A Decade


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 them fall under the heading of “what was I thinking? ”  I spent way too much time photographing my version of faux nature. As I reviewed that work I realized that no matter how I try to see things differently, I keep repeating just about everything. That’s bad news for a guy like me who wants to move forward.

I spent two years of the decade in New Mexico, so that is reflected here. Luckily, I do like the two New Mexican pictures a lot. There are eight New Orleans pictures. Culling them was hard. There are at least six others that could have made the cut. I opted to go with pictures that I really like rather than some signature images.

The pictures are organized in no particular order. The best pictures come to me whenever they do. You know. “Don’t take the picture, let the picture take you.” I’m certain that these pictures are not chronological, but they are an honest representation of what I believe are my ten best pictures of this closing decade.

I hope that you enjoy them. I enjoyed making them.

    1. Go where? I’m old school enough that I never delete anything. Keeping the out takes is a good way to learn. And, back in the day in order to store negatives you had to cut and sleeve them in strips of 5 or 6. If you pulled out the good stuff, you’d never be able to file them.
