Now is the Start


F lowers are starting to bloom. They are confused. The weather feels like spring during the day and winter at night. I’m confused. Lately that seems to be a normal condition. That started during lockdown days when time was flexible. It’s gotten a little better, but I still confuse days of the week. Not watchingContinue reading “Now is the Start”

Garden Party


A Sunday photograph. Something bright and colorful for those of you who are still digging out of the wintery white stuff, which is a large part of the country. It’s already been some winter. And, there is a polar vortex coming. It’ll probably start raining fish like it did in Texas a week or twoContinue reading “Garden Party”

Mellow Yellow


T here is a period in my life when I liked to make very closely focused pictures that are akin to macro photography. That period started about twenty years ago and continues to this day. Some period, eh? For me, this work is something like a palette cleanser between other, more gritty subjects. Of course,Continue reading “Mellow Yellow”

The Prettiest Thing


You’ve heard it before. Stop and smell the roses. I did that. I also made this photograph. It’s my version of art. I made it soft, dark and velvety. This image makes me want to touch it. No worries. I didn’t. I like to make pictures, not touch things. Which brings me to this. Somehow.Continue reading “The Prettiest Thing”

Good Tradition


Does this ever happen to you? You see something in a dream and then, there it is in real life. That’s how I came to make this photograph. My dream was weird and wild — as they often are — but toward the end as I was waking up I was enveloped in this purpleContinue reading “Good Tradition”

Soul Years


Discussions. Between friends. Friends who are photographers. We talked about this and that. Then, we started talking about how we move from the photographers that we are to the photographers that we want to be. We are all photo veterans. We probably have about 175 years of experience between us. We all seem to wantContinue reading “Soul Years”

A Little Foxy


Summer things. This picture is not part of my summer collection. It does show a summery plant. Foxtails. They only catch my attention when the wind is blowing. That also makes them a little hard to photograph. Timing is everything. Hand – eye coordination is everything. Seeing what’s happening in the background matters too. ThatContinue reading “A Little Foxy”

Another Way


“All art is autobiographical.” “All meaning is made by the viewer.” This little project may come to a quicker end than I originally thought. Because. I have no idea what this means to me. I’m fairly certain that it’s not autobiographical. It’s a little peaceful. Neither my work or I, thrive on a steady dietContinue reading “Another Way”

On Christmas Day


First. The important stuff. Merry Christmas. And, no we didn’t. You know that saying? “Sometimes the hardest part of taking a picture is getting there?” Well. We didn’t get there. We ate too much heavy Russian food. “It’s a Wonderful Life” was playing on the television. Everybody was full. Happy. Very lazy. Nobody felt like driving 50Continue reading “On Christmas Day”
