I couldn’t help myself. As pretty as yesterday’s version of this picture was, I had to take it to the limit. One more time. This image is the result. I replied to one of you yesterday that I made a new version of the picture. I also said this location is not far from the […]


A little different color palate. But, the same vision. Under my theory of letting the picture take me, I decided not to turn this into some kind of apocalyptic nightmare. Instead, I thought about how this time and place felt. I built on that. A lot. The road is Highway 95 somewhere near Tonopah, Nevada. If you recall, […]


I seem to be stuck in a western mode. That could be telling me something. Maybe a long road trip is due. But, it would be really long. I’m not going to take this trip many more times. So, I probably should make the best of it. And, just go. Of course, there are complications. […]


You just never know. You’re driving along and you see something that interests you. You stop. You starting making pictures. You start talking.

It was about a nine-hour trip for Long Beach. Or, about a five-hour trip from the Bay Area. I had family there. Old family friends that […]


Texas. Even the name conjures up all sorts of meaning. Cowboys. The West. Freedom. Big food. Big hair. Big hats. I’m pretty sure that most people think don’t about space aliens when they think about Texas. I found this interestingly shaped house when I was traveling around Texas back country. I didn’t stop. I didn’t ask. […]


So. A cold front passed through Southeast Louisiana. The temperatures dropped into the upper 50s. That might be on the warm side for some of you right about now. Obviously, I didn’t make this picture yesterday. But, the notion of a cold front started my brain spinning around. Especially this late in the year. We […]


One thing leads to another. While I was poking around my newly resurrected archives looking for the Earth day picture, I found this one. I made it in Shanghai, China in 1989. In those days Shanghai was still a dark city. No lighting. Electricity was marginal. You bought your groceries in little shops or on […]
