The Picture Begins With The Past


The day’s conclusion. I wrote about “Ray’s Blue” yesterday. Of course, I twisted the color around so much that you barely got to see it. Not this time. The sun was low in the sky. Darkness was almost upon me. I made a few quick pictures, unsure if I had an image. I didn’t haveContinue reading “The Picture Begins With The Past”

Down on the Corner


Blue Hour. A little mysterious. A little funky. Sometimes deep and dark. It’s a great time to make pictures, especially as late blue hour turns into night. If you like working on that edge take care. Street level details will fade into the shadows. That’s what you are seeing in this photograph. I opened theContinue reading “Down on the Corner”

Learning


I hope you’ve me followed this deep. I’d love some feedback. Positive — of course. Negative — because it’s needed. All About learning Learn from me if you’d like. You are going to be right behind me. I like challenges, but many of you won’t. There is an old school template that I believe predatesContinue reading “Learning”

Sometimes in Winter


A little more magic. That’s what I saw when I was developing this picture. I didn’t quite know what I had when I pressed the button. But, after… wow! In many ways, This image reverts back to a style I used in the late 1990’s. Tilted. Skewed. A little motion. And, very bold colors. IContinue reading “Sometimes in Winter”

Deep Blue


This is what I saw. A deep blue sky at just around dusk. I was lucky to make the picture. This is one of those times when a tripod might come in handy. In my own defense, I wasn’t expecting to see such a sight. So, I did what I could. Dan Rather tweets andContinue reading “Deep Blue”

The Long Way Home


The long way home. After a long day driving upriver towards Baton Rouge on the Westbank’s River Road, I came to this little spot in the road. Blue hour coming. Dusk coming. Trains on one side. Power lines on both sides making great leading lines. What could be better? Actually, there are two River Roads.Continue reading “The Long Way Home”

Shelter From The Storm


“Come in,” she said, “I’ll give you shelter from the storm.” So wrote Bob Dylan. Where is that shelter? Again, a year to the day of the Pittsburgh shooting, and not more than two weeks from the last mass shooting, a Jewish synagogue was attacked. Four wounded. One dead. A woman died attempting to protectContinue reading “Shelter From The Storm”

On the Dark End of the Street


The quiet side. Most people think of the French Quarter as being loud. They think of people always partying. They think of the typical New Orleans craziness. Let me tell you, we ain’t all that crazy. We don’t spend much time in the Quarter. When we do, we rarely walk around on Bourbon Street. It’sContinue reading “On the Dark End of the Street”

Motion in New Orleans


All motion. For years I made a career out of pictures like this one. Motion. Movement. Energy. It wasn’t hard to do. About 1/4 second at f/5.6 and I’d make a picture likes this one. But, that was the film days. When digital photography came into being sharpness was everything. That’s why mega pixels becameContinue reading “Motion in New Orleans”
