A Little Burst


T here’s no other explanation for it. I must be crazy. I told myself when I decided to rework my website and blog that I was mostly going to feature straight photography. No more experimenting. That lasted about three weeks. There is a difference. In the past. I wouldn’t go as far as I could.Continue reading “A Little Burst”

You Just Have To


T here was big news in New Orleans yesterday. New Orleans Saints (American football) Coach Sean Payton retired. The city is in shock. Some say it’s just a game. I think that the team impacts the city in many ways. Allied jobs rise and fall because of what the team does. He’s an honest man.Continue reading “You Just Have To”

Changes


C old weather and chicken stock. Isn’t that what you do when it’s cold? Cook something. So, that’s what we did. Then, I sat down to write this. I’m always influenced by what, or who, I’m listening to. This time, it’s Brandi Carlile reading her book, “Broken Horses.” It’s bringing up all sorts of emotions.Continue reading “Changes”

Minutes To Memories


L et me tell you a story. A little over six weeks ago Hurricane Ida blew through. While her rainfall didn’t do too much in my neighborhood, 155 mph winds did. They blew down almost every kind of cable and power source. Our power company, Entergy, did the best the they could and had usContinue reading “Minutes To Memories”

Party At Ground Zero

Or maybe I’m just losing my ability to think and remember stuff. I’d like to remember important things. Maybe photographs andContinue reading “Party At Ground Zero”

Another Park, Another Sunday


T he caption says it all. Another way. I keep reading what a great camera the iPhone 12 is supposed to be. I had better be because it’s a terrible phone. I decided to test it. I made this photograph towards the end of dusk. That means I made a time exposure. I wasn’t sureContinue reading “Another Park, Another Sunday”

Mellow Yellow


T here is a period in my life when I liked to make very closely focused pictures that are akin to macro photography. That period started about twenty years ago and continues to this day. Some period, eh? For me, this work is something like a palette cleanser between other, more gritty subjects. Of course,Continue reading “Mellow Yellow”

Who Knew?


L earn something new every day, they say. I did. I learned the name of this flower from a friend of mine who’s lived here forever. Care to guess? It’s an Okra blossom. I never noticed any pods, but even if I had I wouldn’t have known what I was looking at. I always thoughtContinue reading “Who Knew?”
