You Got Gold


A little flora and fauna New Mexican portfolio for your pleasure. Actually, I don’t believe any of the pictures depict either flora or fauna. These are wildflower pictures and tree pictures. They are distinctly New Mexican scenes. I’ve been digging into my archives and finding lost gems. Well, they are to me at least. I’veContinue reading “You Got Gold”

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”

Solid Rock


This is a tale of a confused mind, mine. I made this picture in my New Mexico days, It’s out west near the crossroads of I-40 and Route 66. Supposedly, those two roads are parallel so how could they cross. Trust me. They do. It’s just one of those things that happens in the desert.Continue reading “Solid Rock”

Memphis in Winter


I’ve been working a little in the past mostly because I keep finding “lost” images in my archives. I don’t understand something about that. I use a couple of cloud services for backup. One is Apple’s cloud. It’s because it’s on all my digital tools. The iMac, iPhone, iPad and a backup Samsung phone. EveryContinue reading “Memphis in Winter”

Number One


Wow! Our iPhone 14 Pro phones arrived yesterday. After doing all the things that it takes to transfer data, photos and apps from one phone to another, the light turned wonderful. I couldn’t do much about it immediately. Luckily, all of that took only about 30 minutes. Apple has transfer procedures down to a fineContinue reading “Number One”

The Real Thing


Streetcars and Growth Today I’ll table the A&I discussion for another day. That doesn’t mean that I’m giving up learning and growing. No. Never. Instead, today, I’m working on designing pages within the WordPress block system. Even though I’m still not much of a fan, I’m starting to understand how it works. It’s a complicatedContinue reading “The Real Thing”

Me And My Mountain


I thought that it would be a good idea to show you what it’s like to be on The Sandias rather than just show you the mountain range from a distance. I made this picture in late Autumn. It was so cold up there that I had to wear gloves until I actually was shooting.Continue reading “Me And My Mountain”

What Did I Do?


O nce again, I head back to Meta. I’ve been learning a lot about what they are doing with Instagram and Facebook. Yes, they are promoting more video and more content creators. I doesn’t sound like anything good. Photographers on Instagram are complaining that they can’t find the photographers they follow. They are looking forContinue reading “What Did I Do?”

All Bright and Glittering


A nother long strange trip in a dream. It went this way. I was trying to get out of a city that was falling apart. Buildings were crumbling or on fire. Crime was at an all time high. There were riots in the streets. The rioters defeated the police because the police were understaffed. IContinue reading “All Bright and Glittering”
