I showed you my experimental picture yesterday. The base picture was lucky and accidental. I made a turn and made another turn. There it was. A picture. Or, the beginnings of one. Sometimes, I make a picture knowing that what I captured was not more than a foundation. A starting place. Sometimes I even know what […]


I was going to call this, “One Way.” If you look closely you can see why. But, this picture went through so many changes that I did it again. I borrowed a few words from a bit of a song. It’s a cover song has been newly released. I really like the new version. Here’s the line […]


I guess by now it’s pretty obvious to you that I borrow bits of song lyrics or even song titles to write the headlines. This one comes from a song called, “The Neighborhood,” by Tom Waits. It sort of suits these pictures. But… It’s not as bad as it looks. As I was wandering in around […]


This is it. The last one. The last building on the lake side of the street. Yes, there are a couple of walls here and there, but the buildings are gone. I doubt this building is coming down anytime soon since people live and work in it. No. Not homeless people. People who have actually […]

There are broken bricks and bits of glass in this picture. There used to be a graffiti covered building here; made of concrete, brick and iron. Homeless people took shelter here. Sometimes they lived […]

You know it rained. I told you that my pictures were a little ragged. They are. Even my dancing friend’s pictures are soft and a little motion blurred. But, not in a good way. So, I tinkered with them a little. Well, a lot. I tried to make this picture look old, like something faded […]


Yeah. This place feels like home. My kind of home. We had one of the longest days ever. Since today closed the second line season I wanted to be in New Orleans. But, we were in Brooklyn. What to do? What to do? We knew what to do. They say that if God wanted man to […]
