  • Never

    I promise you, I never make self portraits. Selfies are a thing that I think are exceptionally narcissistic. I accidentally took a picture of myself that I kinda liked, because I intentionally made myself look wrinkly and dry old. I experimented with that for a while, but you never saw them. Ugh. I don’t really […]

  • All Another Dream

    When you wake up early in the morning. Experiments with light, color and time. I’m still not well.

  • Other Work, Other Places

    One, two. The same picture two different ways. The top image looks close to the original that was made on slide film. The bottom picture is my reworked version. In the past I would never offer these pictures to a client. They wouldn’t understand and they would think I failed. Or, lost my mind. Probably […]

  • The Kid And Me

    A Street Portrait Gets Good The bullet points should tell you everything that you need to know about making a picture like this one. But, just in case. No matter how well you plan for every possible situation when you arrive on the scene everything changes. As boxer Mike Tyson said, “You can plan for […]

    I made this picture a few years back at a county fair. Originally, this was a horizontal photograph, but I realized that his hand was doing something, but you can’t tell what. So, I decided to do what I had been taught in photojournalism school, crop to the heart of the image in order to […]

    S omething a little different to start the work week. I thought I hadn’t posted a little portfolio in long time so I decided today was the day. Generally, my New Orleans pictures are fairly recognizable. Not these. I’ve published some of the images that you are looking at in the very distant past but […]

  • Just Another Day

    A major discussion took place in my brain. It was along the lines of save it or hold it. Knowing that I would probably lose it within my archives. Rather than hold it, I published it. Obviously, it’s just another day in New Orleans. No. No. No. It’s Halloween. The very night of the holiday […]

  • I Forgive It All

    There are times when I forget what I’ve done in the past. I made this picture four years ago and I cannot remember doing it. I probably made it on the way to someplace else like a second line. You know me. I’m not a fan of useless data. But, sometimes it helps. Here’s a […]

  • Time

    L earning. That was a koan one year. Just like simple is this year’s koan. I was doing a deep review to find pictures for this and two other projects. After glazing my brain and frosting my eyes, I came to understand why I am not working much and not caring if I do. We’ve […]
