Reflections. An image found within a photograph. That’s what you are looking at. An accidental picture. I didn’t see it. The dog didn’t see it. I made another reflection picture. I stooped down to do that. When I stood up I saw this one. Really, part of this one. I had to reposition myself so […]


Nothing but problems. It seems to me that WordPress does not like Safari. It would rather play with Chrome, except that using a Mac causes issues with Chrome. Why can’t they all play nice? It took a good 20 minutes just to get to this page. I still don’t know how to reduce the size […]


Sunday. A good day for something peaceful. Like these little bitty purple wildflowers that I turned into something huge and unreal. I found these flowers when I was doing what I usually do. Walking a dog. She was exploring something nearby when I saw these two little flowers. They were harder to photograph than you […]


Yesterday was interesting to say the least. Apparently, every software company released updates this week. Three hours. That’s how long it took me to get to here. I still don’t think that I’m done because I see that I have six Apple upgrades. I won’t do it if it requires a reboot. That takes forever […]


Staying True. I’m having a conversation with some Photoshelter folks about the so-called Photographers Bill of Rights via a comment section. Most of it concerns photojournalism. That’s where my career started. That’s where my heart lies. I read the entire document. If I’m going to talk about it, I should read it. That’s only fair. […]


the greens of summer. This is our greenest time of year. Between the rain and the dripping humidity, we have an outdoor greenhouse. Everything grows. As we roll into August, the wet season dries out a bit. The hot weather really hits. Instead of the low 90s of July, the temperature rises into the high […]


Clouds. Two days in a row. I could say that I posted them because I felt like it. That’s not the truth. Yesterday’s were after the storm. Today’s were made as the dog and I went for our morning walk. A big storm was coming. In fact, rain fell all day. That was the last […]


The thing that I’m looking for. It’s not really a thing. It’s a person. Me. I’ve written briefly about my paternal family. I knew the family mythology. I knew what we were told. Every bit of it was wrong or a lie. A while back I took Ancestry.com’s DNA test. I reckon not much is […]


When? That’s what everybody wants to know. One of the things that I get paid for its my ability to understand the future. No. I’m not a seer. Not a guru. Not a clairvoyant. I simply do a lot of research. I listen a lot. All the while I’m letting the information roll around in […]
