In Another World

Thailand. The name conjures all sorts of thoughts, myths and feelings. Truth be told, once you get outside of big cities the country is incredibly beautiful. The people are very friendly and helpful. And, the cost of living is very inexpensive. Oh, and the food is amazing, especially the street food. City life can beContinue reading “In Another World”

We Live Here

I wasn’t sure what to say about these pictures because many of them are commercial but a portrait is a portrait and as a photographer I’ve never been “slick.” I generally make pictures “my way.” That is not to say that I don’t listen to clients, creatives and editors. I reckon that you hire meContinue reading “We Live Here”

Something That I Forgot

L ike a bolt from the blue. It hit me. I’ve been struggling to figure out how to organize my curating. Without blowing my own horn, I’ve made so many Mardi Gras pictures over the years that I get overwhelmed looking at them. That bolt though. What is Mardi Gras really about? People. No matterContinue reading “Something That I Forgot”

About The People

A s Neil Young once wrote, “The things I’ve seen mean a lot.” He’s right, of course. That’s one reason that I’m a photographer. I want to show you what I’ve seen and hopefully what it means to me and to you. Of course, your meaning is made by your own life experiences. It’s reallyContinue reading “About The People”

I’m not sure they meant red, but I like the color. I had two goals in mind when I made this little portfolio.Continue reading “Red, Red, Red”

What Does It Mean To Travel?

W hat does it mean to travel? That’s a good question. For some it just means visiting a place “not to be missed.” For others it means trying to learn and understand different points of view. One is sort of rushed. The other is relaxed. For example the picture called “Father and Son” was madeContinue reading “What Does It Mean To Travel?”

Tell Me Why

T hey say it’s all in the eyes. That the eyes are the windows to the soul. Who am I to disagree? I haven’t been on the street for a long time. Y’all know why. It’s driving me crazy. I don’t like being cooped up. I’m not sure I’ll ever return to the street inContinue reading “Tell Me Why”

America’s Children

T his post started down a different path. I was going to post a whole bunch of flag pictures. As I was organizing this page I’ve been listening to an Audible book. The book is called, “How to Write One Song” by Jeff Tweedy, the founder and front man of the band Wilco. The bookContinue reading “America’s Children”

Here I Am

“Life doesn’t wave as it’s speeding by. Better grab on fast and hold on tight. And don’t ever forget to fight this good fight. Here I am.” It’s a calling. I make pictures for myself first, and then for everybody else. I’m there for myself but being there for everybody else comes in a closeContinue reading “Here I Am”
