Once In A Lifetime


O nce upon a time I lived and worked in a far place. In Asia, in China, in Hong Kong. Sounds glamorous doesn’t it? It wasn’t. Just like most “glamorous” ventures, the hard work and effort is usually done in the deep background that most people never see. In order to do my job IContinue reading “Once In A Lifetime”

Road Color


Y esterday’s post was a bit bleak, but it was honest. Authentic, as we say today. We saw an example of it on Thursday night, when the January 6 Committee laid the insurrection at Trump’s feet. And, at his feet it will stay. I’m sure he’ll be hopping mad. Too bad. It was an exerciseContinue reading “Road Color”

Into The Darkness


E verything can’t be taught, like making pictures that look like this one. It’s simple enough to do, but would you? It’s one of my classic drive by, or better yet, a drive through picture. I used to do this a lot but I think that my hand – eye coordination is lacking a littleContinue reading “Into The Darkness”

And, we ate dinner at all of our favorite places. We went to places like Garcias, TheContinue reading “88 Constellations”

For some reason the newspaper photo staff was made up of about everybody with whom I ever worked. We were sidelined. TheContinue reading “My Back Pages”

Night Ride


Everybody is going somewhere. This is Central Business District traffic at right about rush hour. There is rain falling in the light dusky shadows. Drivers are trying to dart in and out of traffic blockages. I got bored. I did what any photographer would do. I made pictures. Before you think that I’m crazy, let meContinue reading “Night Ride”

Everyday It Rains


The goopy season. It starts around now and lasts well into August, when even hotter temperatures dry out the air a little bit. A loss of humidity would seem to be a good thing. It is. Unfortunately, the temperature starts creeping into the triple digits. Like about 219 degrees. You pick your poison. Or, youContinue reading “Everyday It Rains”

A Big Rain


A big storm blew in to the region. I thought I had I beat when we ran errands. But, oh no. I should just stop thinking. It wasn’t all that bad because we are used to it. And, it dropped our temperatures by about 30 degrees. When we woke up in the morning, it wasContinue reading “A Big Rain”
