A Little Too Much
This flooding happens every few years in New Orleans. The city doesn’t flood, but on the Westbank there are low lying buildings and a few roads. Not much really gets damaged, but the water sure does look a little scary. That little building that looks like a house is really part of a small amusement…
We looked at each other and we knew. That’s how it started years ago. It happened again today while we were listening to a podcast. That’s nothing new. We listen to four or five a day. But this one. Ezra Klein talks to Rick Rubin. For those who don’t know, Rubin is an A class…
What Have We Lost?
We read a lot. Blogs. Newspapers. Magazines. Podcasts. (Listen to, not read) One favorite author is Margaret Rynkl who mostly writes for the New York Times. She covers just about everything south from a very gentle perspective. Today, she said, “You’re pointing your camera the wrong way.” She was mostly referring to the billions of…
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 after…
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’s…
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,…
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, but…
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 walking…
