Like a Speeding Bullet


O kay. I’m going to get back on posting track. So, this one is for 1pm Central Time. We’ll just see about that. That sounds a lot like the always infamous, “Just wait until your father gets home.” You know how that used to work, right? Sometimes I wonder why I even bother with DSLRContinue reading “Like a Speeding Bullet”

On This Day


T oday is a big day. In New Orleans, January 6th marks the start of Carnival with a parade through The French Quarter and a streetcar ride. It only grows from here until the season ends on Mardi Gras Tuesday. More importantly, today marks the one year anniversary of the insurrection, storming and temporary takeContinue reading “On This Day”

Everlong


I t seems I went backwards today. My last two posts were artistic in nature. They were pictures that helped you to feel. I hope. This picture is more traditional in the sense that it helps you to see the end of a day as I documented it. It may also help you to feel.Continue reading “Everlong”

Something Tamed, and Something Wild


T his picture started out its life in black and white. That’s not quite true. The original file is color, but because of the way I isolated it against a bald whitish sky it looks black and white. The picture became experimental. I wanted to see if I could introduce some color to a blackContinue reading “Something Tamed, and Something Wild”

Why Would You Wait?


A brand new picture. Imagine that. I went for a walk when the light was right and I started having fun. I just kept making pictures until I was finished, which took a while. I think that I wanted to take the long way home as they say. The funny thing was that the moreContinue reading “Why Would You Wait?”

That’s Your Secret


L et’s see if this thing works today. In many ways, I’m becoming afraid to post. It’s become what bad thing is WordPress going to do to me today. I don’t know why I care. It’s not the most important thing do on any given day. I read an op-ed column in which the writerContinue reading “That’s Your Secret”

Don’t Let Your Goodbye Stand


“U nderneath the heavens above.” That’s a line from a Bob Dylan song. I heard it just as I started writing. So, I thought, “Why not?” Y’all know that I listen to music while I write, yes? I’m playing a Spotify play list called Summer Rewind. I’m trying to think about what summer this particularContinue reading “Don’t Let Your Goodbye Stand”

Mystifies Me


T iming. It’s everything. Look in one direction and you see nothing. Turn around and there’s the picture. Make some great music and nobody hears it unless the timing is right. Play sports, maybe baseball. The difference between striking out and hitting a home run is timing. You get the point. This picture is aContinue reading “Mystifies Me”

Orphan of the Storm


M y thinking changes a little bit every day depending what I read or see or do. I made this photograph a couple for days ago. I started playing with it last night. The picture lead me to the way it looks. Look at the next column for that. I generally listen to music whenContinue reading “Orphan of the Storm”
