharp was too sharp and this image finally revealed itself. Bright and bold, yellow and starting to get old. See what I did there? No. I can’t write poetry or lyrics. But,Continue reading “Everywhere and Nowhere”

There Is No Soul Behind it


There has been a pretty spirited discussion across multiple socials about AI and photography. The question is simple enough. Is AI photography? Most of the photographers who responded said, “no.” Many photographer’s comments showed that they had no idea what the hell they are talking about, That’s the same problem most of the world hasContinue reading “There Is No Soul Behind it”

Children In Bloom


I was thinking about the rest of my photographic career when I stumbled upon a photographer called David Carol. What caught my eye was something in his biography.

Age Quod Agis


The headline isn’t a typo. It’s Latin. I’m pretty sure that only one of you who comments regularly knows what it means. No worries.

Quiet


The end of summer. Little details. Seeing. Looking. Feeling. That’s all this picture really is about. I saw the leaf on an outdoor table. I framed it in a way that you could see the leaf and see the table. Then I went to work on it. That’s it. Old business. You’re gonna laugh. RememberContinue reading “Quiet”

Shapes and Shadows


Sticky days and very hot nights. I’ve noticed that I don’t see a lot of my neighbors. There’s a good reason for this. Everybody is tired of our super sticky days. With the last storm, the humidity has increased to almost unbearable levels. I call it a four t-shirt, three shower, day. They stay insideContinue reading “Shapes and Shadows”

Let There Be Light


One of those things. That you walk by a hundred times. You never really notice. It’s become invisible to you. You see it. It doesn’t register. Then. Maybe the light was right. Or, a reflection caught your eye. Something happened. Something changed. You see the thing you didn’t see. That’s what happened in this picture.Continue reading “Let There Be Light”

On A Summer Sunday


A little peace on a hot summer Sunday. A day for thoughts and reflections. I’ll leave you to them. Or, you can jump in the pool and start the Independence Day right. Right from the start of the week, which is what usually happens when the holiday falls right in the middle of what isContinue reading “On A Summer Sunday”
