  • What Have We Lost?

    We read a lot. Blogs. Newspapers. Magazines. Podcasts. (Listen to, not read) One favorite author is Margaret Rynkl who mostly writes for the New York Times. She covers just about everything south from a very gentle perspective. Today, she said, “You’re pointing your camera the wrong way.” She was mostly referring to the billions of […]

  • Sunday Glow

    A little different look. Not only did I make this picture during normal daylight hours, but I used completely different production software. Because. Two reasons. I do like to experiment and tinker. But, my usual software, On1, has some new downloaded upgrades. The company seems to be struggling when it comes to new products. Especially […]

  • Jackson Square

    First and foremost. Our prayers and thoughts go out to the people who live along the Gulf Coast in Texas. Twelve years ago, they came for us. Now, it’s our turn. Whatever they need. Whenever they need it. You’d have to have been here and gone through a major storm to really feel it deep […]

  • The French Quarter

    I took a stroll in The French Quarter. I made a few “traditional” pictures. I’m pretty sure that will make my agencies smile. Doing the work and walking around the Quarter made me happy. Yes. It was hot. It was humid. And, the eclipse was all but invisible there. But, it wasn’t crowded. And, the […]

  • Road Trips

    Right about now, I’m wishing that I was somewhere other than here. Ugly light. Ugly milky clouds. Not all that hot. Very humid. I actually gave up a shoot yesterday. The light just wasn’t getting it. And, despite what Jay Maisel says about a photographer having to make a picture under any sort of condition, […]

  • Jackson Square

    Every now and then I make a classic travel/destination picture. At least that’s what photo agencies call them.  This is one of those pictures.  Framing and composition is the key.  Look at the horse’s front legs and how they wrap around the cathedral’s spire. That was no accident. Nor, was the blue sky or the […]

  • Another Night.

    Still No joy when it come to Mardi Gras decorations. I do know there was at least one carnival ball tonight. But, getting invited to those is very hard if you aren’t a krewe member, or close to a krewe member. So, I’ll make do with another picture made in The French Quarter. The folks […]

  • Night In The City

    I had a better shooting night than I remembered when we went to Caroling In Jackson Square. I made four or five picture that I like a lot. This is number three. The first was the hands holding Christmas songs and candles. The second, I published yesterday. And, here’s another one for today. This picture […]

  • 5000 Country Music Songs

    I wrote about Seligman, Arizona, a few days ago.  I realized then that you haven’t seen enough of the place. So, today’s post will be a little long and full. Thirteen pictures, I think. There’s no overall picture and that’s too bad. But, my detail pictures should give you a sense of the place. It’s […]
