You Got Gold
Keyboard problems. No story today. My apologies.
As you know, I’ve been playing with my archive. This image is the result of that. It’s in response to the synthetic media produced by generative AI. Yep, AI is growing so fast that jargon is being created as fast AI is being developed. That’s scary for a lot of reasons. Not only can it…
A Study In Speed
I’ve always like motion in photographs, well as much as I can bring to a still picture. I think it adds something to a location that speaks to the energy of the place. That’s not to say that I think a city should be photographed at full tilt boogie, but there could be a healthy…
Yellow in the Distance
Yet, another tree. I seem to be on a roll with trees these days. I guess it’s the the low winter light that I like. It’s like magic to me. I see it and I respond. It’s woken me up. I’ve been making one or two fairly good pictures a day. I have no idea…
And, It Stoned Me.

He said that he was the first Image Bank assignment photographer. The division of Kodak for whom I worked was The Image Bank. The only TIB photographer…

The Blue Distance
Blue. My picture. Joni Mitchell’s song. My eyes. The sky on a sunny day. A clear lake. The ocean away from land. I made this picture in New Mexico. Older pictures keep resurfacing on Amazon Pictures. They are pictures that I’ve forgotten about. Pictures that have never been seen by anybody. Pictures that were “lost.”…
The thing about going to bed early means that I awake too early. I mostly sleep around six hours a night. You can do the math. If I go to bed around 11 pm, well, you know. It’s a little maddening. It means that I haven’t gotten quite enough sleep. It also means that I…
