The Road


S o. You liked yesterday’s picture of the rain and the mountain. Very cool. I like that picture a lot, too. You agree with a lot of people on Meta platforms. Between all of you there were well over 100 responses. That’s the kind of data that helps me a lot. No, you’re not justContinue reading “The Road”

The Desert


T his photograph got a lot of love on Instagram and even more on Facebook. That still doesn’t change my mind about social media these days. In fact, there is a big discussion on a photojournalist group of which I’m a part. It all comes down to money. Videos generate more income for Meta. OnceContinue reading “The Desert”

Party At Ground Zero


The scene. Bare trees lined up in an interesting shape with blue sky directly about and storm clods moving into thelocation. You’d think that would be an easy picture to make. You’d be wrong. This picture took an act of God in post production which I’ll get to in the right hand column. I wantContinue reading “Party At Ground Zero”

Let It Rain


Cold front coming. We had a weird — not this weird — sky this morning. Then came the thunder and lightening followed by rain. When we got up this morning the temperatures dropped by about 20 degrees. This won’t last, but it feels so good. I am experimenting with free design templates. Since most ofContinue reading “Let It Rain”

No Way Home


Summer. The calendar may say that we’ve got almost a month to summer, but the heat, humidity and rain have given us a summer-like feel for the past couple of days. I’m not really ready for it, especially since we planned on not being here for a couple of months, but a virus took thatContinue reading “No Way Home”

Now You See It


Painted sky. A particular kind of summer sky. If you aren’t looking up, it’s likely that you’ll miss it. If you don’t see light, and color, it’s like that you won’t get it. I was talking to a somebody that I know a little. I was describing what I saw. She looked at me withContinue reading “Now You See It”

Once Again… Into the Sky


Sky train number two. One of the benefits of staying in one place is that you get to see some of the same subjects in a different light. Yes. That means the physical and the metaphysical. The old Robert Capa saying, “if the picture isn’t good enough then you weren’t close enough,” really has twoContinue reading “Once Again… Into the Sky”

You Deserve a Break Today


I thought that I was finished with this series. Then, I saw it. One more picture. The one with the golden arches tucked neatly into the bottom right hand corner. I composed it that way. But, it was hidden in the funk of low-lying clouds. Even though it doesn’t look like it, this picture tookContinue reading “You Deserve a Break Today”
