Really Big Photograph


T his picture was made in New Mexico a long time back. I forgot about it. While I was digging around in my archives I stumbled upon it. I followed my usual rule of thumb. Tinker with it it until I can’t do anything more. I went beyond that. It was a mistake. So, IContinue reading “Really Big Photograph”

Questions


A rant. A slight rant. Mardi Gras parade season began last night with Krewe du Vieux walking through the French Quarter. In all the pictures that I saw I counted one mask, no social distancing. Many of the pictures were made by friends of mine who also didn’t wear masks. I think that in aboutContinue reading “Questions”

Fever Dreams


C onversation. It took me a while, but I finally figured something out. I say that photography and music are very similar in approach. And, they are. But. There is one huge difference. One that matters most. Conversation. When a musician plays with another musician they create a musical conversation. They talk to each otherContinue reading “Fever Dreams”

Rocksteady


D id I tell you that I hate WordPress? I hate it more everyday. They keep trying to dig money out of my wallet for services I don’t want. But, what I really want to talk about is The New York Times. They seem intent on prosecuting former wars with information everybody knew about exceptContinue reading “Rocksteady”

I Wish I Had A River


E very time. Every. Damn. Time. Whenever the boneheads at WordPress think that they are helping, they don’t. Yesterday’s post didn’t trigger untilI saw that it didn’t. Today. It took and act of God to upload the correct picture today. And, those drop caps? They are hidden behind a pulldown for typography. If that’s notContinue reading “I Wish I Had A River”

Have You Seen Me Lately?


T his picture was made of a little of this and a little of that. I mean it. There are three pictures in there lurking somewhere. None of them were made at the same time. One was made in New Mexico. One was made in New Orleans. And, one was made in Shrewsbury. The lastContinue reading “Have You Seen Me Lately?”

That’s Your Secret


L et’s see if this thing works today. In many ways, I’m becoming afraid to post. It’s become what bad thing is WordPress going to do to me today. I don’t know why I care. It’s not the most important thing do on any given day. I read an op-ed column in which the writerContinue reading “That’s Your Secret”

The Other Side of Midnight


A little something pretty for a Friday afternoon. I made this picture a while back, sometime in spring. I did the developing and post production and promptly forgot about it. I found it looking for something else just as I did yesterday. I reckon if I keep doing that I won’t ever have to takeContinue reading “The Other Side of Midnight”

Number One


T his is it. The very first one. The very first experiment in layering. I made this picture in 2010, in Albuquerque, New Mexico on my kitchen table. According to the EXIF data, I made it with an iPhone 4, in December. That means the weather was cold and there may have been snow onContinue reading “Number One”
