Light. The thing itself. We chase it. That’s what we do. That’s what photographers do. Maybe everybody does it. We chase light. Photographers need it to make pictures. Artists use the interplay between light and dark to work. All of us needs light to live. Artificial light is fine, but sunlight is the real deal. […]


A little obsession goes a long way. I’m not talking about the perfume. I’m  talking about a mental and emotional obsession. I’m talking about the one that I have when it comes the closing of 2019. Normally, I don’t really care. It’s just the pages of the calendar turning. Not this time. I can hardly […]


New blooms. In winter. I’ve never seen this plant in the time that I’ve moved here. I’ll have to wait until these blooms open. I think I know what they might be, but I won’t know until I see them. Sorta like life. Make all the plans that you want. The minute you put them […]


Twenty-Nineteen. The year that was. The closing year of the end of a decade. Ups. Downs. All arounds. This year wasn’t as great photographically as it could have been. That was pretty much my fault. Between physical issues and a general lack of motivation I mostly produced a lot of faux nature pictures. Some where […]


A decade. Ten years. 3,650 days. A lot happened. A lot didn’t happen. I can’t remember half of it. That’s probably for the best. But, this is what I know. A made a helluva (that’s a technical term) lot of pictures in ten years. Some were really good. Some were good. And, a lot of […]

I made a few exposures. Sure enough the cloudy sky trapped the night glow which is caused by city lights. The sky looked […]

Christmas in New Orleans. A magical time of year. Living in the semi tropics makes so. Hold on.  It’s Christmas Eve. It’s time for children to go to bed early. A night when the kids leave a plate of cookies and a glass of milk for Santa. It’s a night of hope and wonder. Around […]


Winter. The first day was stormy. It wasn’t a heavy rain. But, it lasted all day and night. The dog who sees stuff wouldn’t go out except to do what she needed to do. The rest of the dogs acted about the same way. If I wasn’t so lazy I would have gone to the […]
