Sooner or Later


T here is nothing new under the sun said an old friend of mine with whom I once worked. She was right. For the past few days, there has been a buzz about a new lens just released by Tokina. It’s a 500mm F8 lens that fits in the palm of your hand. They callContinue reading “Sooner or Later”

Winterlude


I ‘ve been struggling to find topics to write about. I’ve been trying to keep my posts lighthearted but we are living through some of the worst times that I’ve ever seen. The country is so polarized that I’m pretty sure that we can’t agree about the color of the sky. Now we’ve got theContinue reading “Winterlude”

Questions


S pace. The final frontier. This picture was assembled from bits and pieces of other pictures. I’d say it was layered, but it wasn’t exactly that. Normally, I lay one entire picture over another. This time I laid a portion of a picture over the base and blended until you can’t see the edge. ItContinue reading “Questions”

Rolling


A nother experiment and another morning nap. There’s a reason for both. It’s my nature to experiment even when the picture gets a little bleak. The other is something that makes me nervous. You know about my back and hip problems. I’ve been feeling good for a while. Yesterday I seemed to collapse. Everything wentContinue reading “Rolling”

There is a guy who posts as NOLAphotoguild on Instagram. Today he wrote an eight page screed about freedom. I betContinue reading “Into The Mystic”

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”

They Might Be Lost


A dark sky along with a dark day. I’m trying to decide two moral dilemmas. I suppose we all should take the high road, but I also feel that paybacks are in order to just to make sure that consequences of short sightedness are understood. First, understand that I stand with all the states andContinue reading “They Might Be Lost”

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”

More Than The Sky


W ork. It’s all about the work. If it’s important the work is simple, but simple things are hard. In any case, the work is the prayer. I’m sitting here listening to a pod cast with Donnie Osmond. Wait, what? Yes. Donnie Osmond. It turns out he is one helluva a musician and a greatContinue reading “More Than The Sky”
