Somewhere Under Heaven


T his is a New Mexico picture. Sometimes I just see shapes and I want to see what they look when I photograph them. I’d forgotten this picture until Amazon found it some buried sub-archive. Boy, was I happily surprised. I’d tell you that this is an adobe wall, but it is not. It is someContinue reading “Somewhere Under Heaven”

Believe in Life


C atching up. Or, Ketchup. Just as I predicated, violence begets violence. There was a protest in Wisconsin. Black people came out to protest the Rittenhouse Verdict. Standing guard on the perimeter where serious looking Black men armed with long guns also known as AR-15s. That verdict made everyone fair game on the street. WeContinue reading “Believe in Life”

Going Down, Down, Down


P lans. I had some plans for today’s post. A nice, peaceful post for a Saturday afternoon. Then Kyle Rittenhouse was found not guilty of all charges. He killed two men and wounded a third. I needn’t recap the entire event because I’m sure you are aware of it. What happened next is heartbreaking. AContinue reading “Going Down, Down, Down”

Coming Home


T oday got rolling just about the time I got up. I told you that I was going to get busy. I didn’t think that I meant right this second. I thought I could cruise into the work a little bit at a time. Silly me. I made my first mistake when I started listeningContinue reading “Coming Home”

Different Kinds Of Light


T here haven’t been very many new pictures made this week. I haven’t been inspired or pushed out the door, which is the usual fix. I was working in my so-called digital studio when I saw the afternoon light playing on the walls. I just photographed what I saw. You are seeing some of itContinue reading “Different Kinds Of Light”

Traces


The caption says it best. All on a wall. I was headed to my car after having coffee with Kim of Glover Gardens. She happened to be passing through on her way from Bay St. Louis to Houston. After she went her way and I went mine I saw this art-driven store. I looked inContinue reading “Traces”

A Pay Phone. Two Ways.


This is Netflix’ fault. Or, Amazon Prime’s. I forget which one. I started out with a nice simple graphic image of an abandoned pay phone. It was cleaned up nicely by whoever owns the boarded up building. There is no actual phone and all the wires are removed. It looked sort of cool as a graphic image soContinue reading “A Pay Phone. Two Ways.”

Circles


Sometimes you see it. Sometimes you can’t miss it. I was on my way to someplace else when this wall just reached out and hit me in the head. Right between the eyes. Sheesh. How could I miss this? I intentionally left out anything that could add scale, but the biggest circle is at leastContinue reading “Circles”

They Say, “They Devil is in The Details.” Not Here.


This is a detail. That old saying doesn’t apply here. Devils are banned from this place. They can’t be in this detail. All you have to do is read the sign. What devil is gonna mess with a Central City pastor? The interesting thing about this little parking lot is that I’ve driven by itContinue reading “They Say, “They Devil is in The Details.” Not Here.”
