Three For The Road


I’m a member of a group called Frames. The concept and every bit of the work is done by a Polish photographer called Thomaz. He’s got a good eye for curation. He’s good teacher and publisher of a book-like magazine called, what else, Frames. He likes to make pictures of very simple things. For instance,Continue reading “Three For The Road”

Magical Quarter


I’m still working on my phone. They tell me this is the new world. Everyday is the new world or so it seems. I made this picture in The French Quarter. In New Orleans. Then, I played with the file to make it look like I was painting with light. That’s what you are seeing.Continue reading “Magical Quarter”

Singing


I made this picture a few years back at a county fair. Originally, this was a horizontal photograph, but I realized that his hand was doing something, but you can’t tell what. So, I decided to do what I had been taught in photojournalism school, crop to the heart of the image in order toContinue reading “Singing”

I started thinking aboutContinue reading “Light”

Sooner or Later

Gates of Eden


Y ‘all really like yesterday’s post. Strong black and white images can really draw your attention in a place where almost everything is some sort of color. So. As usual, I turned left while I had you looking right. This picture is really accidental. I was trying some layering. I used one setting and theContinue reading “Gates of Eden”
