NYC Morning


Once, In New York City near the Financial District, I turned around and saw this scene. Not quite. I saw people hustling their way through morning rush hour. The light was fine, but the motion was not. I went to a very old trick. I set the shutter speed for two seconds, and the fContinue reading “NYC Morning”

Colorful Time


My own personal fantasy. Color, light, reflection, refraction, dusk, blue hour, rain, water, sparkle, a thousand points of light, circles, shapes, shining, patterns. That’s what makes these pictures just a little different.

Modern Green


Green. You know I like green. And, you know I like to play around with my photographs. So, I did both. This may be a candidate for the botanicals juried contest. I know that this isn’t anywhere near the current color palate. But, art isn’t paint by numbers. Art is an expression of self. It’sContinue reading “Modern Green”

When Balloons Break Bad


I think I mentioned I downloaded some editing software on my Amazon Fire. The system is weird. It’s neither Mac or Windows based. It’s Amazon’s own software. You can download work around software that allows me to connect to my email among other things. The editing software does a lot of things no other portableContinue reading “When Balloons Break Bad”

The Road


S o. You liked yesterday’s picture of the rain and the mountain. Very cool. I like that picture a lot, too. You agree with a lot of people on Meta platforms. Between all of you there were well over 100 responses. That’s the kind of data that helps me a lot. No, you’re not justContinue reading “The Road”

The Beginning


T he beginning. The very first time. I was traveling in New York City with a couple of friends. When we got to Times Square I started making a few pictures. One of those friends, a well thought of National Geographic photographer — a real one, not one of those who had the luck toContinue reading “The Beginning”

Bring The Donut Army


B efore I tell you about New York City and these pictures let me tell you about the headline. I was listening to a podcast. One of the presenters told a bad joke. It was along the lines of what do donuts say to people who are eating them? There are dozens of us. ThisContinue reading “Bring The Donut Army”

Road Color


Y esterday’s post was a bit bleak, but it was honest. Authentic, as we say today. We saw an example of it on Thursday night, when the January 6 Committee laid the insurrection at Trump’s feet. And, at his feet it will stay. I’m sure he’ll be hopping mad. Too bad. It was an exerciseContinue reading “Road Color”
