Just Another Sunday


T his picture was made during one of the last times that I actually travelled around New Orleans. I went to the hospital to get my second vaccination against CoVid. Little did I know the trip and the injection was meaningless because of my “other” illness. At least one good thing came out of this.Continue reading “Just Another Sunday”

The Hard Way


T here is a group of photographic artists who have seemed to have determined what contemporary fine art photography should look like. It looks something like this picture, but probably more precious in concept and explanation. A friend of mine, a good photographer, has started to make inroads into that world. And, I have toContinue reading “The Hard Way”

Have You Seen Me Lately?


T his picture was made of a little of this and a little of that. I mean it. There are three pictures in there lurking somewhere. None of them were made at the same time. One was made in New Mexico. One was made in New Orleans. And, one was made in Shrewsbury. The lastContinue reading “Have You Seen Me Lately?”

No Country


O bviously, I made this picture a while ago, like in winter. I tucked it away and you’ve never seen it. I’m starting to work through that collection now. Unfortunately for me, these pictures are scattered throughout the last few months which means that I have to find them. Hard to do when you’ve forgottenContinue reading “No Country”

Coming Home


T oday got rolling just about the time I got up. I told you that I was going to get busy. I didn’t think that I meant right this second. I thought I could cruise into the work a little bit at a time. Silly me. I made my first mistake when I started listeningContinue reading “Coming Home”

Postcard Blues


You could see it coming from miles away. The storm. The cold. The wind. Luckily, we didn’t have heavy rainfall. Maybe a couple of inches. But, we are having a cold spell that is as cold and long as anything in recent memory. I’ll tell you more about this picture in the right hand column.Continue reading “Postcard Blues”

Seven Days From The Big Day


Light and color. Rather the lack of color. I always say that when you have to explain the picture that you didn’t do a good job. I guess I didn’t. It’s two members of the Krewe of Cleopatra dancing in the street. I guess what I really like is the movement passing through the veryContinue reading “Seven Days From The Big Day”

The Forest For The Trees


An accidental picture. I wasn’t even thinking about pictures when I looked up and saw this scene. The gray sky was softly illuminating it which gave the trees a sort of old fashioned glow. In fact, in one version of this, I didn’t care about keeping the color true. It looked like something from theContinue reading “The Forest For The Trees”

Out In The Rain


The rain. Running errands is a good time for to make pictures in the rain. I just have to be a little careful, and be considerate of other drivers who are probably grumbling at the rain… and me. I’m not sure how well you can see it, but there is a pickup truck in frontContinue reading “Out In The Rain”
