You Got Gold


A little flora and fauna New Mexican portfolio for your pleasure. Actually, I don’t believe any of the pictures depict either flora or fauna. These are wildflower pictures and tree pictures. They are distinctly New Mexican scenes. I’ve been digging into my archives and finding lost gems. Well, they are to me at least. I’veContinue reading “You Got Gold”

There Is No Soul Behind it


There has been a pretty spirited discussion across multiple socials about AI and photography. The question is simple enough. Is AI photography? Most of the photographers who responded said, “no.” Many photographer’s comments showed that they had no idea what the hell they are talking about, That’s the same problem most of the world hasContinue reading “There Is No Soul Behind it”

Dark In The Computer


This is just plain greed. It’s bad enough that my local NFL football team is the Washington Commanders. I wasn’t the biggest Saints fan, but at least I knew most of the players. I couldn’t find any local channels a few weeks ago, but I didn’t think much of it because we barely watch networkContinue reading “Dark In The Computer”

Over 99 Billion Served


I was playing around with two pictures and just like that they came together into one. That’s when I know I happened onto something good. Happened is right. I doubt that I ever actually make a good image on my own. Luck, the universe, Ronald McDonald or something leads me to the picture. Maybe that’sContinue reading “Over 99 Billion Served”

Green Sky


The end of green. No. Nothing terrible is happening, unless you think winter is terrible. When something ends I head directly to it. Why shouldn’t I? I have nothing of interest to write about — maybe I should just cut it short — but I remember that I follow a website and blog called SensationalContinue reading “Green Sky”


What Remains Home again. This picture is not of home. This was made in New Mexico while a brush fire was burning in the distance. Pretty soon it wasn’t in the distance. It was staring at us. So, we beat feet. I had to know what happened so I returned to the scene. This pictureContinue reading


Change With the change of month I thought I would change my approach and discuss a topic that’s been on my mind a lot. Climate change. I’ll do my best to do it through my artwork and my layering techniques. Of course WordPress had other ideas. It’s probably my fault, but the normal column onContinue reading

Where Time Stands Still


O nce, on a walk, I saw these Doctor Suess-like trees. You know, “Green Eggs and Spam,” “The Cat in the Hat.” Well, maybe. I always thought “The Cat in the Hat” was about Miles Davis. He wore hats most of the time. He certainly was a cat. With a trumpet. He changed music five orContinue reading “Where Time Stands Still”

The Hard Way


T here is a group of photographic artists who have seemed to have determined what contemporary fine art photography should look like. It looks something like this picture, but probably more precious in concept and explanation. A friend of mine, a good photographer, has started to make inroads into that world. And, I have toContinue reading “The Hard Way”
