Paris, Not Paris


P aris, France. Paris, Texas. There are 48 places named Paris in the world. I’d list them but you’d either get bored or crazy. There is this one. Paris on Las Vegas Boulevard, or as it is commonly called The Strip. This Paris is a casino, hotel and underground shopping mall that is designed andContinue reading “Paris, Not Paris”

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”

The Long Weekend


T his is a big holiday weekend. The Fourth of July celebrates the founding of The United States. After all of the Less-Than-Supreme-Court has done in the past two weeks I’m in no mood to celebrate.

Well, not really. I was doing one of my drive and shoot deals — not to be confused with another New OrleansContinue reading “Speed”

Once A Day


Well, I’m looking back. But, not so far back given that March just ended yesterday. Please take a look at my small collection of pictures from what appears to be my never-ending project called, PAD, or picture a day. I started this thing four years ago. Every time that I reach the end of oneContinue reading “Once A Day”

Quirky Western Pictures


When I take road trips, I sort of shape shift as I work. Sometimes I try to make pictures that are a little iconic. Sometimes I try to channel my best Ernst Haas. Sometimes I look for quirky subjects. These images are quirky. There is a little twist to them. Maybe there is a littleContinue reading “Quirky Western Pictures”
