Beads. They are everywhere. This time of year. And, most times of the year. These are fresh. Bright. Shiny. New. As the year rolls on they will begin to fade. If they manage to hang around for a couple of years they will show their true colors. Black. Gray. White. For now, they sparkle in theContinue reading “Beads”

Weird Windows

Oh, I dunno. This is what happens when you walk. When you look in windows. At details. I’ll let you guess which kind of spiritual belief this group of icons represents. It may not be what you are thinking. For those of you who are wondering about avoiding reflection in glass, it’s pretty simple. If youContinue reading “Weird Windows”

St. Roch

Where to start? How about this? WordPress, stop making things better. Leave things alone. You only make them worse. This post was supposed to contain three pictures. But, for some reason, after uploading two pictures, WordPress won’t let me upload the last picture. Well, it uploads fine. It posts as a question mark. I give up.Continue reading “St. Roch”

Out There in the Sugarcane

Yesterday. Strange day. We needed to work. We are in mourning for a friend who passed rather unexpectantly. So, it was one of those the work is the prayer days.

Rebirth (Spring)

Spring. Rebirth. Central City. Symbolism. Icons. Yellow. Optimism. Cheerful. Hope. Green. Balance. Harmony. Growth. After two years of working in Central City, I see change. For the better. Mostly good. Maybe this picture sums it up more eloquently than I could ever write. That’s fine with me. I’m a photographer who scribbles sometimes. Not a writerContinue reading “Rebirth (Spring)”

Spring. Rebirth. Green.

It’s Spring. I thought we could use something bright, pretty and happy on Sunday. I actually made this picture in The Bywater on St. Joseph’s Day. It sure is wonderful that after a pretty cold winter — for us — and a very cold trip to “The Frozen North,” that just as spring rolled around,Continue reading “Spring. Rebirth. Green.”

That’s All Folks

Another Carnival Season comes to a close. I hope those of you who celebrated had a good time. For the rest of you, maybe next year. It’s really worth it.

Little Christmas Details

I was telling a friend of mine that sometimes the most story-telling picture is a detail shot. You sorta get to the heart of things by staying away from the overall scene and focusing on a small area. This picture is maybe a little wider than I’d normally shoot for a detail shot, but color,Continue reading “Little Christmas Details”
