A special place. That’s what I’d hoped for when I returned from the desert, like a prophet, back to the swamp. Well, I’m no prophet. And, this isn’t that place. I don’t know about the rest of you, but during this period of down time I’ve had a lot of time to think. After all, […]


Memories. The Sandias near Albuquerque, New Mexico. This was one of the last pictures I made in the state before we returned to New Orleans. Originally, the picture was bright and bold.
