Working For A Living


A ugust. This is when strong people turn weird. Myself included. After all, this the month of big hurricanes. First came Katrina. On August 29, 2005. Then came Ida. On August 29, 2021. If that doesn’t spook you, nothing will. Katrina was the more destructive of the two, although Ida did her mean spirited thing.Continue reading “Working For A Living”

Other Ways


A doorway to… With no imagination it could be a doorway to the building. With just a little imagination it could be a doorway to the unique. With more imagination it could be the doorway to the universe. You pick. I like that latter. I saw a picture posted on some social media. It wasContinue reading “Other Ways”

Further


B ack to Shanghai. China. This is a photograph made on film. Fuji Velvia, if I remember correctly. So, it’s a classic. Or, just plain old. I worked there for a very short time. Before I had to be anywhere I would go for a walk in the morning, mostly to Old Town. I wasContinue reading “Further”

Can I Borrow Some Time?

Once In A Lifetime


O nce upon a time I lived and worked in a far place. In Asia, in China, in Hong Kong. Sounds glamorous doesn’t it? It wasn’t. Just like most “glamorous” ventures, the hard work and effort is usually done in the deep background that most people never see. In order to do my job IContinue reading “Once In A Lifetime”

Oldest School


One thing leads to another. While I was poking around my newly resurrected archives looking for the Earth day picture, I found this one. I made it in Shanghai, China in 1989. In those days Shanghai was still a dark city. No lighting. Electricity was marginal. You bought your groceries in little shops or onContinue reading “Oldest School”

What Does It Feel Like?


This going to be more about the technique than it is about the picture. The picture, itself, was made in Mong Kok, in Kowloon. For those of you who don’t know much about the geography of Hong Kong, Kowloon is a peninsula that extends down from the mainland, which means China. Above Kowloon are The NewContinue reading “What Does It Feel Like?”

One Thing Leads To Another


As the title suggests, one thing really does lead to another. I was only going to publish one Hong Kong picture and go back to showing you more New Orleans. But. Then I thought… I’d like to mess around with some newer pictures. So. More Hong Kong. What started as a whim has become somethingContinue reading “One Thing Leads To Another”
