I think that I’ve circled around. I made another version of this picture on a different day. The last time I did this I turned the meters into junk via heavy post production. This time I used a template that I used for something more natural like a flower. I was surprised at how well […]


Into the sky we go. On a jet. On an airplane. Going somewhere. On business. For pleasure. Maybe going home. Some of us white knuckling the take off. Some of us not caring. Some of us drunk enough to board the plane. I posted a very heavily reworked picture of another plane taking off a […]


Two approaches. One before. One after. The news these days hasn’t been so good. In fact, yesterday’s news was downright bleak. Like anyone who is loosely called an artist, that affects me. As it does, us all. After yesterday’s picture, I thought I would publish something lighter. Something brighter. Something happy. The top picture is […]


I’m taking a step forward. Or, back. It all depends on how you look at it. I haven’t been playing enough. I haven’t been experimenting enough. I haven’t been having enough fun. Like many people, in this age of nastiness, meanness and cruelty. I’ve been taking things far too seriously. So. While the dogarito was […]


A mushroom. In nature. Not to be picked or eaten. The dogarito won’t even smell them. She knows earthy poison when she sees it. I didn’t do much to the picture. I mostly just made it look earthy. Just like I saw it. So. Yesterday. My thanks to Gregory and Sharon for showing us what […]


Blue. I made this picture that last time that we had rain. Seems like about ten days ago. According to the weather folks, we won’t see rain until sometime next week. That would be good except the temperature is still in the upper 90s and the humidity is in the 80% range. That means there is […]


A semi-tropical place. Yep. That’s us. We look that way. The heat feels that way. The humidity feels that way. Essentially, we live in an outdoor hothouse. Even when the cooler air and lower sun of winter rolls around, we are still a hothouse. We just don’t feel it. I was out wandering around with […]


Flower Fantasy. I have to look in the shady parts of the dogs’ walks. That’s where I find this stuff. That’s also where I decide that I can’t make a more “normal” picture. That I have to make some a little different so that I can eventually play with it in post production. In this […]


Dancing flowers and a dog walk. I was a little late to this place. Still there was a little spring color left to catch my eye. It took some work, in the field and in post production, because this group was a little out of reach for my smart phone. If I actually got serious […]
