Road Color


Y esterday’s post was a bit bleak, but it was honest. Authentic, as we say today. We saw an example of it on Thursday night, when the January 6 Committee laid the insurrection at Trump’s feet. And, at his feet it will stay. I’m sure he’ll be hopping mad. Too bad. It was an exerciseContinue reading “Road Color”

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”

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”

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”

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”

Until The End


M ore water. More reflections. Even as we dry out, some things don’t change. I think most people have power. Not everyone has internet, which doesn’t seem important but in the modern world it is. We use Cox. They don’t know what they are doing. They sent us a long email apologizing for the lackContinue reading “Until The End”

Not California


S ometimes in early summer the Mississippi River looks like this, especially after a very snowy winter up north. The snow melts, turns into water and flows into a local river which flows into the Mississippi River. Eventually, the water makes its way down river where either upriver gates are opened to spread it outContinue reading “Not California”

Something Wild


S ummer is our rainy season. We had an amazing amount of rain this month. They said we had five times the normal amount of rain for a July. That’s something for us because July is very wet. The constant rain gets a little bit tiresome, but it does yield scenes like this one. It’sContinue reading “Something Wild”
