Testing. One, Two, Three…


There was yet another big discussion about producing pictures using artificial intelligence V using some kind of camera. It took place in a photographer’s group so you can guess which way the majority of the posters went. Morality aside and as long as you are clear which kind of tools you used who cares whatContinue reading “Testing. One, Two, Three…”

New Orleans


Once, I was trapped in the CBD of New Orleans on another streetcar. I thought that I would make a few pictures from the window. This is the result including a hard vertical crop to give it some style, shape and class. My musical miss said something the other day that I wasn’t aware of.Continue reading “New Orleans”

Magical Quarter


I’m still working on my phone. They tell me this is the new world. Everyday is the new world or so it seems. I made this picture in The French Quarter. In New Orleans. Then, I played with the file to make it look like I was painting with light. That’s what you are seeing.Continue reading “Magical Quarter”

Memphis in Winter


I’ve been working a little in the past mostly because I keep finding “lost” images in my archives. I don’t understand something about that. I use a couple of cloud services for backup. One is Apple’s cloud. It’s because it’s on all my digital tools. The iMac, iPhone, iPad and a backup Samsung phone. EveryContinue reading “Memphis in Winter”

Getting back to strictly photography, I once wrote that IContinue reading “Cold, Cold, Cold”

The Beginning


T he beginning. The very first time. I was traveling in New York City with a couple of friends. When we got to Times Square I started making a few pictures. One of those friends, a well thought of National Geographic photographer — a real one, not one of those who had the luck toContinue reading “The Beginning”

Almost Dark


W ow, oh wow, oh wow. This is another picture that’s been reworked and cropped. What I didn’t notice until I enlarged it are some of the details. The upstairs windows are new, if new means chopped out of the wall in the late 1800s. How do I know? Aside from the sloppy finishing jobContinue reading “Almost Dark”

Ever South


A nother day. Another block. Another time. Another house. This is a place that I know for certain was damaged by Hurricane Katrina. I’ve watched it over the years. It follows the laws of nature with the overgrowth. In the winter, such as it is in the Gulf Coast, you can see more of theContinue reading “Ever South”
