Oh Fer…


F irst and foremost, I made a mistake. A big one. The last time that happened was in 1961. Of course, I’m kidding. I last made a mistake about five minutes ago, if not sooner. Yesterday I wrote that the link to my Tumblr version of Storyteller I said the link didn’t work. What IContinue reading “Oh Fer…”

Will The Circle Be Unbroken?


W ill it? I don’t know. It seems like all of my circles have cracks in them. It’s a fight these days to keep them from breaking apart. I’m resilient — a word that all New Orleanians hate — but sometimes enough is enough. I mourn for all the victims of mass shootings. I mournContinue reading “Will The Circle Be Unbroken?”

R0ll Away The Stone


Every now and then I photograph something that amounts to a still life. I say, “amounts to” because I really don’t know how to shoot this stuff. I’m not going to tell you what this balls really are. I’m going to let you guess. To me these are the strangest things ever invented. They areContinue reading “R0ll Away The Stone”

Before Time


Almost pure art. That’s what this picture evolved into from almost nothing. I started with a picture of magenta flowers on a blue handicapped parking sign. I went sort of crazy. I kept going until I arrived at this picture. I have no idea what it means. I seem to be stuck in space, soContinue reading “Before Time”

After The Fall


I went outside around midnight. This is what I saw. What a sky. What a moon. What beauty. What luck. Yeah, photographer’s luck crept in the picture. If I hadn’t wanted the dog to go out, I wouldn’t have seen this. She did and I did. A word or two about the making of thisContinue reading “After The Fall”

Black and White Work


As a young man I studied all of the classic black and white masters. Weston. I read his diaries. Adams. I learned his exposure system. Strand. I studied his composition. The list goes on. That’s what we did back then. No. We didn’t copy them. Instead, we looked at their works in books. We wentContinue reading “Black and White Work”

Gentle


What is it? A weed? A flower? We started this discussion yesterday. Since I like nature’s offerings, I think this is a wildflower. It’s fragile. You can blow a dandelion away in a couple of seconds. Its seeds will be scattered. You’ll be sneezing. You’ll deserve it. Don’t mess with Mother Nature. Don’t mess withContinue reading “Gentle”

And, So It Came


The big, huge moon. I made the picture earlier in the night because I knew that I would have no position to make it when it turned red and wolfish. I usually don’t chase these events down, but I had to. I needed to cheer myself up. Because. The NFL playoffs were yesterday. If youContinue reading “And, So It Came”

Round Things


A very interesting thing happens when I complain loudly on Storyteller. WordPress changes their ways. A few of you tried to help out. I really appreciate that. Way more than you know. The solutions that you offered didn’t work out because under the basic formatting, Laskowitzpictures.org looks a little different from your formatting. Mine costsContinue reading “Round Things”
