Early spring. At least it was for us down here in the swamp. This picture was made in mid-February. Before the storm. Before the war. Before the killing era of the virus. It feels like years ago. Time may have become flexible and meaningless, but that translates into some kind long term distortion. For sure, […]


I’d write about winter. But. it seems aside from a cold front moving in yesterday, our winter looks like most people’s spring. I was surprised to see these little guys in full bloom.  When I say little I mean it. Through the magic of a macro lens I was able to make the flowers look […]


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 […]


This idea came to me in a dream. I’m not sure what it means. The dream, or the work. Rather than just stuff it all back inside me head I thought it would be a good idea to explore it. I made layers. You’ve seen both pictures in the past. Bright yellow flower and red […]

“You belong among the wildflowers, You belong in a boat out at sea, Sail away, kill off the hours, You belong somewhere you feel free.”  — Tom Petty I often forget that once things start to cool off around this swamp, a second growing season appears out of nowhere. I was doing a little walking […]


Magic. Just call me Mister Lizard. Oops. I meant wizard. The work really isn’t so wizardly. It’s just a matter of seeing in the field, knowing what you want to do in post production and executing. I wish it was just that easy building websites, or adding on to a WordPress blog site. Unfortunately, it […]


Just color. Back to my later origins. Back to seeing what most people can’t see. Back to leading people to their own questions. With luck, I’ll blend this with my true beginnings — photojournalism — and, I’ll make some real pictures along the line of my first summer picture. The boy on his bike with […]


There it was. The sun was peaking through a slight gap in the branches of a tree. There were little pink blossoms everywhere. What a morning scene. I did what I do. I started to make pictures. Auto focus was having a very tough time with such strong backlighting and direct sunlight into the lens. […]
