What The…


This picture is a mess. It started out okay, but I had “help” it. It got worse. Then, it got even more worst. Luckily, it turned even worster. Or, something like that. Seriously. This is an example of just about every editing technique not really working. I probably should have made a few small improvementsContinue reading “What The…”

It’s Just A State Of Mind


I’ve been listening to the newly re-released Revolver by The Beatles. The album is amazingly richer and fuller than the original. Normally, remasters don’t sound “right” to me. Something is off but it’s nothing I can put my finger on. Not this one. Whew! In order to make the album salable about 50 years afterContinue reading “It’s Just A State Of Mind”

Into The Great Nowhere


I’ve been doing some kind of drive by, or drive through shooting for years. This photograph was actually made in black and white on Tri-X film. The color comes later, much later. Like last night while I was playing around. I was much younger when I made this picture. I don’t think that I’d driveContinue reading “Into The Great Nowhere”

The Great Chase


Once upon a time I used to make pictures like this on a regular basis. I’m not sure why I stopped. It wasn’t a conscience decision. I just sort of let it fade away. I’m thinking that before I slip out of New Orleans for good I should wander around the city making these kindContinue reading “The Great Chase”

Like Jazz


The change in the weather is getting to me. It would help if I stayed in one place, but I travel from hot, humid and wet, on to hot and wet, to cooler and dry. I don’t know where I am. My brain doesn’t know either. Worse, my sinuses think that I’m on a rollerContinue reading “Like Jazz”

When Rain Finally Arrives


A ll in blue. I tend to photograph on the colorful side of things. Sometimes the image is true to the colors I see in real life. Sometimes the it is true to the colors I see in my head. This picture is closer to the latter. Even though we are currently living through aContinue reading “When Rain Finally Arrives”

O h God said to Abraham, “Kill me a son”Abe says, “Man, you must be puttin’ me on”God say, “No.” Abe say, “What?”God say, “You can do what you want Abe, butThe next time you see me comin’ you better run”Well Abe says, “Where do you want this killin’ done?”God says, “Out on Highway 61”Continue reading “Highway 61”

Cold, Cold, Cold


W hen I talk about photographing on assignment many people think it’s all glamour and excitement. Now, that I work in the background of making music I know that glamour is the last thing on anybody’s minds. It’s hard work and most of it sucks. Getting back to strictly photography, I once wrote that IContinue reading “Cold, Cold, Cold”

Out On The Road


My WordPress buddy Tim Allen said that he hoped this worked out for me. Me too. But, what he doesn’t realize is that this better work out for me because if it doesn’t he’ll have nothing but problems since WordPress is changing everything. One helper told me that since technology has changed over the yearsContinue reading “Out On The Road”
