Colorful Time


My own personal fantasy. Color, light, reflection, refraction, dusk, blue hour, rain, water, sparkle, a thousand points of light, circles, shapes, shining, patterns. That’s what makes these pictures just a little different.

It’s Just A State Of Mind


I’ve been listening to the newly re-released Revolver by The Beatles. The album is amazingly richer and fuller than the original. Normally, remasters don’t sound “right” to me. Something is off but it’s nothing I can put my finger on. Not this one. Whew! In order to make the album salable about 50 years afterContinue reading “It’s Just A State Of Mind”

Out Of The Blue


Playful. That’s what I’ve been. Even though I told tales of sadness and passing yesterday, it appears that opened me up for something else, something better. Where I come from they say to tell another human being, or to name and claim it. For me, that usually works until the next time. I guess it’sContinue reading “Out Of The Blue”

Passing


George Harrison said all things must pass. Time passes. People pass. Places pass. Things pass. That’s what I’ve been thinking about lately. I don’t know where it started, maybe in a dream. I’ve probably said this, but many of my dreams are search dreams. Mostly the take place in a ruined city. Everything is rusty,Continue reading “Passing”

Wonderment


These are the days of innocence and wonder, so said Paul Simon. These days, I say, “yeah, don’t you wish?” But, nothing stops us from living life as we wish. I’m not talking about the very practical matters of earning a living and keeping your home moving. Only a few people have that luxury, butContinue reading “Wonderment”

Watching The River Flow


No experiments today. No messing around. No disco. No party. Just a pure photograph. A new photograph that I made by accident. That happens sometimes. I was walking to one place when my phone rang and a voice came through the line that said, “Take a picture, you fool.” Not really, but I stopped walkingContinue reading “Watching The River Flow”

The Great Chase


Once upon a time I used to make pictures like this on a regular basis. I’m not sure why I stopped. It wasn’t a conscience decision. I just sort of let it fade away. I’m thinking that before I slip out of New Orleans for good I should wander around the city making these kindContinue reading “The Great Chase”

Like Jazz


The change in the weather is getting to me. It would help if I stayed in one place, but I travel from hot, humid and wet, on to hot and wet, to cooler and dry. I don’t know where I am. My brain doesn’t know either. Worse, my sinuses think that I’m on a rollerContinue reading “Like Jazz”

Cold, Cold, Cold
