Standing At The Crossroads


T he Oscars. The failing Oscars. We don’t watch the, We don’t even watch the Grammys and we have a vested interest in them. Two vested interests in fact. Awards shows are dead. But. Will Smith and Chris Rock tried to liven this one up. Insult Jada Pinkett- Smith and Will walked to the stageContinue reading “Standing At The Crossroads”

Into The Darkness


E verything can’t be taught, like making pictures that look like this one. It’s simple enough to do, but would you? It’s one of my classic drive by, or better yet, a drive through picture. I used to do this a lot but I think that my hand – eye coordination is lacking a littleContinue reading “Into The Darkness”

Twilight


I had a lot to talk about. Apparently, it wasn’t that important because I can’t think of any of it. Sleep on it, they say. Seems to have worked. At any rate, I’m back. But, I’m not sure for how long. I tried to switch my extension to the one I’ve had for 30 years.Continue reading “Twilight”

Something About Stars


H urricanes and water. That’s what we are looking at. We are also looking at a full frame picture, not something made on a phone. It is a reason to leave Louisiana. Two 100 year storms in 16 years. First came Katrina. Then, came Ida. That’s enough right there. It’s enough not to have powerContinue reading “Something About Stars”

Not to Blame


L et’s start with this. Thank you to those of you who expressed your sympathies about my pain issues. I still haven’t heard from my doctor. I wonder how he’s gonna feel after about 75% of his earnings go into my pocket. Even though he doesn’t care about me, I take my life seriously. EContinue reading “Not to Blame”

Welcome Back Too


E ven though I did a lot to this picture in post production, I’m staying with only one column. I decided to do a lot of work to this picture because I wanted to experiment in a couple of ways. Before we get into that, my doctor’s office’s ears must have been burning. They calledContinue reading “Welcome Back Too”

Water, Water, Water


A nother drive by shooting. Well, sorta. I was waiting for the light to change looking at the traffic in front me. I had an ah ha moment. I turned off the windshield wipers to let the rain water accumulate. When there was enough water I made a few pictures. The light turned green andContinue reading “Water, Water, Water”

The Hard Way


H ave you ever shared a dream? We did. This morning. I woke up thinking ,”Whew, what a dream.” I was thinking about what I saw and felt, when from the other side of the bed came, “Oh my God, what a dream.” I started talking about my dream and pretty soon she was fillingContinue reading “The Hard Way”

Standing In The Rain


S torms bring and leave their own unique beauty. That’s what I was attempting to capture in order to give you an idea of what it feels like when a big storm moves into my neighborhood. I think of this picture not as a photograph, but as art. Art isn’t often literal. It’s autobiographical inContinue reading “Standing In The Rain”
