Blue seems about right. It’s quiet. It’s comforting. It brings peace. Just as I sat down to write I learned that Little Richard passed. One more death in a season of deaths. Last night I learned that a guy I knew in New Orleans passed. Another death in a season of death. It’s enough to […]


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. I […]
