Magenta Shadows


S pring. Color. Sometimes it’s muted. Mostly it’s bright. It livens up a muted scene. It’s not quite this purple, but we’ll talk about that next door. I tried my best not to read the news, or much news. That proved to be impossible at this time in our history. I am amazed at theContinue reading “Magenta Shadows”

Rust Never Sleeps


R ust never sleeps. Nature always seeks stasis. That may be the one thing you need to know. Oh sure, there’s the stuff we learn in school and in the world. But, knowing nature always seeks stasis might help us to understand climate change better than we do. Some of the things that I’ve readContinue reading “Rust Never Sleeps”

The Dreamer


D reams came to me last night or early this morning. They were about this place. Sorta. In my dream everything was dusty, sort of a tannish brown. It was hard to breath without a mask. People were getting sick in the dusty atmosphere. It doesn’t a weatherman to know which way this wind blows.Continue reading “The Dreamer”

Further In


Sometimes, it’s worth the time to look inside. Of anything. I’ve been looking inside myself since mid-lockdown. We have no need to go there today. Looking inside of things that may be near and dear to its is another matter entirely. For me, that really is only three things. Photography, art, and music. For sure,Continue reading “Further In”

Wandering


I believe that by being pain free for the past week or so is resulting in much better seeing. I think my consumption of necessary pain meds created a sort of brain fog. That’s not to say I was walking around loaded out of my mind. I wasn’t. I didn’t. And, I don’t. But, thereContinue reading “Wandering”

Souls Dirge


How it began. I talked to a friend of mine who suggested that I make some changes in how I look at my world. His thinking is solid. I fear that I’ve already worked through the process, at least as far as Storyteller goes. He did offer me another idea. In order to do thatContinue reading “Souls Dirge”

He Thinks So


Some assembly required. That’s what was needed on this artistic experiment. In an effort to tie some life lesson to this picture, I think that most of our lives require some assembly. I’m not just ruminating about the times when the cracks appear, but when the light shines in as well. In fact, if youContinue reading “He Thinks So”

Not Too Late


Labor Day. We honor our workers, no matter what their work may be. However, I fear that like our military, we could be described describe as “suckers” and “losers.” After all, why work for a living when you can scam for a living? But, that’s not what I want to talk about today. I’d ratherContinue reading “Not Too Late”

The Calling


Staying True. I’m having a conversation with some Photoshelter folks about the so-called Photographers Bill of Rights via a comment section. Most of it concerns photojournalism. That’s where my career started. That’s where my heart lies. I read the entire document. If I’m going to talk about it, I should read it. That’s only fair.Continue reading “The Calling”
