Witches, Ghosts and Michael Myers


Here it is. The day of the big night. The night when stuff used to burn in Detroit, when eggs were thrown at houses of people who yelled, “Hey! You kids stay offa my lawn,” when the houses of popular kids were tp’d (Kids used to wrap houses, trees, cars even dogs with toilet paper.Continue reading “Witches, Ghosts and Michael Myers”

Bag ‘o Bones


Ooh spooky. How much is that skeleton in the window, the one with the long gray hair? Okay, that’s weird. We are into the last couple of weeks before Halloween. It’s gonna be a little boring out here in the field. But, there is plenty to do in C’ville. So, we’ll do it there. TheContinue reading “Bag ‘o Bones”

It’s Time Now


Halloween 2022 I made this picture a couple of years ago and it didn’t impress me. Then, a few nights ago, very late, I started tinkering with it. This image appeared. Ah ha, I thought.

Must Be The Season Of The Witch

You have no idea how it feels when you get any kind of notification like that. Your heart pounds. You are wide awake. YourContinue reading “Must Be The Season Of The Witch”

Let It Rain


Cold front coming. We had a weird — not this weird — sky this morning. Then came the thunder and lightening followed by rain. When we got up this morning the temperatures dropped by about 20 degrees. This won’t last, but it feels so good. I am experimenting with free design templates. Since most ofContinue reading “Let It Rain”

A Day In March


Testing technique. Another dog and I headed to the airport. On the way we stopped to visit friends. As we were leaving I saw this scene. It really didn’t look much in camera and after basic development. So, I tinkered. And, tinkered. I arrived at the picture that you see before you. I’m still notContinue reading “A Day In March”
