Bring The Donut Army


B efore I tell you about New York City and these pictures let me tell you about the headline. I was listening to a podcast. One of the presenters told a bad joke. It was along the lines of what do donuts say to people who are eating them? There are dozens of us. ThisContinue reading “Bring The Donut Army”

Confusion Wheel


Y es, it’s true. I wrote that caption which says customized nature. It’s true because I performed so much digital editing on this tree that it might not look anything like the original. That really wasn’t my intent but it looked good at the time so I went with it. I probably should have reworkedContinue reading “Confusion Wheel”

Fresh Air


S omeone asked me what kind of projects I want to do. I talked about two, but they require some major culling. Reviewing archive work is taxing. Not only to you sit in a chair with your eye glued to a loupe and stare into a light box, but all sorts of emotions crop up.Continue reading “Fresh Air”

Naked To The Eye


M ore changes. I knew that I wanted to design some kind of gallery. I’ve done it in the past. Good luck with that. Now the gallery template is divided by columns so the images are divided into long thin columns. A casual viewer wouldn’t know what they were seeing unless they they opened eachContinue reading “Naked To The Eye”

Crayon Angels


It’s a great day for experiments. Rainy. Kind of cold. We’ve had a lot of rain since yesterday. Supposedly, there are three or four more inches on the way. So, I used a new app. I’ve used it once in the past. I’ll get into the technical aspects of that on the right hand column.Continue reading “Crayon Angels”

You Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere


Golden light. I think every photographer dreams about it. If not, then the blue hour. I recently learned that I had two chances a day for both. There’s another one that starts about 4:30 in the morning. I didn’t even know there was a 4:30 in the morning. Alright. I stole a Bart Simpson line.Continue reading “You Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere”

I Tried Going West


Running on empty. I don’t know if it is the pandemic, the political situation or just 2020 — where anything where happens — or something else. I usually take some time to think about my last year. Some of it, in 2019, was pretty good. The rest not so much. I could have done better.Continue reading “I Tried Going West”

20 Million Things


A little minimalist. New growth reaching toward the sky. I’d talk about the first day of teaching but it would just make you sick. Let me just say this. Everything the school district said to the parents and the teachers were lies, lies and more lies. This will never work. People will get sick. SomeContinue reading “20 Million Things”

Who Knew


Who knew? Who knew that this new way of working might just give us the tools we need to be more creative without learning to code. I’ve long had a dream to be able to fill the page from side to side. Now I can. This makes me very happy. I think that as IContinue reading “Who Knew”
