Water in motion. Clean. Pure. Healthy. And, wet.  Very wet. Cooling wet. Every now and then, I get away just a little. I find places like this one, which fit nicely into my never ending water project. This particular picture seems to speak to purity. That’s probably why I like it. I realized yesterday that […]


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 became […]


This wasn’t today’s picture. At least it’s not what I planned. I thought that it was a little too bleak for a Sunday picture. I read a lot. Especially on Sunday morning when I have a little more time. I probably shouldn’t do that. There was a story that appeared on Twitter with a link […]


You know me. On most Sundays, you can find me at a second line. This one was important to me. Because, the work is the prayer. The whole world seems to need a whole lot of prayer right now. You know what I wrote yesterday. That’s what this work was for. Second lines are joyous. […]


A lot of firsts. As I work through my archives and share newly “found” images with you, I realized that you are seeing a lot of firsts. A few days ago, you saw my first New Orleans picture. Today you are seeing my first Mardi Gras picture. I made this picture in 1999. On film. […]


Today is September 11. 9.11. The anniversary of the day the towers fell. In New York City. And, the Pentagon was attacked. In Washington, D.C. On September 11, 2001. Today, it almost seems like an afterthought, because most of the past 30 days have been close to hell on earth. In some cases, a watery […]


Earth Day. Forty years or so. I know, I know. What does this picture have to do with Earth Day? Not much. Except I made it on either the first or second Earth Day at a festival. For the life of me, I cannot remember what this tube was supposed to teach. I do remember that the children […]


I’m really into these pre-school train songs. I’m not sure why. It’s probably because they suit my emotional level. Or, something like that. Here’s one about freight trains. “Clickity, clackity, clickity clack! The train speeds over the railroad track.
It rolls and rattles and screeches its song
. And pulls and jiggles its freight cars along. Clickity, […]


Something bright. Something yellow. Something happy. Something for Thursday. Now, for a little full disclosure. I confused and old, dear friend of mine with yesterday’s picture. She saw the mountains below the clouds and wondered if we were headed west. To New Mexico. Nope. She almost nailed it. Those are not sub-tropical clouds. They are high altitude, thin […]
