Further


B ack to Shanghai. China. This is a photograph made on film. Fuji Velvia, if I remember correctly. So, it’s a classic. Or, just plain old. I worked there for a very short time. Before I had to be anywhere I would go for a walk in the morning, mostly to Old Town. I wasContinue reading “Further”

Not California


R escued from my archives. I found this picture while I was looking for something else. That’s sort of the way I make pictures, on the way to some place else. The funny thing about the picture is that the subject doesn’t exist. Not anymore. It was a designer’s idea as part of the landscapingContinue reading “Not California”

Sometimes, In The Evening


S ometimes it pays to cover old ground. One day I drove out to an odd section of the Ninth Ward. I parked as close to the levee as i could get and walked into the neighborhood which is known as Holy Cross. I saw the wonderful light and stopped. I made about three framesContinue reading “Sometimes, In The Evening”

Reflections Off The Moon


Lately, I’ve been waking up way too early. That would be fine, but the all seeing dog is ready to go. I haven’t even had a coffee and she’s waiting by the door. Since she’s usually right, out we go. Sometimes, but not always, pictures like this result from our early morning walks. This pictureContinue reading “Reflections Off The Moon”

Mother of Muses


So, people are saying spring is finally upon us. Down here in The Gulf Coast we’ve had spring for about a month. But, in the last day spring exploded. The greens are greener. The flowers are vibrant. Leaves have just exploded out of their slumber. Luckily, it’s still cool bordering on cold. In a monthContinue reading “Mother of Muses”

On And On It Goes


Luckily for all of us, WordPress made a lot of changes in the block system. They announced it today. I use the word luckily in a snarky tongue in cheek way. I am convinced they “improve” their apps because they want to keep their staff employed. I guess during these pandemic times that’s a goodContinue reading “On And On It Goes”

The Wheel


The wheel is turning and it won’t slow down. Can’t back up and you can’t stand still I learned a lot today. I learned it before breakfast. I watched The President’s discussion about the horrific number of pandemic dead in our country. 500,000. That’s 120,000 more than the city of New Orleans. I listened toContinue reading “The Wheel”

Into The Morning Light


Once upon a time. I lived in New Mexico. We lived there after Hurricane Katrina hammered New Orleans. We needed a little peace. Solitude. Quitetude. I don’t know how long we planned to stay. I thought maybe a year or two. It turned out to be almost five years. We heard the pounding of theContinue reading “Into The Morning Light”

Just Want To See


Pastel Sky, looking like a water color. That wasn’t my intention, but that’s what happened. In this day of all things digital photographers are trying to make their work look like anything but photography. I understand the need to take things to the next level. I do it myself more times than not. Just don’tContinue reading “Just Want To See”
