All Down The Line


D etails, details, details. They say it’s all in the details. They also say that the devil is in the details. Without thinking about it too much, I’d say details are important. And, so they are. Even though I photograph in a somewhat broad style that is very loose and free flowing, I study theContinue reading “All Down The Line”

On Independence Day


W e’d like to celebrate today. But, we can’t. We won’t. The United States Supreme Court radically overhauled America in just two weeks. We don’t recognize what we once were. For sure, plenty of people are protesting, planning emergency rescues and some are even leaving the country. That won’t change much. Change will only happenContinue reading “On Independence Day”

Angles


S unday. The middle day of a so-called long weekend. I have almost no idea of what to write. I really haven’t paid attention to the news, except for baseball. That’s very intentional. Everyone needs a break from what has become madness. Baseball is life. The season is so long that there are ups andContinue reading “Angles”

The Long Weekend


T his is a big holiday weekend. The Fourth of July celebrates the founding of The United States. After all of the Less-Than-Supreme-Court has done in the past two weeks I’m in no mood to celebrate. After talking to a number of our friends I know that they feel the same way. Hopefully, our neighborsContinue reading “The Long Weekend”

It Never Ends


L et’s be clear. Yesterday sucked. Again. What do I care about most since I consider it to be the foundation of everything else? The environment. What did The-Less-Than-Supreme-Court do yesterday? They shut down the EPA. The Environmental Protection Agency. What the hell are these faux judges trying to do? Some people say with allContinue reading “It Never Ends”

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”

Home, Not Home


Y es. I was taking you through my travels, but soon New Orleans will fade into my rambles. I’d like to say I have mixed emotions about leaving, but I don’t. The city is very broken. We are on pace to have the highest number of murders per capita. That means we’ll have around 350Continue reading “Home, Not Home”

Golden Los Angeles


R esearch, research, research. As I dig through my archives I remember pictures that I forgot. I shot this picture for Lonely Planet, but not for their guidebooks. It was for their trade books which most people call coffee table books. I didn’t shoot the entire book, just a chapter or so. At the timeContinue reading “Golden Los Angeles”

About Friday


A s many of you know I schedule my posts in advance so I didn’t get to tell you what I think about yesterday’s Supreme Court decision and the one the day before. Near as I can tell they like guns and don’t like women. Before I write much further please know that we areContinue reading “About Friday”
