  • Something About Stars

    H urricanes and water. That’s what we are looking at. We are also looking at a full frame picture, not something made on a phone. It is a reason to leave Louisiana. Two 100 year storms in 16 years. First came Katrina. Then, came Ida. That’s enough right there. It’s enough not to have power […]

  • Welcome Back Too

    E ven though I did a lot to this picture in post production, I’m staying with only one column. I decided to do a lot of work to this picture because I wanted to experiment in a couple of ways. Before we get into that, my doctor’s office’s ears must have been burning. They called […]

  • Little Mysteries

    See what I mean? Worry about not making pictures and you start making pictures. Or, I suppose that the pool needs cleaning. One or the other. No worries. After I got done pressing the button, I sent children out to do a man’s work. I tried to tell them it had to be done from […]

  • Crystal Blue Persuasion

    What I saw… in a dream. I woke up with this in my head. Well, not exactly. But, this picture is close enough. In my dream, I was swimming upward through the color blue in this picture. I was swimming up and up until I broke through the surface with a spray of water and […]

  • Color of the Sun

    Relaxation. For most of us the water does it. We get heated up in the sunlight, cool off with a dip in the pool. And, if you are smart you just let yourself float and drift around like this guy. I’ve seen him in the past. I waited and watched, I showed some restraint and […]

  • Remains

    I hesitated to post this picture. Because? We are Katrina evacuees and survivors. We know what it is like to be horribly hurt by a big storm. We lost cars. A house. Out buildings. A lot of furniture. And, keepsakes. Somehow I became the keeper of my maternal grandmother’s bible. It survived being brought to […]

  • More Water

    Summertime. Sometimes, the living is easy. This was one of those times. I was sitting by a pool when the clouds started dancing around as a seasonal storm was getting ready to pass through. I couldn’t even see to focus because the light was so strong. I just pointed my smart phone, hoped for the […]

  • Spring Series

    I see pictures everywhere. I make a lot of pictures when I’m walking the dog who sees things, or any of the others. The difference between walking them is simple. She’s used to stopping while I make a picture. The others aren’t. We have about five general routes that we take. Sometimes, we take a […]

  • A Change in the Weather

    The time changed. So did the subject matter. Even while I was working on Mardi Gras, I had to walk the dogs. Especially the dog who sees stuff. That meant I kept making pictures around our walks. Winter changed to spring. The flowers began to really bloom. The trees began to grow new leaves and […]
