Searching


“Sometimes the hardest part of taking a picture is getting there.” For the abandoned railroad project, sometimes the hardest part of taking picture is finding the picture. Four hours looking in two likely places yielded nothing. For the project. I did find a picture or two. For myself. This is one of them. I wentContinue reading “Searching”

You Deserve a Break Today


I thought that I was finished with this series. Then, I saw it. One more picture. The one with the golden arches tucked neatly into the bottom right hand corner. I composed it that way. But, it was hidden in the funk of low-lying clouds. Even though it doesn’t look like it, this picture tookContinue reading “You Deserve a Break Today”

Welcome to the Soft Parade


“Successful hills are here to stay, Everything must be this way, Gentle streets where people play Welcome to the Soft Parade,  All our lives we sweat and save, Building for a shallow grave, Must be something else we say, Somehow to defend this place, Everything must be this way Everything must be this way, yeah, The Soft Parade has now begun, ListenContinue reading “Welcome to the Soft Parade”

How It Be


It’s not a Sunday picture, Well. It is. Sorta. A long time back I use to publish “Experimental Sunday.” It was a sort of predictable Sunday feature when I posted images that I was tinkering with, or worse, making unrecognizable. Like this one. I call it this picture, “Lonely Future.” It’s about all the constant regulatory rollContinue reading “How It Be”

In the Summer


I make pictures in the weirdest places. I took this one in the parking lot of a strip mall where I gone to run a couple of errands. At this point, I should say that I really don’t see myself as a nature photographer. I just sort of make it up as I go along.Continue reading “In the Summer”

In the Other Direction


A couple of days ago I published a picture of a cement factory. Down the road is a motel that sits roughly under a couple of overpasses. This is what it looks like from motel end of the street. It’s not exactly a five-star kind of place. But. People live there. So, I have toContinue reading “In the Other Direction”

Dark End


More poking around Jefferson Parish. I’d been here a few years ago. I published something from just about the same view. But, I turned it into something very dark and moody. This time around, I left it pretty much as I saw it. I still really can’t imagine living in one of those houses. Not thatContinue reading “Dark End”
