They Might Be Lost


L et’s start with this. Thank you to the couple of you who reached out after yesterday’s post. And, even a bigger thank you to those who didn’t. Here’s the thing. I come from the school of thought that defines insanity as doing the same thing over and over again and hoping for a differentContinue reading “They Might Be Lost”

Autumn has the Purple Sock Blues…


F irst, the title. It’s a children’s song about autumn. It’s just weird enough for me to like it. The music is fun too. The picture is quintessential fall. All those golden colors contrasted against the evergreen leaves. That always makes my day. I hope this picture makes yours.

Fork In The Road


F inally. A leaf that looks like fall, or at least, that it fell. Sometimes around this place you have to be patient. That’s hard for me. I want it now even though I talk about letting the picture take you. Or, I say to stand in front of better stuff. What if there isn’tContinue reading “Fork In The Road”

Down River


W hat a nice warm fall day we had. I’m ready for the heat of summer to go away, but I’m not ready for the cold of winter to arrive. The light has been especially pretty. I did miss the sunset of sunsets on Saturday evening, but this is the time of year when oneContinue reading “Down River”

The Other Side Of Midnight


W ell, maybe. I’m referring to the title. After I made yesterday’s picture I got excited and went back out to see what I could see. I saw the picture you are seeing. Unfortunately, I mostly made vertical images. When I finally saw the totality of the photograph I realized a radical crop was inContinue reading “The Other Side Of Midnight”

Beautiful World

I chose a time somewhat close to dusk because, well you know, the light s usually pretty olden, If not that, then the light very golden. In the picture the lightContinue reading “Beautiful World”

Laughing


The things that make us who we are. All of those things. How we were raised. What we did when we were young. The things we did later. All of our actions and deeds. That’s who we are. Although I did many things, music was my greatest influencer. Deja Vu was re-released yesterday. That’s right,Continue reading “Laughing”

Day Breaks


The thing about going to bed early means that I awake too early. I mostly sleep around six hours a night. You can do the math. If I go to bed around 11 pm, well, you know. It’s a little maddening. It means that I haven’t gotten quite enough sleep. It also means that IContinue reading “Day Breaks”

You Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere


Golden light. I think every photographer dreams about it. If not, then the blue hour. I recently learned that I had two chances a day for both. There’s another one that starts about 4:30 in the morning. I didn’t even know there was a 4:30 in the morning. Alright. I stole a Bart Simpson line.Continue reading “You Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere”
