Today, you get two. Two posts. One just an hour earlier than this one. I scheduled one for yesterday morning as usual. But, I bought a new iPad, I changed some operating systems which caused WordPress to be so confused that I can’t even remove the App for the new iPad in order to reinstall […]


A little skull for you. Because we are into our long Halloween weekend. Because it seems normal in the swamp that I call home. Because I saw it. Because I made the picture. Simple. Like a skull. The picture. It’s pretty much as I described it. f5.6 and be there. I worked on it a […]

Broken trees. And, lots of newly dropped leaves. Everywhere. Prior to the storm the city sent out tweets and texts asking us to make […]


Sunsets. Everybody loves them. Me too. But, I don’t often photograph them unless there is some special quality to the light. There are a couple of reasons for this.
