The Rent Is Always Due


Y es. I know this picture looks like the other one. The one that felt like the end of the world. But, this one is different. Those trees. You know the ones. They look like something out of The Cat in the Hat. The one the Doctor Seuss created. It could be another kind ofContinue reading “The Rent Is Always Due”

Fever Dreams


C onversation. It took me a while, but I finally figured something out. I say that photography and music are very similar in approach. And, they are. But. There is one huge difference. One that matters most. Conversation. When a musician plays with another musician they create a musical conversation. They talk to each otherContinue reading “Fever Dreams”

Begin Again


I t’s funny. I meant what I said. I don’t seem to be able to make a picture, or at least a meaningful one. Even this one. It’s just a bunch of old pictures stuck on top of each other. I have no idea why I can’t seem to work. I’m sure two years ofContinue reading “Begin Again”

Hundreds of Ways


Y esterday was almost useless. Since I believe there are no useless days, that’s saying something. I had one of those days where everything went wrong. Luckily, they were little things. The espresso machine started the day, by doing something funky. The mouse batteries died without warning. Two lightbulbs burned out. And, so it wentContinue reading “Hundreds of Ways”

Orphan of the Storm

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”

Never Ending


W e listen to a lot of podcasts around here. This morning I was listening to The New York Times’ The Daily. The reporter was talking to a viral scientist. It was a pretty good interview until the reporter asked the scientist when the pandemic would end. She declined to predict that, but did sayContinue reading “Never Ending”

What Remains


W hat remains, indeed. Clean up continues while I wander around taking pictures. In this case, pictures of floating leaves in a pool that had already been cleared of a lot of storm junk, which brings me to the topic of junk. When you are sitting around in a hot house at night with littleContinue reading “What Remains”

Down on the Corner


T he age of experimentation continues. I found out yesterday that I had no idea how to change the color of the tag cloud or the calendar. I’m sure instructions are buried deep in the 900 pages of “how to” notes. Until I find it, you won’t be seeing those blocks again. Today, I’m experimentingContinue reading “Down on the Corner”
