Starting somewhere. It came to me last night. I’ve known all along that the pandemic was going to change a lot of things forever. Small businesses will close. Shopping centers too. Restaurants operate on a razor thin margin. Many will close. New ones may replace them. They will be created for the new world before […]


Around dusk. Dusk. Purple skies for which to be grateful. The picture doesn’t exactly look like clouds, but trust me, they are. I was out walking, I wasn’t doing too much talking, when I looked up and saw this. Whew. Nature outdid herself, I thought. I went on a fool’s mission of trying not to […]


Nothing but problems. It seems to me that WordPress does not like Safari. It would rather play with Chrome, except that using a Mac causes issues with Chrome. Why can’t they all play nice? It took a good 20 minutes just to get to this page. I still don’t know how to reduce the size […]


The culture stood vigil last night. In couldn’t go. Masking and distancing is still to fraught with danger for me. If I caught the virus my body couldn’t produce enough red platelets to fight it. So, I found this portrait, which I made out of another picture and thought that I’d share it and some […]


Reflecting. That’s what I’ve been doing. I had a long post planned for today that I’d written and ready to go. I had to change it. The city’s culture bearers are in mourning tonight, as am I. Black Masking Indians You might know them as Mardi Gras Indians, but they prefer the name Black Masking […]


A lot of photographers were working last night. The sky turned magic. Some of us photographed into the light. Some from the back of the scene. Others scrambled around looking for a subject to stick in front of the amazing light. I gave up and went to my usual haunt. I made this photograph. Looking […]


The inside. That’s where I’ve been for the last few days. Taking stock. Reviewing. Remembering. Celebrating and mourning. The totals don’t look so good. There may be a great opportunity to do something about that. As you know, I don’t ever want us to return to normal if we ever manage the virus. And, I […]


Sunday. A good day for something peaceful. Like these little bitty purple wildflowers that I turned into something huge and unreal. I found these flowers when I was doing what I usually do. Walking a dog. She was exploring something nearby when I saw these two little flowers. They were harder to photograph than you […]


My eyes. I see things that others might not. I think this is the part of photography that can’t be taught. This is where talent comes into play. It’s not artistic talent. It’s not like being able to paint. Or, play music. That’s talent. Seeing is something else entirely. It’s something given to those of […]


Yesterday was interesting to say the least. Apparently, every software company released updates this week. Three hours. That’s how long it took me to get to here. I still don’t think that I’m done because I see that I have six Apple upgrades. I won’t do it if it requires a reboot. That takes forever […]


Red. The color of fire and blood, of intensity, passion, desire and love. Maybe that’s it. Maybe so many people are worn out by the five months we’ve been through that there’s no passion. No intensity. Maybe that’s the answer. Maybe it’s time to put on our pants and get to work. That’s what the […]
