The predicted high today is 92 degrees. It’s only the first week of May. We haven’t had very much rain to speak of. In some areas, rain fall is under80% of normal rain fall. Granted, we live in the high desert. But, it’s a little too hot, a little too early. And, it’s way too […]


One of my goals when I make travel images is to try to instill a sense of “being there,” or “what is it like to…” I try to do that with my PAD images as well. When I was a young child, my parents took us on a lot of road and train trips. There […]


There is a lot to say about baseball. For one thing, plenty of my pictures a day come from local games. But more importantly, baseball in it’s purest form is can be a metaphor for life. Look at this picture. Isn’t this what baseball is supposed to be about? Isn’t the passing of something from […]


I was listening to a little bit of Jazzfest from New Orleans yesterday via the internet on NOLA.com. I used to live in New Orleans prior to the storm, which is what we call Hurricane Katrina. It made me a little nostalgic. I started thinking about what it was like to live there and how […]

So far, I’ve been mostly posting from Picture A Day 2008. I thought, since it is the start of a new month, that I would show you a picture that I made in the last 12 days. There are a couple of real nice frames tucked away in the general nonsense of what I’ve been […]


May is here. For me, producing a picture a day that means it’s download and post production time. Since I rarely review the month as I shoot it, this is always a very interesting time. How did I do is always a question. But, even more telling is that you can the events of my […]


I like to post to my blog in the morning. But, I’m a little late. The garden had a higher priority. There are tomatoes, and chilies, herbs and fruit — strawberries and blueberries as well as colorful flowers. Now the garden also has cedar chips which should keep it cooler in the heat of the […]


Shooting Picture A Day images are like shooting for any long form project. For a time, I shot a lot of Lonely Planet Publishing Division projects. Most of them were either for their “Condensed” series or for their large trade books. They’d give you a shoot list that number in about the hundreds of locations […]
