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 […]


A unique approach. After two days of clouds, I’m pretty sure that you are getting a little bored. So, I went the other way. I published something that is art for its own sake. Sometimes you just have to do something for fun. Especially now, when 2020 seems like the devil’s spawn. I don’t think […]


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 […]

Ray’s Blue. That’s what an editor called it. It’s really carillon blue. Whenever I was working around dusk I would hope for it. This rarely happens in Southeastern Louisiana because of our never ending humidity. Humidity is really composed of tiny drops of water that reflect red light. That tends to mute sky colors. Normally.

This is very rare. Sophie Rose never poses for a picture. I guess that she felt like it. Or, maybe she knew that I hadn’t made a picture for the day. Anyway. This is the all seeing dog. The dog who finds pictures and waits while I make it. Sometimes, she looks up at me […]


More reflections. I’m really not a nature photographer. For many years I took no notice of it. Along came really good smart phones with cameras that could produce fairly high quality images. Phones are ubiquitous. We carry them everywhere. Like on dog walks. I started seeing things that interested me, so I started making pictures. […]
