Shanghai Dreams


Shanghai, China. For me, it’s one the most interesting cities in China. While some neighborhoods have been modernized, just like almost every city in the country, a lot of it remains untouched. There are neighborhoods like the old French Concession that look much as they did in the 1930s. The buildings are western styled, theContinue reading “Shanghai Dreams”

One More Month


Patience. I don’t have enough of it. At least I think that I don’t. But, I’ve been around this place for twelve years. That indicates a kind of patience. Doesn’t it? I have to question my choice about staying around for so long. This is the time of year when I look at numbers andContinue reading “One More Month”

Happy Place


I’ve been to a lot of places. Maybe too many. Even though the farm is truly beautiful and I am very happy to be here, this place, in this picture, is truly my happy place. Look at it. This picture was made in early fall. Isn’t that something? So? Why aren’t we there, rather thanContinue reading “Happy Place”

Friendly Ghosts


Sunday, a good day to start a new project. The photographs were all made in New Mexico. They came out of my deep archives. I’ve built a small portfolio of these pictures, all the while wondering what was I thinking for not looking at them closely. Yeah sure, a little time and space adds aContinue reading “Friendly Ghosts”

Out On The Road


WordPress is at it again. The post that I wrote for today is gone. Missing. History. My site was a little twitchy, but I didn’t think anything of it. I pressed the schedule button. Scheduling was confirmed and off I went. Luckily, I was getting to post these pictures about traveling so I had somethingContinue reading “Out On The Road”

Time Passages


You are looking at a slightly renewed New Mexican picture. Eastern New Mexico, that is east of the Sandias and Sangre de Cristo Mountains, looks nothing like the west which is high desert. In the east, the scenery is all grass and farm lands as the state reaches into western Colorado, which doesn’t look anythingContinue reading “Time Passages”

In Another World


Thailand. The name conjures all sorts of thoughts, myths and feelings. Truth be told, once you get outside of big cities the country is incredibly beautiful. The people are very friendly and helpful. And, the cost of living is very inexpensive. Oh, and the food is amazing, especially the street food. City life can beContinue reading “In Another World”

Old Stories


When I was very young, a boy, my parents thought it was a good idea for some of us to spend the summer in Brooklyn. We traded a balmy summer in Long Beach where The Pacific Ocean was just a few miles away for the hot and humid streets of South Brooklyn. We always tookContinue reading “Old Stories”

Night Ride Home


Seating is important. First on, first off. If you’re lucky. If not, you’re not. I was so close to the front that I could hear the veteran driver teach a younger drive where to turn. She was a fine driver. She just had to learn the tricks and traps of the route. As I saidContinue reading “Night Ride Home”
