No matter what you think. The picture isn’t it. Unless you look at the curve at the top, which is really the bottom. Yeah. Sure. This is one of those scenes that I return to when I can’t find a subject to suit a great sky. But, it’s different. It’s a reflection made by pointing […]


Nice, low golden light. That’s what I saw when I was outside. I needed a subject and there wasn’t one. Until I looked closer. A lot closer. Even those these berries look fairly large in the picture, they aren’t. They are about the size of my pinkie fingernail. Except that they are round. I don’t […]


It happened again. I got a little bored last night so I started playing with another human being in post production. This time, it was a Mardi Gras Indian Wildman who I photographed on the Westbank for their Super Sunday. As I recall, it was a busy Sunday. There were two second lines on the […]


Falling Water. Fallen Leaves. Let’s just emphasize that in case you didn’t read the caption. I like that little turn of a phrase. I could write it again just to make sure that you understand. Nah. Y’all are smart readers. I stumbled on this picture a few days ago. I thought I would save it […]


I wanted to play. So. I did. I wanted to see just how some of my new approaches to layering would work on a human being. The only place I’ve used them is on nature pictures. After poking around on my admittedly limited smart phone archive I found a portrait of a Zulu Tramp. I […]


Today. There is finally a little different feeling in the air. The air itself doesn’t feel like a hot, wet, wool blanket draped over everything in sight. And, when you are standing or sitting in shade, you actually feel cooler than when you are in direct sunlight. That’s a big deal. During the height of […]


Oops. I almost forget. In my effort to publish second line pictures, I almost forget that yesterday was the real start to autumn. To the fall season. Luckily, I’ve been finding and making pictures for the past couple of days. So, no worries. I have two favorite seasons. Spring and Fall. Both are about changes. […]


This was a big one. The Young Men Olympians Social and Benevolent Society were celebrating their 135th anniversary. Just about everybody I knew came out. I reunited with photographers that I haven’t seen in years. That’s the exact spirit of any second line. They are about hanging with family and friends. They are about a […]


Something awoke. It started by binging 11-22-1963 on Hulu. If you haven’t seen it, you should. It’s a Stephen King book made into something else entirely. I won’t tell you much in case you do decide to see it. The title should tell you that the book is about the assassination of JFK. I can […]
