Goin’ Back


G oing back even further. Back to around 1980 to be exact. Back to a time when pictures were made on film. Black and white film called Tri-X. Its ISO was 400 but it could be manipulated in exposure and development. I’d like to say that those were the days. But, they weren’t. I workedContinue reading “Goin’ Back”

One Moment


We were hanging out waiting for the second line to begin. I was standing next a young woman, when an older woman came over to chat. She said the younger woman was her daughter. I asked them to pose together. Young miss had to be persuaded a little. Just a little. She was flattered to beContinue reading “One Moment”

Super Sunday No. 1


You could say that I’m confused. I have three fairly important shoots to show you. Where do I start? How do I start? I did the easiest thing. I cherry picked for today. I haven’t had time to curate, let alone develop, and finish the images that I made this weekend. I just picked aContinue reading “Super Sunday No. 1”

The Welder


I don’t always made normal portraits. In fact, I rarely do. You’ll never confuse me with a studio photographer who shoots nice family portraits. That’s okay. For all of us. But, there is a great backstory here. When I was working for The New River Newspapers in Virginia, the advertising staff came up with anContinue reading “The Welder”

August 29, 2005


Eight years. Funny how time flies. As you know, I rarely publish pictures or words that aren’t mine. I do that for a number of reasons. Most of them are mostly about artistic integrity. Some are for legal reasons. Others are simply because I don’t see the point in aggregating or curating other’s work. ThereContinue reading “August 29, 2005”

Three


These three pictures are the last of my Lower Ninth Ward visit. I have a few more images from that day, but it’s getting to be time to move on. Not to worry. I’ll go back again. And again. And… again. I’m not sure what more I can add to this post. I think, onceContinue reading “Three”

Back To Memphis


I’ve been doing a number of projects at one time. That includes traveling, photographing, managing someone else and working on a huge amount of post production of files that I’ve produced over the past month. When it comes to post production, mostly I’ve been working on the Memphis blues project. I work on it asContinue reading “Back To Memphis”

Sweet Caroline


So. I know what you are wondering. “What’s the deal with Sweet Caroline?” Well. I never saw or heard or anything like it. But first, a little back story. This is the ‘titRex Parade. No. It doesn’t mean what you think it does. The name is short for Petit Rex. No. I didn’t misspell it.Continue reading “Sweet Caroline”

Bad Day


Yes. It was a bad day in Central City yesterday. After a parade rolled down Martin Luther King Blvd to honor the late Doctor King, shots rang out and five young people were shot. I don’t need to write about the horrible irony in that.  I don’t believe any of them were killed. Despite watchingContinue reading “Bad Day”
