This is an accidental picture. I wasn’t even thinking about looking for a picture. I looked up and thought “this doesn’t look good.” I did what I could to stop it. I froze time. That’s my magic power. That lasted all of the 1/500th of a second. The clouds kept moving. So did I. I’ve […]


A friend of mine said that music exists in a time and place. He wrote that as part of an acknowledgement to the death of Marty Balin. Who is he, you might ask? He was one of the founders of a seminal band in the middle 1960s. They were called in various incarnations, either Jefferson […]


This is the heart of us. Green. Water. Renewal. I published something like this a couple of weeks ago. I like this version better. There is more water. More droplets. And, much better framing. You already know what I think. So I’ll leave it here. The picture is fairly simple. See it. Take your time. […]


Sun, rain, sun, rain. Rinse and repeat. Sometimes it’s a little bit inconvenient, but it is worth it in the aftermath. Plants, veggies and flowers are growing in wonderful ways.

Sometimes, the sky looks like it’s on fire. Of course, it’s not. It’s just autumn light bouncing off the clouds in wonderful ways. It’s one of those things that you just have to be there to see. Which brings me to this. Recently, there have been a whole bunch of bloggers writing about breaking the […]


Another one. Another picture that makes you smile. A version of yesterday’s post made from a different perspective. And still. That weird light refraction followed me. I have no idea what it was. I think it was some strange bit of light bouncing around the water droplets in the air. Usually, that reflects something in […]


I looked up. I saw it. I have no idea what caused that bright streak in the middle of the cloudy picture. I’ve seen a lot of amazing things in the sky. Some have names. Some don’t. But, that streak? I can’t tell you. I can guess. I made the picture in the late afternoon […]
