I am NOT laughing at you who live in places where it so terribly cold. Instead, I’m showing you what we get for putting up with New Orleans things. We have a high murder rate (two weekends in a row). We have an ancient water system that breaks every week. We have a terrible street […]


A long December. For me it’s a time of review. Not just for 2019, but for the decade since 2020 is the start of a decade. It’s also just not only about me. It’s about the state of the planet. The state of being. And, it’s about the people that I’ve lost. The people who […]


Look up. Sometimes, that’s where the picture lies. I did that the other night at around dusk. I was housebound and I need to get outside for a few minutes. I made the picture about ten steps from the door. Is there a lesson in there someplace? Nah. I’ve preached enough about going outside when […]


The headline say it all. Reaching. Bare trees look like they are reaching toward each other. It’s not a compositional trick. It’s not a camera trick. It’s not an accident. It’s just what I saw. I think it’s a giant irony. As trees reach toward other, humans are fracturing more and more. Further polarization is […]


Just when I thought I was out, I was pulled back in. Actually, I went looking for these leaves. They are still hanging around on trees called Japanese Maples. They turn fall colors later in the season. And, the color lasts longer once the leaves do start to change. I knew where I thought I […]

Let me tell you, that doesn’t happen very often. It was kind of a fluke. Kind of photographer’s luck. Kind of what […]


I know what I said. I was wrong. I found this tree a day or two after I said that all the leaves were down. However, I walked by it this morning thinking I’d add to the red collection. Now, I can safely say that all the leaves are down. The street was covered in […]


Didn’t I say it? Didn’t I say that in just one day the brightly colored autumn trees turned bare? That the still living leaves fell to the ground in faded piles? Well, here it is. The proof. When I photographed this tree, we were out just around dusk. That didn’t matter since the sky was […]
