Memphis in Winter


I’ve been working a little in the past mostly because I keep finding “lost” images in my archives. I don’t understand something about that. I use a couple of cloud services for backup. One is Apple’s cloud. It’s because it’s on all my digital tools. The iMac, iPhone, iPad and a backup Samsung phone. EveryContinue reading “Memphis in Winter”

Watching The River Flow


No experiments today. No messing around. No disco. No party. Just a pure photograph. A new photograph that I made by accident. That happens sometimes. I was walking to one place when my phone rang and a voice came through the line that said, “Take a picture, you fool.” Not really, but I stopped walkingContinue reading “Watching The River Flow”

Nothing Normal


R arely do I ever see fog in The French Quarter. One time during the Christmas season I did. I was shocked. I almost dropped my cameras. I almost fell in the river. The muddy Mississippi River. The river that is polluted from all the oil and other stuff dropped from the big ocean goingContinue reading “Nothing Normal”

A Decade Of Nothing


This is just a picture. I made it roughly a decade ago. I made it on Christmas Eve 2012. I made it at the bonfires on the river near Lutcher, Louisiana. We light the bonfires to guide Papa Noel down the Mississippi River to New Orleans so all the fine people of the city canContinue reading “A Decade Of Nothing”

Here I Am


“Life doesn’t wave as it’s speeding by. Better grab on fast and hold on tight. And don’t ever forget to fight this good fight. Here I am.” It’s a calling. I make pictures for myself first, and then for everybody else. I’m there for myself but being there for everybody else comes in a closeContinue reading “Here I Am”

Watching The River Flow


I wasn’t sure what to publish next, but there were a couple of comments on Facebook and here that sort of guided my way. My friend Greg Gross, who publishes a great travel blog called, I’m Black and I Travel at http://www.imblackanditravel.com made a few comments about the history of Cairo. I had no ideaContinue reading “Watching The River Flow”

New Orleans


After a couple of winter-like days, we’ve warmed up a bit. Well, a lot. Today, the high temperature was around 82 degrees. With that, we’ve had a lot of low winter light along with a lot of fast-moving clouds.  So. I did the only thing that I could do. I took advantage of it andContinue reading “New Orleans”

Crescent City Connection (Again)


Before I get really going on this post, I thought I share something with you. My friends at the Albuquerque Photographers Gallery  http-::www.abqphotographersgallery.com: were talking about lavender skies in Albuquerque via a post on Facebook. I had to chuckle because they think New Mexico is the only place that has lavender skies. But, my picture sortContinue reading “Crescent City Connection (Again)”

Running Low


To be very honest with you, I’m running out of pictures for Storyteller. At least for now. I am about five days away from the point where I can make some new images. So, I’m rooting around in my out takes. This image was sort of an experiment. When I arrived in Memphis, I sortContinue reading “Running Low”
