Ghost Town


I showed this picture another similar one to a friend of mine who plays in the gallery world. He said these pictures are worth a lot in that world. I suppose, but I really don’t see it. I made these pictures because they were there to be made. Eventually, these pictures will become parts ofContinue reading “Ghost Town”

The Edge of Town


U rbex deluxe. I wrote that in the picture’s caption and I liked it so well that I made it the lead line. I’m thinking it could be a good name for a band. Anyway. My past is coming back to haunt me. I used to photograph a lot of urbex, or urban exploration forContinue reading “The Edge of Town”

It’s All Light


Fall. This is supposed to what it looks like. Bright orange, yellow and red. Leaves on the ground. That’s autumn. That’s fall. A change of seasons between summer and winter. The air cools. It dries out. I’m not dripping wet from humidity. I feel like being out a lot more. That’s what this picture isContinue reading “It’s All Light”

All A Reflection


Yesterday is gone. And, good riddance. It started bad and it ended worse. You didn’t see me here because my Cox modem/router failed. They wanted $75 because I didn’t have customer care. Okay, okay. I have a good idea of what this gear costs. But, when I said yes to having a technician visit, heContinue reading “All A Reflection”

Where The Beauty Is


Reflections. An image found within a photograph. That’s what you are looking at. An accidental picture. I didn’t see it. The dog didn’t see it. I made another reflection picture. I stooped down to do that. When I stood up I saw this one. Really, part of this one. I had to reposition myself soContinue reading “Where The Beauty Is”

Locks and Keys


All I know is that if you don’t use a thing, it probably won’t do it’s intended task. This open lock is a case in point. It’s intended to keep a little AT&T substation secure. That’s a telephone communications company for those who don’t know. The substation controls about 3,000 buildings. The last field serviceContinue reading “Locks and Keys”

It’s a Funny Thing


It’s a funny thing. The minute I stopped trying to make a picture and explaining myself the drought went away. If it was a drought. I think I was just bored. Here’s why. For the last few months I’ve been making pictures of my version of nature. Notice that. My version of nature. I’m notContinue reading “It’s a Funny Thing”

Walking


Another day. Another walk. Truth be told, these pictures are a couple of weeks old. I processed them. I tinkered with them. And, immediately forgot about them. I don’t know why. Sometimes, I get lucky. I make three or four pictures on one walk. I choose the one or two that I liked best atContinue reading “Walking”

The French Quarter


I took a stroll in The French Quarter. I made a few “traditional” pictures. I’m pretty sure that will make my agencies smile. Doing the work and walking around the Quarter made me happy. Yes. It was hot. It was humid. And, the eclipse was all but invisible there. But, it wasn’t crowded. And, theContinue reading “The French Quarter”
