To get here. Even though we haven’t physically gone anywhere, it feels like we have traveled forever. We are burned out from exhaustion. We are tired of the trail. We miss our friends. Our family. We miss our colleagues. We miss our lives. I’m not sure that we are ever going to get these things […]


All in my head. I saw one scene. I photographed it. I saw another scene. I photographed it. When the time came I combined them. Oooh. Spooky. The picture does have an eerie feeling to it. Like something out of H.P. Lovecraft. Can’t you just see Cthulhu lurking back in those trees? Lovecraft wrote in […]


Away in the weather. I wasn’t driving in that place during the storms. But, before and after are good targets. The main idea is to give you a sense of our wonderful weather down here in Southeastern Louisiana. During this time of year we often get a short but violent storm about every other day. […]


One drop. Of sunlight. The all seeing dog and I finally got outside around dusk. She won’t go out if rain is falling on her. The rain gave up earlier in the afternoon but she was doing the other thing she does best. Sleeping. We walked the long way and saw these last few flowers […]


Leaving well enough alone. I just can’t seem to do that. Have a look at the picture below this little bit of text and tell me why I just had to go further. Puleeese. See? It just seems like a lot of extra work for not much return. The top image was layered three times. […]


Not that late. No. We aren’t under siege. Hurricane Lucy will hit Lake Charles likely as a Category 4 storm. I haven’t been there for a long time. The city isn’t as little as I described it. Not anymore. They are bigger than we are. They are a city of 780,000 people. That makes them […]


Days in between. Marco fell apart. The tropical warnings came down. We got a little wind and even less rain. Dodged it. Now comes Laura. She won’t even come close to New Orleans. She will make landfall as a Category 2 or 3 hurricane around Lake Charles. I have a fond spot in my heart […]


The truth about nature. She does whatever she wants. You can’t control her and you can’t predict her. It seems to me that she is showing that in three ways. We can’t get our arms around a rampant virus. The west is burning. And, we are being threatened with two hurricanes at once. We dodged […]


Relaxation. For most of us the water does it. We get heated up in the sunlight, cool off with a dip in the pool. And, if you are smart you just let yourself float and drift around like this guy. I’ve seen him in the past. I waited and watched, I showed some restraint and […]
