Working For A Living


A ugust. This is when strong people turn weird. Myself included. After all, this the month of big hurricanes. First came Katrina. On August 29, 2005. Then came Ida. On August 29, 2021. If that doesn’t spook you, nothing will. Katrina was the more destructive of the two, although Ida did her mean spirited thing.Continue reading “Working For A Living”

You Got The Silver, You Got The Gold


A sia, part two. I used to travel to Thailand on holiday after working in Hong Kong, sometimes day and night. I liked being there. But, sometimes I could only take a few days so I went to Bangkok, which is a massive city. Some of it is very modern while other parts look likeContinue reading “You Got The Silver, You Got The Gold”

You Have To Partake Before You Partook


A nother travel assignment, another place in which to get lost. Actually, I don’t mind if I get lost when I’m working. You never know what will turn up while you are not where you hoped to be. You know, the pictures I make on my way to someplace else. I was photographing another pieceContinue reading “You Have To Partake Before You Partook”

In fact, there is a big discussion on a photojournalist group of which I’m a part. It all comes down to money. Videos generate more income for Meta. OnceContinue reading “The Desert”

Little Village


M elbourne in the fall. If you are located in some of the downtown areas I think the timing is good because you can see the city rather than trees, although I’m pretty sure the greens of summer are stunning. While I was there I mostly worked, but it sort of went this way. IContinue reading “Little Village”

It Never Ends


L et’s be clear. Yesterday sucked. Again. What do I care about most since I consider it to be the foundation of everything else? The environment. What did The-Less-Than-Supreme-Court do yesterday? They shut down the EPA. The Environmental Protection Agency. What the hell are these faux judges trying to do? Some people say with allContinue reading “It Never Ends”

Golden Los Angeles


R esearch, research, research. As I dig through my archives I remember pictures that I forgot. I shot this picture for Lonely Planet, but not for their guidebooks. It was for their trade books which most people call coffee table books. I didn’t shoot the entire book, just a chapter or so. At the timeContinue reading “Golden Los Angeles”
