Deep, Dark, And Dreamless


T his isn’t my usual style of Monday photograph. No matter. I like this picture and that’s good enough. It’s probably more about me than I know. It was made at night, which is rare these days. Especially when I’m just using a phone. I suppose I could call it photographer’s luck but luck favorsContinue reading “Deep, Dark, And Dreamless”

Really, Super Deluxe, Brand New


P hotographer’s luck. I tell you. That’s how this picture came about. I went outside to take the trash out and to water the dogs. I looked up and thought “holy sh*t, look at that moon.” Luckily, I had my phone with me. What’s lucky about that? I always have my phone with me. IContinue reading “Really, Super Deluxe, Brand New”

Little Tiny Changes


A photographer friend of mine suggested that I talk to a new stock — not stock — agency. I’ve been far away from that for years. There are too many photographs, too many photographers and not enough return on investment. This agency claims to be different. And their licensing prices are very high. More moneyContinue reading “Little Tiny Changes”

Sometimes at Night


S ometimes, I talk about experimental pictures. Mostly that just means I’ve done something odd in post production. Not this time. I wanted to learn something about my smartphone camera at night. How would it hold up from a proper exposure standpoint? What would happen to the color? Would the image remain sharp enough. TheContinue reading “Sometimes at Night”

Into The Mystic


S heesh. I started this post and forgot about it. Until now. I try to post at noon my time. Obviously, I’m late. Very late. Sorry about that. Let’s talk about stupidity and failure. There is a guy who posts as NOLAphotoguild on Instagram. Today he wrote an eight page screed about freedom. I betContinue reading “Into The Mystic”

Hundreds of Ways


Y esterday was almost useless. Since I believe there are no useless days, that’s saying something. I had one of those days where everything went wrong. Luckily, they were little things. The espresso machine started the day, by doing something funky. The mouse batteries died without warning. Two lightbulbs burned out. And, so it wentContinue reading “Hundreds of Ways”

Not Dark Yet


T he title comes from Bob Dylan. The picture is my third try at publishing. There were no problems. I just didn’t like the picture. I tried reworking the first one, but that didn’t fly. I may try reworking it from the original. I well over defined the clouds on the processed images which madeContinue reading “Not Dark Yet”

Why Would You Wait?


A brand new picture. Imagine that. I went for a walk when the light was right and I started having fun. I just kept making pictures until I was finished, which took a while. I think that I wanted to take the long way home as they say. The funny thing was that the moreContinue reading “Why Would You Wait?”

Been In The Storm


T his post was inspired by a band called Ranky Tanky. They are a Gullah band from the Lowcountry area of South Carolina. They play a kind of country jazz. I’m always amazed at how many of their songs I know. Songs that were covered by The Rolling Stones and Little Feat. The good newsContinue reading “Been In The Storm”
