Witches, Ghosts and Michael Myers


Here it is. The day of the big night. The night when stuff used to burn in Detroit, when eggs were thrown at houses of people who yelled, “Hey! You kids stay offa my lawn,” when the houses of popular kids were tp’d (Kids used to wrap houses, trees, cars even dogs with toilet paper.Continue reading “Witches, Ghosts and Michael Myers”

Bag ‘o Bones


Ooh spooky. How much is that skeleton in the window, the one with the long gray hair? Okay, that’s weird. We are into the last couple of weeks before Halloween. It’s gonna be a little boring out here in the field. But, there is plenty to do in C’ville. So, we’ll do it there. TheContinue reading “Bag ‘o Bones”

It’s Time Now


Halloween 2022 I made this picture a couple of years ago and it didn’t impress me. Then, a few nights ago, very late, I started tinkering with it. This image appeared. Ah ha, I thought. My first Halloween post. Since Halloween is almost over and Christmas is upon us — at least that what bigContinue reading “It’s Time Now”

New Orleans Spooky


T his whole post might just be a rant. I know what you are thinking. “Oh no” I’ll try to be funny even though I’m not feeling that way. You know I don’t have much time these days. Time is my most precious commodity. Not just now, even in the best of times. But, especiallyContinue reading “New Orleans Spooky”

Blue Mind


Y ou knew it. I know it. I change my mind on a whim. This is image comes from my archives. It is one of the PicFair images. The most amazing thing is the photograph was made using an iPhone 6. Yes, it was edgy in it’s time, but it was nothing like the phonesContinue reading “Blue Mind”

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”
