On This One Night


C ome darkness, come light. The photograph comes from New Mexico. The words come from Virginia. They seem to cover most of my life for the last 15 years. On this Christmas Eve and — soon to be — Day, I’d like to wish every one of you a Merry Christmas and a wonderful newContinue reading “On This One Night”

Mountain Home


Sometimes, while I lived in New Mexico I would take long, long drives just to explore and see things. It was on one of those day trips that I found this little country church. I stopped, walked around it and made a lot of pictures. Even though this picture isn’t the most detailed, I likeContinue reading “Mountain Home”

Out There in Blue


This is fun. I’m revisiting old work. I’m tinkering with it. And, showing it to you. There’s a secret to this picture. I made it during the day. The dusk-like quality came in post production. I wanted to see if I could do it. Apparently, I can. Now you know that the old saying, “aContinue reading “Out There in Blue”

A Little Change


A little different. I thought if I can manipulate a photograph into a kind of painting-like and grim piece of art, than I could go the other way and make it prettier. This is the result of that experiment. Often, necessity is the mother of invention. I made this picture with a camera that used aContinue reading “A Little Change”

Sandias. A Study in Color.


Well. I thought we were getting better. But, if chills aches and pains mean we are getting better… It’s a virus. I doubt a doctor’s visit will do much so we’ll have to tough it out, lay around and drink lots of water and do next to nothing. If I was feeling better that wouldContinue reading “Sandias. A Study in Color.”

An Evening Sky


This week. Whew. I was stumbling around in my files around trying to find a peaceful Sunday picture. I still want to keep my promise and publish Christmas pictures until the big day. But. But. But. I’m feeling pretty numb just about now. I don’t think I’m feeling much different from most of the peopleContinue reading “An Evening Sky”

Do Me Favor, Please?


I don’t normally ask for things like this. But, please vote for this picture. Here. http://www.bucketlistpublications.com/portfolio-view/travel-photo-contest-19/ I’ve entered it in a fellow blogger’s travel photo contest. The picture? It was made a few years ago in Albuquerque, New Mexico on the opening day of The International Balloon Fiesta. It was mostly a combination of luck and, well,Continue reading “Do Me Favor, Please?”

Pink-O-Boogie


I seem to be on a roll with Ry Cooder songs. Most of  these songs are from an album called I, Flathead. Strange desert, country music with a Ry Cooder twist. Makes me think of some of the stranger places that I’ve photographed along Route 66 for that project. So. These pictures were made inContinue reading “Pink-O-Boogie”
