A Study In Rural New Mexico
More design experiments. Somewhere deep inside I have ideas percolating around and around. I just have to find them and figure them out. You all are the beneficiaries. Enjoy what you are and let me know what you think. Please.

Finally. A real autumn sky, one with low yellow light. Light that peeks through the clouds and paints everything in front of it orange. One that turns the dusk sky dark blue, bordering on black. That’s what we saw on a late afternoon walk that turned into almost night. The all seeing dog was sleeping…
Quiet times. Normally The French Quarter is noisy. People are walking around in all states of decay. Some are tired. Some are lost. Many are drunk. Every now and then, you can find a beautiful stillness on the old cobbled streets. Both times of day have golden light and long shadows. The most predictable time…

Painted sky. A particular kind of summer sky. If you aren’t looking up, it’s likely that you’ll miss it. If you don’t see light, and color, it’s like that you won’t get it. I was talking to a somebody that I know a little. I was describing what I saw. She looked at me with…
It’s still pretty hot and humid. However, the light is changing. The sun is lower in the sky. Shadows and surfaces are being illuminated in really pretty ways.

I don’t mean to be doubling up, but since your response was so good I thought I would share this with my Storyteller friends too. This picture is…
Yes. It Really Is…

The light is ugly. The rain has been heavy. Normally, you know what I say to that. “When the weather turns bad, the pictures get good.” Normally. But, not these past few days. The light has been beyond ugly. Flat. Dark. Heavy. Heavy? Oh wait, that’s the very humid quality of the air. It’s a…
