More Tests & Second Lines


Second Lines and Experiments I’m reminding myself that many pictures could use a crop or two. I typically try to fill the frame with the subject that I want within the borders of the picture. That’s not always easy. If you photograph sports the subject is moving, and the photographer is stationary. If you photographContinue reading “More Tests & Second Lines”

Me And My Mountain


I thought that it would be a good idea to show you what it’s like to be on The Sandias rather than just show you the mountain range from a distance. I made this picture in late Autumn. It was so cold up there that I had to wear gloves until I actually was shooting.Continue reading “Me And My Mountain”

In My Life


N ot business as usual. Not this week, not any week. We’ve all been through something, the worst of which might be over, but it is not over yet. People are still getting sick. We had to cancel two shows. A crew member was sick. America seems to have declared, “pandemic over.” It isn’t. ItContinue reading “In My Life”

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”

When Dogs Run Free


E veryone gets a Mardi Gras parade. Even dogs. Out of town guests don’t believe me when I tell them about Krewe of Barkus. They think that I’m joking. Do these pictures look like I’m joking? The dogs and their people meet up in Armstrong Park. Any dog can join in, but to actually beContinue reading “When Dogs Run Free”

Round Here


W et. That’s what late June and July are in Southeast Louisiana, wet. If we aren’t getting a lot of rain, the skies are gray and the air is very humid. So far, we’ve been lucky. The temperatures haven’t risen above 90 degrees except on two days and that was the high. If we didn’tContinue reading “Round Here”

Party At Ground Zero


The trolls are coming out of the woodwork the closer we get to Fat Tuesday. One guy said that he had just arrived in New Orleans. He asked what there was to do. Many, many, many people replied sincerely. Something felt off so I went to his Facebook page. He lives in Chalmette, a wholeContinue reading “Party At Ground Zero”

All A Reflection


Yesterday is gone. And, good riddance. It started bad and it ended worse. You didn’t see me here because my Cox modem/router failed. They wanted $75 because I didn’t have customer care. Okay, okay. I have a good idea of what this gear costs. But, when I said yes to having a technician visit, heContinue reading “All A Reflection”

Remains


On a very humid walk. We found these branches that were what remained of our storms. Wasn’t sure about them until I photographed them and started processing them. Once I started stripping them back and allowed their natural color to emerge I knew the picture might work. That’s one of my secret sauces. I don’tContinue reading “Remains”
