The Great White Way


I don’t like your fashion business, misterAnd I don’t like these drugs that keep you thinI don’t like what happened to my sisterFirst we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin Those are Leonard Cohen’s lyrics. I suppose you can think of New York in those terms. I don’t. I usually like it there. I likeContinue reading “The Great White Way”

All Bright and Glittering


A nother long strange trip in a dream. It went this way. I was trying to get out of a city that was falling apart. Buildings were crumbling or on fire. Crime was at an all time high. There were riots in the streets. The rioters defeated the police because the police were understaffed. IContinue reading “All Bright and Glittering”

Where Time Stands Still


O nce, on a walk, I saw these Doctor Suess-like trees. You know, “Green Eggs and Spam,” “The Cat in the Hat.” Well, maybe. I always thought “The Cat in the Hat” was about Miles Davis. He wore hats most of the time. He certainly was a cat. With a trumpet. He changed music five orContinue reading “Where Time Stands Still”

The Edge of Town


U rbex deluxe. I wrote that in the picture’s caption and I liked it so well that I made it the lead line. I’m thinking it could be a good name for a band. Anyway. My past is coming back to haunt me. I used to photograph a lot of urbex, or urban exploration forContinue reading “The Edge of Town”

Fathers And Sons


We listened to a podcast this morning that stopped me in my tracks. It’s a conversation between Barack Obama and Bruce Springsteen. I know what some of you are thinking. It’s not about that. Liberal or Conservative, Democrat or Republican, this is worth listening to. You’ll learn something about the two men. More importantly, youContinue reading “Fathers And Sons”

On And On It Goes


Luckily for all of us, WordPress made a lot of changes in the block system. They announced it today. I use the word luckily in a snarky tongue in cheek way. I am convinced they “improve” their apps because they want to keep their staff employed. I guess during these pandemic times that’s a goodContinue reading “On And On It Goes”

Defying Gravity


All in my head. I saw one scene. I photographed it. I saw another scene. I photographed it. When the time came I combined them. Oooh. Spooky. The picture does have an eerie feeling to it. Like something out of H.P. Lovecraft. Can’t you just see Cthulhu lurking back in those trees? Lovecraft wrote inContinue reading “Defying Gravity”

This Place is a Dream


“As pieces of cloud dissolve in the sunlight.” — Rumi When I saw this and made the picture I didn’t know what I had. What a wonderful scene as nature created it. I just had to let it find me. That was the hard part. The easy part was pushing the button. Call it whatContinue reading “This Place is a Dream”

Heading For The Light


Number two. I said that I made a lot of pictures of one of the most amazing sunsets that I’ve seen in many moons. This is the second one. I hate to say this, but I was only about ten steps from yesterday’s picture. I just saw it, walked a bit, and pressed the buttonContinue reading “Heading For The Light”
