All a Dream


Night time, not in the switching yard. Things change at night. Things look a little mysterious. Things look a little spooky. And, night photography can hide a multitude of sins. I wasn’t hiding anything this time. It was mostly just timing because guess who wanted to go for a walk at night time. We normallyContinue reading “All a Dream”

It’s Gonna Hurt Sometimes


Lemme tell you a story about us old folk. There is a movement afoot in the Millennial world to attack us old folk. They have a new hashtag and general comment. If they don’t like what you say, they say, “OK Boomer.” Ageist much? Last night I was scrolling around Twitter when when of theContinue reading “It’s Gonna Hurt Sometimes”

NSU


Driving. Motion. Movement. The combination of others moving and my own motion helped to create some kind of impressionistic art. And, a lot of Ws. I reckon that the Ws were created by NOLA’s potholed streets. Hit a hole and down the car goes. So too, with the other cars around me.  Up. Down. Up.Continue reading “NSU”

Motion in New Orleans


All motion. For years I made a career out of pictures like this one. Motion. Movement. Energy. It wasn’t hard to do. About 1/4 second at f/5.6 and I’d make a picture likes this one. But, that was the film days. When digital photography came into being sharpness was everything. That’s why mega pixels becameContinue reading “Motion in New Orleans”

New Orleans Parades


This isn’t that. I was going to talk about New Orleans culture, but a fire got in the way. You know where. In Paris. France. Notre Dame burned. Early on, it looked like it might be a total loss. Now, we know it’s not. Already 400,000,000 Euros have been pledged to its rebuilding. Just asContinue reading “New Orleans Parades”

Forever Young


This wasn’t today’s picture. At least it’s not what I planned. I thought that it was a little too bleak for a Sunday picture. I read a lot. Especially on Sunday morning when I have a little more time. I probably shouldn’t do that. There was a story that appeared on Twitter with a linkContinue reading “Forever Young”

Motion


Mardi Gras Parades. All about motion. Movement. Energy. Often, it’s hard to show that. Motion is thought of being better portrayed on video. I don’t make videos. I do it using still cameras. I’ve done that since the days of film. For a time, I made my career on that. The trick is to findContinue reading “Motion”

Circles


Brand new. This picture. I’m late today because I wanted to make a new picture on one of our walks. I’m not really out of new work. It’s just that nothing in my new files moves me. Another day. A new look. A change in thinking. Which brings me to this. We began Mardi GrasContinue reading “Circles”
