And, It Stoned Me.


T he only day. I wanted to learn about the best time to publish Storyteller. .According to all the studies it’s 11 am Monday. Fair enough. But, that lead me to my standard question. Best time for who? That time might work in New York, but I live in New Orleans and you might liveContinue reading “And, It Stoned Me.”

Children In Bloom


I was thinking about the rest of my photographic career when I stumbled upon a photographer called David Carol. What caught my eye was something in his biography. 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 photographerContinue reading “Children In Bloom”

River Rise


I was rooting around in my archives when I stumbled upon this picture. I made it very early when we returned to New Orleans. We used to live in Jefferson Parish, near to where The Saints football team practices. I used to walk on a track. Depending on direction you could walk about 1.5 milesContinue reading “River Rise”

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.”Continue reading “The Blue Distance”

Day Breaks


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 IContinue reading “Day Breaks”

On And On It Goes

I am convinced they “improve” their apps because they want to keep their staff employed. I guess during these pandemic times that’s a goodContinue reading “On And On It Goes”

Danger Bird


Amazon pictures is the problem. Every time that I open it up I find more and more “lost” pictures. It doesn’t help that I’m a little lost myself. You’d think that I want to travel. I don’t. Although some big news about travel happened yesterday via Live Nations’ president Michael Rapino. He’s booked the threeContinue reading “Danger Bird”

Into The Morning Light


Once upon a time. I lived in New Mexico. We lived there after Hurricane Katrina hammered New Orleans. We needed a little peace. Solitude. Quitetude. I don’t know how long we planned to stay. I thought maybe a year or two. It turned out to be almost five years. We heard the pounding of theContinue reading “Into The Morning Light”

Mistakes


One day in winter when the sun was starting to lower, I saw the it explode behind a tree. Light and color went flying everywhere. I left without my hat. After seeing the image on the monitor I started thinking random thoughts. Again. I have a friend who lives in Vermont. The state has doneContinue reading “Mistakes”
