Blue Mind


Y ou knew it. I know it. I change my mind on a whim. This is image comes from my archives. It is one of the PicFair images. The most amazing thing is the photograph was made using an iPhone 6. Yes, it was edgy in it’s time, but it was nothing like the phonesContinue reading “Blue Mind”

Fresh Air


S omeone asked me what kind of projects I want to do. I talked about two, but they require some major culling. Reviewing archive work is taxing. Not only to you sit in a chair with your eye glued to a loupe and stare into a light box, but all sorts of emotions crop up.Continue reading “Fresh Air”

Tired Eyes


Road trips. You know them. You like them. Probably. You drive. You listen to specially curated playlists of road music. You eat gas station food. You drink bad coffee. You stay in motels of questionable quality. Even the ones with big names. You’re having fun. Until. You decide to make tracks to a certain destination.Continue reading “Tired Eyes”

When the Truth

Headed in the Right Direction


It’s all a matter of perspective. This picture, for instance, looks like a sunset. It’s not. It’s a reflection of a sunset. It’s all optics and physics. This picture is made looking south and east. Since when does the sun set in the east? It confused me for a while until I realized that theContinue reading “Headed in the Right Direction”

Landmarks


Finally. I seem to be feeling better. That’s good. I’m running out of fresh work. I made this picture a few weeks ago. But, I didn’t tinker with it. Until today. I wanted a certain color, shade and hue. I thought that I was onto something new and different. The joke is on me. I’veContinue reading “Landmarks”
