The Complexity of Mardi Gras


Mardi Gras. What it is. What it isn’t. This post is driven by a couple of comments I read on Facebook. It seems that a small city in Indiana might not be able to have Mardi Gras because a bar closed. Really? Is that what you think of Mardi Gras? Sure, we have big parades.Continue reading “The Complexity of Mardi Gras”

Sloooow


I had other plans. This wasn’t the picture that I was going to publish today. I had something grander planned. But, Apple came along and did it’s thing again sometime early in the morning. Not only did those bastards download stuff that I didn’t ask for, but they changed every setting. It took a goodContinue reading “Sloooow”

Motion


Mardi Gras Parades. All about motion. Movement. Energy. Often, it’s hard to show that. Motion is thought of being better portrayed on video. I don’t make videos. I do it using still cameras. I’ve done that since the days of film. For a time, I made my career on that. The trick is to findContinue reading “Motion”

Faster Than Me


Too much. Either I’m working much slower, or I’m working much more. Or, both. Either way, I can’t seem to keep up on my posts. While I’ve edited and processed my raw files, I’ve got a long way to go until they are ready to be seen. So. This is an image that I madeContinue reading “Faster Than Me”

Beginings


The first one. The first Uptown Mardi Gras parade. Normally on the first night shoot during Mardi Gras, I’m trying to knock off the rust. Not this time. I had an almost perfect shoot. Not only that, but getting there and parking was easy. I parked as close to the parade route as I could.Continue reading “Beginings”

Purple Furple


Ah yes. Purple. Purple Furble. I don’t know why that old joke came back to me. Back in the old folkie days, when songs were heard in a haze, a friend with whom I grew up heard the wrong words to a song and said, “Oh wow. Purple Furple.” This may be due to “learning.”Continue reading “Purple Furple”

Bare Trees. Winterlude. Again. As we head towards spring in the swamps, we have a weather pattern that is up and down. Cold. Wet. Warm. Humid. Cold. Rinse. Repeat. Ten times. I made this picture a few days ago. I was bragging about our warm spring like days. Then. This. Luckily, I really like thisContinue reading “Page 43”

More Learning


To everything there is a season. My season seems to by learning in some of its purest forms. I could also curse this thing. It’s really opened me up. That’s a good thing. It’s helping me to see with different eyes. It’s helping me feel with a different heart. But. It’s also bringing up emotionsContinue reading “More Learning”
