Blue Moon


Don’t Give Up


This picture took a lot of time to work on because it was improperly exposed. It was banding. When I darkened it, it became too dark to view. I went backwards and tried to lighten it. That made it worse. I was determined not to give up. So, I didn’t. I basically made a messContinue reading “Don’t Give Up”

Really, Super Deluxe, Brand New


P hotographer’s luck. I tell you. That’s how this picture came about. I went outside to take the trash out and to water the dogs. I looked up and thought “holy sh*t, look at that moon.” Luckily, I had my phone with me. What’s lucky about that? I always have my phone with me. IContinue reading “Really, Super Deluxe, Brand New”

Into The Mystic


S heesh. I started this post and forgot about it. Until now. I try to post at noon my time. Obviously, I’m late. Very late. Sorry about that. Let’s talk about stupidity and failure. There is a guy who posts as NOLAphotoguild on Instagram. Today he wrote an eight page screed about freedom. I betContinue reading “Into The Mystic”

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”

Darkness After Day


A s long as there’s a sky turning in the darkness after day… everything worth knowing is in the sound of your old D-35. I borrowed these words from a song. A D-35 is a particular make of a Martin guitar. It’s fairly rare. Now you know. I actually didn’t choose these words. They choseContinue reading “Darkness After Day”

Don’t Let Your Goodbye Stand


“U nderneath the heavens above.” That’s a line from a Bob Dylan song. I heard it just as I started writing. So, I thought, “Why not?” Y’all know that I listen to music while I write, yes? I’m playing a Spotify play list called Summer Rewind. I’m trying to think about what summer this particularContinue reading “Don’t Let Your Goodbye Stand”

Luna


W ordpress has beaten it out of me. After yesterday’s fiasco I think I’ll go back to simple things because WordPress really doesn’t like photographers. Instead of fostering community growth and spirit by suggesting we work together on projects, they want writers to use Upsplash if they need photographs. Upsplash is a portal. Photographers uploadContinue reading “Luna”

I Think I


M ostly, I say that a picture needs a little post production work to turn into something presentable. Not this time. What I saw is what you get. Better yet, I decided to take a little walk because I’m mostly trapped inside. I looked up and there it was. The moon poking through a wispContinue reading “I Think I”
