Really Big Photograph


T his picture was made in New Mexico a long time back. I forgot about it. While I was digging around in my archives I stumbled upon it. I followed my usual rule of thumb. Tinker with it it until I can’t do anything more. I went beyond that. It was a mistake. So, IContinue reading “Really Big Photograph”

Everything Changes


E verything changes. Yes, it does. I was reading another blog called World Nomad News. Their magazine is called Get Lost at emag.getlostmagazine.com They are a much bigger than Storyteller. They usually suggest places to travel to and what to do when you get there. I think they publish monthly, mostly because the site isContinue reading “Everything Changes”

Out On The Road


My WordPress buddy Tim Allen said that he hoped this worked out for me. Me too. But, what he doesn’t realize is that this better work out for me because if it doesn’t he’ll have nothing but problems since WordPress is changing everything. One helper told me that since technology has changed over the yearsContinue reading “Out On The Road”

In The Colors


T he reckoning. I guess that it’s stuck in my head now. I’ve been having dreams about people from my past. Of course, we look like we did 20, 30, 40, 50 years ago. Mostly the dreams have been pleasant as we zing around through time and space. Interestingly, we aren’t stuck in the past.Continue reading “In The Colors”

Long May You Run


O nce upon a time, in a far away place, I took this picture. I forgot about it. Amazon Pictures found it. It was something I saw after lunch with a friend, as I was walking to my car. I stopped for a few minutes and photographed the hell out of it. I used myContinue reading “Long May You Run”

Somewhere Under Heaven


T his is a New Mexico picture. Sometimes I just see shapes and I want to see what they look when I photograph them. I’d forgotten this picture until Amazon found it some buried sub-archive. Boy, was I happily surprised. I’d tell you that this is an adobe wall, but it is not. It is someContinue reading “Somewhere Under Heaven”

Theme For An Imaginary Western


D o you remember what I said yesterday about November 21 being the start of my year? Well, I started that. After some thought I decided that I wanted to take a look back at my traveling life. This does two things. You get to see photographs that you might never have seen. You know.Continue reading “Theme For An Imaginary Western”
