Confusion Wheel


Y es, it’s true. I wrote that caption which says customized nature. It’s true because I performed so much digital editing on this tree that it might not look anything like the original. That really wasn’t my intent but it looked good at the time so I went with it. I probably should have reworkedContinue reading “Confusion Wheel”

Day Breaks


The thing about going to bed early means that I awake too early. I mostly sleep around six hours a night. You can do the math. If I go to bed around 11 pm, well, you know. It’s a little maddening. It means that I haven’t gotten quite enough sleep. It also means that IContinue reading “Day Breaks”

Sunrise, Sunrise, I Can See It


Sometimes it’s all light and color with just a hint of subject matter. Sometimes it’s more. This picture straddles both, leaning to the previous. It’s sort of musical. That’s just as well. It’s been a musical sort of day. The musicians in my life have been playing sort of tag with me and I withContinue reading “Sunrise, Sunrise, I Can See It”

Just Dandy


Just Dandy. See what I did there? Spring arrived. The time of allergies. The time of sneezing. Not from this little guy, but from Live Oaks. So much pollen. More pollen in years. At least, that’s what the weather person said who comes on at six. Everybody is sneezing around here. Even the dogs. NoneContinue reading “Just Dandy”

It’s All Too Sureal


Surreal? That’s probably the least of things around here. It really comes down to people, who as Jerry Seinfeld once said, are the worst. Even though all St. Patrick’s Day parades were cancelled. And, even though the governor put a limitation on crowd sizes, some people just had to gather on Magazine and Bourbon StreetsContinue reading “It’s All Too Sureal”

Mystical


Morning view. Another scene that I was lucky enough to photograph. It’s sort of like yesterday’s picture, but this one feels a little mysterious, moody or even scary. At least, it does to me.  I keep expecting to see an evil little troll appear somewhere. So. A little local news. Most of you know aboutContinue reading “Mystical”

They Say It’s Winter


Winter. I have a friend in Milwaukee who was complaining because his four year old snow blower broke down yesterday. I have friends further east who were just waiting until the big snowstorm reached them. Even in Seattle, where the weather is fairly mild, the streets were tangled by snowfall. Not down here. Oh no.Continue reading “They Say It’s Winter”

Sometimes I Do


I don’t usually post a picture from the same take two days in a row unless it’s from an event like a second line. I sort of feel like I’m either cheating or not doing my work very well. But, an old friend of mine who is rarely on Facebook commented about yesterday’s work. SheContinue reading “Sometimes I Do”

The Swamp


See? A swamp. Where we live. Well, kinda. Sorta. A real swamp would likely be very deep and wet this time of year. Most of the real swamps have been developed. Into concrete. But, here and there, you can find some little groves of what came before us. This one takes about ten minutes toContinue reading “The Swamp”
