Happy Place


I’ve been to a lot of places. Maybe too many. Even though the farm is truly beautiful and I am very happy to be here, this place, in this picture, is truly my happy place. Look at it. This picture was made in early fall. Isn’t that something? So? Why aren’t we there, rather thanContinue reading “Happy Place”

You Got Gold


A little flora and fauna New Mexican portfolio for your pleasure. Actually, I don’t believe any of the pictures depict either flora or fauna. These are wildflower pictures and tree pictures. They are distinctly New Mexican scenes. I’ve been digging into my archives and finding lost gems. Well, they are to me at least. I’veContinue reading “You Got Gold”

Friendly Ghosts


Sunday, a good day to start a new project. The photographs were all made in New Mexico. They came out of my deep archives. I’ve built a small portfolio of these pictures, all the while wondering what was I thinking for not looking at them closely. Yeah sure, a little time and space adds aContinue reading “Friendly Ghosts”

Time Passages


You are looking at a slightly renewed New Mexican picture. Eastern New Mexico, that is east of the Sandias and Sangre de Cristo Mountains, looks nothing like the west which is high desert. In the east, the scenery is all grass and farm lands as the state reaches into western Colorado, which doesn’t look anythingContinue reading “Time Passages”

Old Stories


When I was very young, a boy, my parents thought it was a good idea for some of us to spend the summer in Brooklyn. We traded a balmy summer in Long Beach where The Pacific Ocean was just a few miles away for the hot and humid streets of South Brooklyn. We always tookContinue reading “Old Stories”

Solid Rock


This is a tale of a confused mind, mine. I made this picture in my New Mexico days, It’s out west near the crossroads of I-40 and Route 66. Supposedly, those two roads are parallel so how could they cross. Trust me. They do. It’s just one of those things that happens in the desert.Continue reading “Solid Rock”

Oh Sure


A friend of mine and sometimes photographer posted something on Facebook that caught my attention. It is balloon fiesta time in Albuquerque so he wrote something along the lines of all the pictures look the same. Oh nonsense. If you open your eyes I’m pretty sure that you’ll find something a little different. I didContinue reading “Oh Sure”

I Said What I Said


I started out trying to post an entirely different picture. WordPress had other ideas. I pressed the upload button and the little wheel started turning and turning… until the computer could do no more and crashed. Twice. I rebooted twice. I gave up. I rebooted again. When this happens it usually means WordPress is doingContinue reading “I Said What I Said”


What Remains Home again. This picture is not of home. This was made in New Mexico while a brush fire was burning in the distance. Pretty soon it wasn’t in the distance. It was staring at us. So, we beat feet. I had to know what happened so I returned to the scene. This pictureContinue reading
